"Let Justice Roll" 

Guest Speaker Series

“What does the Lord require of you?” The prophetic words of God say that we should do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with God. The Bible goes on to describe it actively as letting “justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.” We talk a lot about justice, love, humility, and righteousness but how often do these words take form and action. “Require” implies that there is no other option. “Roll down” indicates action. In these vacillating and tense times, the church needs to be clear about its God given mandate and requirement – to let justice roll! St. John’s UMC is proud to announce a guest speaker series designed to help us engage in justice ministries in the Kansas City area. Our aim is to help all move from talk to positive action that will bring about justice and transformation in our community. You are invited to join us as we take time to hear from leaders in our city and United Methodist Church (UMC).

Belonging

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!

Message Series

IMPOSSIBLE DREAMS

1.12 - 1.28.2020

Dreaming is a natural state for every one of us. They come at night while we are sleeping and they come when our mind is drifting in contemplation. They can be frightening and they can be visionary. Characters in the Bible are said to have had dreams and some of them are recorded in the story line. Our next worship series, Impossible Dreams, will take time to examine four unique dreams and the implications they have for modern readers and hearers. You are invited to join us each Sunday in January for Impossible Dreams.
