We gather to celebrate services of Holy Communion Sunday at 9:30 am and Saturday at 5 pm.

Our Pastor is the Rev. Valerie de Cathelineau.
Our Associate Pastor is the Rev. Roger W. Griffiths, Jr.

St. John's is alive with youth and faith-formation activities, community events and dedicated ministries through which we proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ through word and deed.

We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person--questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world.

Worship with us.

We celebrate Holy Communion every Sunday morning and share a Service of the Word on Saturday evenings.

During the summer, Sunday service is at 9:30 am and Saturday is at 5 pm.

Built in 2012, our worship space is open, accessible and climate controlled. We project the liturgy, prayers, psalms, lessons and hymns on overhead screens so there's no fumbling with bulletins and books -- but, of course, folks who like to read music can still find hymnals in the pews.    

Depending on the week, our services ring with the sound of a full pipe organ or a contemporary band with guitars, drums, brass, strings and more.

Share a meal with us.

Committed to living our faith and devoting our hands to God's work, we offer a community dinner on the last Friday of every month from 4:30 pm until the food runs out. The menu varies from month to month, but it's always served with lots of love.
The meal is provided for ANYONE in need of food, fellowship or fun. The food, the seat and the smiles are FREE but good will offerings are always accepted.
