We are a family of Christians striving to be Christ to one another and to our community. We warmly embrace visitors and make it easy for newcomers to feel a part of our family. At St. John’s we invite everyone to our weekly feast at Christ’s table, regardless of religious background. We look forward to meeting you soon.
