We are delighted you took your valuable time to spend a few minutes on our website. As you visit, it is our prayer that as you learn more about St. John's, you will also be challenged to explore your relationship to God.
We'd be honored to welcome you as a guest at our Morning Worship Services soon.
Each Sunday, we attempt to bring words from the Bible that can help our members and guests where they live and give them the tools they need to live a full life that has a strong relationship to God.
Christianity is not about specific rules, or clothes, or even activities. Christianity is about a relationship to God through Jesus Christ.
