Sunday service at 10:30 AM         Communion first Sunday of the month

Who We Are

“Everything we do here at St. John UCC is for one purpose: to let people know that they are loved by God and they make a difference in this world. Every message crafted. Every song sung. Every prayer prayed. Every step we’ve taken as a congregation.”

“Lives have been changed because we shared that message-- sometimes over and over again. And our accomplishments have not shown us that we are wise, wonderful, and talented (although we believe that to be true), but that God is wise, wonderful, and talented beyond our wildest dreams.”

“We invite everyone to be a part of this ongoing ministry, where ‘my story. my choices, my part’ can make differences in ‘her story, her choices, her choices, her part.’ Imagine what God can do with our time. our talent, our energy, our resources!”

“No matter who you are or where you are on life‘s journey, you are wecome here! And we really mean it!”
