Join us for Sunday Worship

Sunday, July 14th One Gathering at 10am


Our Vision


Encounter Jesus.  Experience Family.  Embrace the Broken.



We are made to be in relationship with God.  Our loving Heavenly Father sent his son, Jesus, so we could know him. This UP dimension of our lives helps us focus on what matters most.  At Saint John’s we love to worship and celebrate who God is and what he’s doing in our lives.



Life is hard and we need support. God gives us a spiritual family to help us in times of need and to equip us to serve well.  If we’re going to grow in faith, we need brothers and sisters who will love us and challenge us.  This IN dimension of our lives helps us stop flying solo and realize how connected we really are.


the Broken

There are so many people hurting all around us, all the time.  There are so many needs. God calls us to this OUT dimension of our lives to make a difference by serving and sharing our faith in Jesus’ name.  We give of ourselves to the lost, the least, and the last. God has not forgotten you and we won’t either.

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.  
-Jesus in Matthew 28:19-20

Congregational Care

As a family, we work hard to take care of each other.  When one is hurting, we all hurt.  The Body of Christ makes an enormous difference when we go through tough times. We also have a one-on-one Care ministry called Stephen’s Ministry.  Click here for more info.

You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
