Welcome to St. John’s United Methodist Church. As you read about the many ministries offered at our church, I pray there will be points of interest to you. You reading this information tells me you are pondering about whether our church will be a good fit for your spiritual home. I’ve discovered this is what guides this body of Christ at St. John’s:
A love of Jesus Christ and a commitment to be His faithful people: Whether you are starting to explore Christianity or are a seasoned Christian, you’ll find a warm welcome into fellowship, learning, and service. There is a place here for everyone!
An outward orientation: There is a passion among the people to serve the under-resourced whether in our own city or anywhere around the globe, offering God’s love, material resources, and the Good News of Jesus Christ. Mission transforms our lives as well as our world. SJUMC is striving to make a difference one person at a time.
A diverse people: As a United Methodist Church, we are a people of all ages, nations, and races. Our heritage places primacy on scripture, while in conversation with tradition, experience, and reason. Though we might have differences in interpretation and opinions, we join together in unity to worship and serve our Lord as we grow daily in our Christian walk. I look forward to getting to know you better.
