We offer opportunities for spiritual growth through worship, education, fellowship, prayer and Christian action throughout our community and the world.

Some of the ways we connect with God and Others:

NOTE TO OUR CONGREGATION 

 

While our worship services and other events have been cancelled, St. John’s UCC is committed to bringing people even closer to God during these trying times. We intend to use all means available (email, US Mail, social media, phone calls, etc.) to reach out to our congregation and others with the Good News of the Lord.

Throughout this period where we are unable to meet in person, we intend to share each week’s message. It is imperative that we all continue to pray and worship on our own as we trust God to bring us through this challenging time.
