Welcome to St. John
We are growing and there is a resurgence of energy as we envision new ways to "be church" together.
We would love to have you with us on this journey. Hospitality is important to us, and you are welcome to come just as you are.
No matter where you are
in your spiritual journey, there is room under our roof to continue that journey. We, too, are always looking for deeper connections as we walk with Jesus.
There is an emphasis on healing, wholeness and recovery at St. John. It is a place where you can wrestle with the big
questions of of life and explore paths to spiritual wholeness.
Church can be the best place to find new and deeper connections with the Lord. Perhaps that is because we honor the ancient traditions and mysteries of the Christian faith, but we are also open-minded and progresive.

St. John is a community who sees Christ in all people and judges none. We believe in inclusion for all people regardless of race, gender, age, disability or sexual orientation. We aim to break down barriers that separate us from one another and to provide a home for anyone on their spiritual journey. Our work brings together people of faith who believe in the inherent dignity and worth of all people on their journey.
UPDATE on our vacant lot...........
Work on the vacant lot behind the church took place in March to remove the stumps on the property and fill in the holes of all 42 of them!! The clumps of brush by the street were also removed, and the lot was smoothed out for planting. This is phase one of our long range plan to develop the property into a memorial garden with a labyrinth and columbium. Stay tuned for updates and check out the progress!
