Who We Are

The inter-generational community at Saint John’s places a high value on relationships.

We grow and deepen our relationship with God in Christ through weekly worship and through Christian Education/Spiritual Formation opportunities for all ages.

We grow and deepen our relationships with one another through many lively fellowship gatherings around meals in our homes.

We grow and deepen our relationship with the world through the variety of ministries in which we engage. Saint John’s is a community that welcomes single people and families, young children and the elderly, spiritual seekers and cradle Episcopalians.

We hope you will feel moved to join our community some Sunday morning. We believe Saint John’s can be a valuable resource in your spiritual journey and we know that our community will be enriched by your presence.

Christ’s Peace be with you.

What Members Say Add your voice

  • Whenever you ask someone why they go to church they usually say "It's a welcoming place". This is true for St. John's but on such a larger level. The more time you spend here the deeper the relationships become and the "welcoming" feeling just grows and grows. No one is turned away because of race, sexual orientation, or where they are on their faith journey. I have never met a more gracious and warm group of people. Please come and see what St. John's is all about.
