“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.
