WELCOMING YOU HOME
St John United Church of Christ has been welcoming all into the body of Christ since 1846.
Our Mission is, "To Know Christ and Make Him Known."
St John is a part of The United Church of Christ and we believe strongly that God is still speaking to us all. We are working every week to understand who we are and how we fit in God's plan today. Our church is Bible based with an open policy on communion and we believe in infant baptism.
The St John community hosts a variety of programs including many special dinners and annual events.
This sacred and beautiful, historical building has served as the beginning for wedded couples since 1885.
We welcome you to call or email us if you have any questions.
Join us at a worship service or any of our events.
