Prayer and Wellness Ministry

"O Lord, you turned my crying into dancing…"
Psalm 30:6

Prayer is at the heart of who we are and what we do at St. John's.  In addition to weekly formal prayers in worship, members of the congregation are encouraged to participate in private prayer with the help of our weekly bulletin insert highlighting specific areas of need. Please see Links below.

It is our goal to provide listening and encouragement for spiritual and emotional issues as they arise.  During times of loss, change, and personal crisis our pastor can be available for support and guidance.

If you have specific prayer requests or simply need a listening ear, please call the church office to arrange a call or visit. 507-524-3615

Through our pastor and volunteers, we also deliver spiritual care, Eucharistic visits and provide for anointing of the sick for our hospitalized and homebound members.

Our wellness ministry to the community extends into Mapleton Community Home, Heritage Place, the Beacon, as well as hospitals other extended care facilities in the area.  If you or a loved one would like to arrange for supportive visits, please call the church office to schedule a home visit.
