Welcome to the St. John’s Presbyterian Church!
We are glad you found us.
We are an inclusive gathering of people who seek to know and love God, receive God’s amazing grace and pursue God’s vision of peace and justice in our community and the world.
Join us for multigenerational worship on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. and various community life events throughout the week.
Start the new year bright! Join this illuminating exploration of the Bible and its meaning for our lives…
The next meeting of the Horizons Bible Study will be Thursday January 18, from 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm in the Campbell Reception room. Glenda Pawsey will guide our discussion as we go over Lesson Four: “In Community With God’s Messengers”.
Another opportunity for fellowship with your friends at St. John’s
Flick Flak, St. John’s fun film discussion group will convene around a potluck supper on January 26. The movies to see Darkest Hour and The Post. Bring your dinner contribution and enjoy a lively dinner conversation and responses to the movies. Newcomers are always welcome — even if you have not been able to see both, either, or none of the movies!
Whether you knit or not…
The St. John’s Knitting Ministry will meet January 19 and February 2 and 16 in the St John’s office. Drop in between 1:30 ad 3:30 for tea, conversation — and knitting. We are making shawls, scarves, hats and baby blankets. If you would like to learn to knit, we’d love to teach you. If you don’t want to knit, we’d still welcome your company!
Once upon a time St. John’s produced a little booklet called “Joyful Noise,” which carried responses from the congregation to a call for a favorite Bible verse, along with brief expression (2-3 sentences+) of its special, personal significance. Contributions were illustrated by kids in Sunday school! Shall we do it again? Yes? Bedside reading to lift your heart… Send chapter/verse/relevance to Gail Peterson.
Save the date
