The Psalmist asked the question, “Who are humans that [God] would be mindful of them?” I would guess that some of us think that God is too busy to be mindful of you. One of Jesus’ favorite topics was the kingdom of heaven or the kingdom of God. He talked about it as realm where the lost are sought after and where rejoicing happens when the lost is found. Whether you are lost, feel lost, or just occasionally stray, God is seeking after you! Goodness and mercy are on your heels!
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!
SUNDAY WORSHIP (ONLINE)
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.

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.
