Welcome to Christ's community of followers here at St. John's. We've been in Walhalla and Oconee County since 1853. 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. In Holy Communion, the body of Christ is always given "for y'all" (in the plural) and never for individuals on a solitary path. A congregation worth its salt is one where members learn about Jesus and his unusual, subversive, life-giving call upon our lives. This is always a process that is never finished for any of us. You are welcome here regardless of past mistakes you've made, theological questions you bring, 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.

St. John's mission:

We are called and empowered by God to spread the Gospel

and to share the love of Jesus Christ in service to all.
