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.

Living Streams is our mid-week worship experience focusing on the practices of story sharing, centering prayer, and communion.  On the first Wednesday of each month the ritual of Anointing and healing is incorporated into our service.

Part of our theological heritage as Wesleyan Methodists is the belief that the scriptures we call the Holy Bible contains all that is necessary and sufficient for our salvation. According to our own published statement it is the primary source and criterion for Christian doctrine and we believe they guide us in our journey to become more like Christ. While we believe that Scripture is the primary impetus for faith, we also believe that our minds are opened to a greater understanding as we integrate tradition, experience, and reason. While the Bible has much to say about human relations and activities it does not say anything about many of our modern and cultural experiences. If the Bible is supposed to guide our journey now, then how do we apply its principles to things like the iPhone, nuclear weapons, environmentalism, social media, or the internet? That will be our journey together in this worship series titled The Bible And . . . If this interests you, check us out each Sunday morning at 8:30 am or 10:00 am or you can listen to our recorded messages. I invite you to join us – we are a community where all are truly welcome.
