Seeking and proclaiming God in Christ, it is our heartfelt belief that absolutely everyone is welcome to participate in the life of our Christian community. St. John’s strives to extend the loving hand of Jesus Christ to all, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, marital status, or sexual orientation. We welcome Christians mature in their faith, those who are beginning to seek God in Christ, and those questioning and unsure about their faith. We welcome your experiences and questions, whatever they are. All are welcome!
