St. John's mission statement: We are called and empowered by God to spread the Gospel and to share the love of Jesus Christ in service to all.
Welcome to Christ's community of followers here at St. John's. Whether you're a seasoned disciple or just starting out, followers of Jesus need a church community in which to flourish and grow. Even with all our collective warts and shortcomings, Jesus insists upon calling groups into ministry together through his grace. You are welcome here regardless of past mistakes, theological questions, or personal suspicions you might have about the word "church". Join us for worship, study, and service in the name of the One who makes all things new.
