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.

Message Series


12.01 - 12.24.2019

Each Advent and Christmas season we narrow our focus on the coming of God in the flesh. If we take a moment and pause, we might see that God came in more than just flesh. Much like a unique snowflake, working in harmony with others to set the seasonal scene, God came in different ways to different people in the birth narratives of the gospels. God came in a dream, as an angel, as the Holy Spirit, as a voice, and yes, as a baby. Our aim is to help us claim the ways in which God comes to us as we reflect on the ways God came at the first Christmas. I invite you to join us for our Advent worship series titled God Who Comes. I hope it will help you to see the ways God is still coming into our world and our very own lives.
