New Worship Series

LOVE IS . . .

5.24 - 6.21.2020

Love is everything!  It is what we are called to live into, a life filled with love for God and love for neighbor.  Some authors suggest that to learn to love completely is the pinnacle of being human.  Love is a universal language that sees past the barriers of age, gender, ethnicity, status, and a whole lot more.  What is fascinating is that in the English language we have chosen one word to try and explain four different relationships.  During this next series we will learn how love is the ultimate expression of connection with friends, a partner, your family, and your neighbor.  I invite you to join us for “Love Is . . .”


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.

Previous Series


4.26 - 5.17.2020

The Christian community spends a lot of time and effort on the season of Lent, Holy Week, and Easter Sunday. We host special services for Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday. We invite people to give up something for Lent, or maybe to start a new spiritual discipline during this time. We plan for and execute Easter Egg hunts for neighborhood families and our kids. We get together for Easter brunch with our church friends and our family. And then on the Monday after Easter Sunday, it is back to life as usual. But life is not normal, we are not living it as we usually do. Life is literally different for us and it could be spiritually different as well. The Gospels remind us that there is more to the story of Jesus than just his resurrection. The encounters with the resurrected Jesus launched something new. You are invited to join us for our new series, But There’s More! We believe it will be a time to help us make sense of where we are and were God is sending us.
