Serving God and neighbor for 125 years

St. John’s is an exciting church that exists to proclaim the Good News that is Jesus and reach out in his name. Hospitality, community, faithfulness, service, family and love are not just words to us. They are the most descriptive expressions of the life we share together and they set the narrative for the story that is us. That is how we have lived together for over 125 years. That is the mission God has called us to offer in his name to the world he loves.
