60 Years of Service & Counting!
The Lillie Johnson Ladies Auxiliary was started in 1959 when a group of inspired ladies met with a purpose to organize a meeting to serve the church community. They elected officers and named themselves “Lillie Johnson Auxiliary” after the wife of Johnson Memorial Church’s founder. Through the years, the Lillie Ladies have continued to support and serve our church and community in any way possible.
Today, we meet every first Monday of the month at 7pm. We sing “Make Me a Blessing”, have a devotional, prayer time, plan any upcoming church events or activities, discuss church needs or hospitality, fellowship and eat together. All ladies are welcome!
Christian Service - We send out correspondence for get well, sympathy or thinking of you notes. At Easter and Christmas, we sell Easter lilies and poinsettias.
Food Service - We serve food for church members and the community in times of sickness and death. We also provide meal service for some of our elderly as well as any family in need. Organize and prepare food any church wide potlucks, celebrations, events.
Church Ministry - Every month community area churches gather for a Senior Luncheon. JMC hosts this lunch twice and year and we prepare and serve the lunch. We also assist JOY (Just Older Youth) with any events or outings they have. We also work together with other ministries of the church to support events and gatherings of JMC.
Outreach - We contribute our time, labor, prayer, funds to any church project as needed. Send love offerings to those in need. Participate in adopting a family at Christmas time for the less fortunate. Donate items to Harbor House and other local non-profit organizations.
Fundraising - We host an annual Harvest Day in October to sell Fried Chicken and Pastry plates. It includes a country store and silent auction to raise money for our ministry. It is a great way to involve the entire church and promote fellowship in our community.
Phillipians 2: 3-4 ~ Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
