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

FAITHFUL PEOPLE


Whenever I stop to think about people that have demonstrated “faithfulness” I think of the saints that I’ve encountered.  They are people who are/were committed to their community of faith.  They are/were people who bore in their everyday lives the fruit of the Spirit.  They are people who are/were unmovable in their belief in and pursuit of God’s kingdom of love and justice.  However, I’ve learned that faithfulness comes in different forms – the church’s saints are not the sole embodiment of faithfulness.  In the New Testament Gospel of Matthew, there are stories of people who stood outside of the band of early disciples and yet, they demonstrated faithfulness in their lives.  I invite you to join us as we look at these four individuals, their story, and the lesson of faithfulness we can learn from each of them.  Our new 4-part worship series, Faithful People, will begin on Father’s Day, Sunday, June 16th.  Come and join us as we learn about faithfulness and how we can live into it as well.
