Whatever your priority might be - a closer personal relationship with God, a spiritual home for your family or a sense of fellowship - when you get to know St. John, you'll feel you are part of a large, loving family with persons of all ages joining in worship, study, service, community and fun.
Among the many activities here, ministry with children and youth holds a truly special place. Our youth ministry team is guided always by Jesus' words, "Whoever welcomes a child welcomes me."·Matthew 18:5
We look forward to your visit and your addition to our church family!
Pastor Matthew Mimlitz
