“Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name, and is always glad you came.”  -Theme song from “Cheers”


The community at St. John’s United Church of Christ is one of those places.  We welcome you to join us in worship.  We believe that we are stronger together, and welcome you to share your joys, sorrows, gifts, and burdens with us.

Sunday – Traditional Worship at 915am*

led by Pastor Cathy Kolwey

*Sunday school has finished for the season.  During the summer months, children can attend worship with their parents.  There are activity bags in the Kids Space in the narthex, which contain crayons and coloring books.  The Kids Space is also available to be used at any time.  There are games, books, a child-sized table with chairs, and space for children to play so families can still be engaged in worship.   

Communion celebrated the first Sunday of each month.  Coffee hour is the last Sunday of each month.

First Friday is Pajama Story Time!


Children ages 2 to 5 years old, and their older siblings, are invited to church on the first Friday of each month from 5 to 8pm for dinner, stories, arts, and games.

RSVP to Pastor Cathy at 952-466-2080.
