Welcome to St. John's United Church of Christ!
Welcome and thank you for visiting us on the web! You may be new to the area and looking for a church to call home, or maybe have renewed interest in your spiritual life and are looking for a place where it can be nurtured. However you got to our web page, we don't think it was an accident and are glad for the opportunity to introduce ourselves.
- At 150 years old, St. John's remains faithful to our roots in the community and to the historic faith and beliefs of the Christian church.
- Only 150 years young, at St. John's we are excited to carry on the mission and ministry of Jesus Christ with generations yet unborn, in ways yet to be discovered.
- As part of the United Church of Christ, we affirm that God has spoken in a unique and powerful way in the scriptures; and that God is still actively speaking in our world today.
- As followers of Jesus we seek to live gracefully, truthfully, courageously, compassionately, and justly in our world. We welcome any who wish to join with us, no matter where you are on your spiritual journey or in life’s journey.
We hope that you will explore our website, but that you will also come and meet us in person. I think you will find the people of St. John's to be warm and friendly, and your faith affirmed, your questions honored, and your talents valued.
Grace and peace to you,
All are welcome to join us for our Wednesday Night J.A.M. Time (for preschool through 5th Grade) and Junior and Senior High Fellowship on Sunday nights. Visit our Youth Programs page for details
