Family Ministries

Welcome to Family Ministries! We have a place #FOR every child and every type of family in our church. Our goal is that every child will know they are created by a loving God and cared #FOR by a loving church.

Diaper Dash

Want to help show we are FOR families with young children this year? Contribute to our Diaper Dash and share your parenting wisdom with families with new babies and young children. Each family in our congregation with children under 3 will be contacted and receive some LOVE from our church in the form of diapers, wipes, formula, baby food, etc. depending on family preferences. They will also receive a card with encouragement and wisdom provided by St. Joe UMC's many parents and grandparents. To contribute words of encouragement click the button below or email Teah. To contribute financially click the button below, make sure to add DIAPER DASH in the memo. Checks can be written to the church.

Faith In Motion

Faith in Motion is the dance ministry of St. Joe. We offer dance classes in the styles of ballet, jazz, tap, poms, hip-hop, and lyrical. We also offer special classes for older teens, toddlers, and Zumba classes for adults. Our dance program is unique. We teach devotional, scripture lessons at the end of each class. Faith in Motion is focused on being a family-friendly program featuring age-appropriate costumes and music. Community involvement is another integral part of Faith in Motion. We engage in fundraising and performance opportunities in the community on a regular basis.
