Girl Scouts

VISION:
To develop girls into productive citizens to become future leaders in society.

MISSION:
Girl scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. Girl Scouts recognizes the key role spiritual growth plays in this mission, and that religious instruction should come from families and faith communities. In addition to camps, troop meetings and programs, girls are also encouraged to work with their religious organizations to make a commitment to serve God, and with the help of their families and religious leaders, to complete programs created by their religious organization. Presently, we are recruiting young ladies for the Senior Troop: grades 9th - 10th and Ambassador Troop: grades 11th - 12th. Girls on this level are eligible to participate in activities to earn the gold, silver and bronze Girl Scout Award. Also, scholarships are available for high school graduates. Volunteers are welcome to join the Saint John Baptist Church Girl Scout Program. For more information, please visit the Girl Scout's website at www.gssc-mm.org

God's Puppet Ministry

The GP Crew Puppet Ministry (God's Puppets) of Saint John made their debut with a play on November 10, 2002, at a fellowship dinner before a packed house at Saint John. The Ministry began with 6 puppeteers and has grown to a cast of 12. The criteria for participation in this Ministry is that one must be a member of Saint John's Sunday School and must be between the ages of 13 up to a young adult. God's Puppet Ministry started under the direction of Mrs. Cassandra Christie. In 2007, Mr. Darrell Vanderhorst became the co-director. The GP Crew has been invited to numerous events including nursing homes, banquets, conventions, state agencies, family reunions, private homes and other events where there has been a listening ear. On September 16, 2007, God's Puppet Crew performed as "The Jamaican Yams" with the Auntie Karen Foundation on South Carolina ETV featuring a story line on sickle cell anemia.

Wellness Ministry

Practicing good health has a Biblical basis. This mixed group of members and non- members are dedicated to eating healthy and performing exercises that are designed to make the body and mind function optimally. Each participant will discover a way of life that should lead to personal wellness. The Ministry hopes to ensure fitness in four areas: heart; soul; mind and strength. The Wellness Ministry combines taking care of your body, being devoted to God and maintaining healthy relationships with family and friends. You may join them at the church for their weekly workouts.
