LGBTQ+ Spiritual Life Group

Saint John the Evangelist is a safe space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people. We celebrate and affirm people of all sexualities and all genders, and welcome them in all areas of our life together: worshipping in our pews, getting married in our church, participating in our ministries, and serving as lay leaders, staff, and clergy.

Young(ish) Adults

The young (20- and 30-something) adults of St. John’s gather regularly for food, fellowship, and various fun activities. They get together at least one weeknight of the month, some times just for food and drinks, other times for activities like mini-golf, trivia, or a Minnesota United match.

There’s no expectation that you’ve been involved in St. John’s at all before. Anyone who identifies as a Young(ish) Adult is welcome to show up and hang out!
