FROM OUR PASTOR

First, welcome to St. John's UCC; we're excited you're interested in us! We at St. John's are a church like few others; we are a place where old and young, progressive and conservative come together to worship in faith and love. At St. John's, our worship is traditional, but our outlook is definitely not. So, no matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, we welcome you to stop by and join in becoming "something more" with us!
