Join us for worship each Sunday morning at 10:00. Reflecting the unique community in which God has placed us, we are a multi-generational gathering of believers, who seek to know and love God as we pursue God’s vision of peace and justice in our community and the world. We welcome your participation in worship, ministries, programs and mission.

The St. John’s Knitting Ministry will meet Friday, June 3 and June 19 at 1:30 p.m. to 4p.m. in the Church office. Come join us for tea, cookies and conversation for a while. We would also be happy to teach you to knit– and we have extra yarn if you need something for starting a project.


Women at the Well first met on October 30, 1999. Since then, we have met faithfully on the last Saturday of every month. Through the years we have shared our lives — although, sadly, many moved on or died. The group’s remnant decided at their scheduled May meeting  that that would be their final get-together. We hope to find much fulfillment in St. John’s other gatherings, staying connected and engaged in each others’ well being.
