  • New Generations Ministry - This ministry is SJPWC's youth and young adult in the ministry ages 14-35.  The primary focus of New Generation is to be servants of God and of man.  New Generations assists the Culinary Arts ministry every Sunday in serving dinner, washing dishes, and cleaning the kitchen after dinner.  New Generation is also in the process of implementing Generation to Generation:  Bridging the Gap in which the youth will assist our elderly with household duties, yard work, grocery and pharmacy runs.  Our mission is to minister through service.  Our goal is to not wait until we are old to serve the Lord, but to serve Him in our youth!

  • Sister-to-Sister Ministry - This is a God-centered ministry for young ladies ages 12-20.  The purpose is to lend a hand to parents with their young daughters who are at the tender age of experiencing peer pressures. The young ladies are taught what is appropriate to wear, what to say when things get out of hand, and how to carry themselves in a Christ like manner.  We aren't trying to take over their parenting, but lending a hand and letting them know what God expects of them.  We remind them to put God first and let their light shine wherever they go.  The Bible states we are to train up a child in the way that he should go:  and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

This is done through fellowship and teaching them the Word of God through example and deed. The purpose of this ministry is to spread the word of God to children between the ages of 0 -14 so that they can relate the word to their everyday situation.
