We are currently offering hybrid worship here at St. John's. You are welcome to join us in-person or watch online. This is a tentative plan; if Kansas City’s health department changes guidelines and adds new restrictions, then we may need to go back to virtual-only.
If you're not already taking advantage of our online giving portal, please remember that your generous gifts toward supporting "The Mission" are just a click away.
Memory can be a
tricky thing. When you relay a past
experience to others, you can only tell it from your vantage point. You will remember details that were important
to you or you may simply forget the event all together. It is also apparent that no two people
experience an event exactly the same.
Each will recall varying details but will not necessarily remember the
exact same details. While our
experiences with God are unique, there are things that we can remember,
especially in a time when we may feel that we are losing something. Over the next four weeks our task will be to
remember our story, our baptism, our sacredness, and our calling. The hope is that it will remind you of who
you are as a child of God. Join us each Sunday at 10:45 AM online or in-person.
All of us seek and want to find a place where we are welcomed and can belong. Some feel like they can belong anywhere; others question if they belong, even in a local church. We, the people of St. John’s, want you to know that all are welcome here! We want to emphasize that everyone ~ and we mean everyone ~ can come and belong here. St. John’s United Methodist church proclaims God’s unconditional love and grace that is for everyone. We celebrate and welcome the diversity of God’s family. Thus, we are open to all who are seeking after God and desire to be in unity with others. So, there it is. You are welcome here!
We strive to offer inspiring and excellent classical traditional worship. Our choir-led service is filled with stirring music, sermons, stories, and opportunities for spiritual growth all led by our laity and pastoral staff. We believe anyone attending worship will be stimulated emotionally, physically, and spiritually for the purpose of leading a holistic and faith-filled life.

This past year has been a test. It has tested our patience, our strength of body, mind, and will, and it has tested our resolve. Between COVID-19, a presidential election, and complex issues with isolation, we have all shouldered the strain of something new and undesired. Most, if not all of us, would simply like for life to go back to what it was before; go back to normal. Likewise, most, if not all of us, knows that it will not. We have a choice. We can be like the stubborn mule who sits down in the middle of the road and refuses to budge or we can get up and walk on. Using the story of Job as our backdrop, we will take an opportunity to claim or maybe, reclaim the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives knowing that God will empower us to walk on in hope, joy, love, and peace.
