Fall Bible Study
Mark your calendars and plan to join us on the following Wednesday evenings at 7:30: October 15, 22, November 5, 12 and 19. We will be focusing our attention on what it will mean to claim our identity as an opening and affirming UCC congregation, and will do so by engaging in Bible Study, dialogue, and careful listening to one another’s stories and perspectives. We will meet in the Library and all are welcome.
The CROP Walk is coming up on October 19th (a week later than usual), so mark your calendars and watch for more details in the weeks ahead.
Welcome to the website of St. John’s United Church of Christ in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. It is here that you will be able to learn about St. John’s, the church, the people, and the activities.
St. John’s has been part of the Lansdale community since 1876. While our beautiful gothic building might cause one to conclude that we are old fashioned or “traditional”, we are deeply committed to keeping our faith fresh and finding new ways to share the life-giving good news of God’s love. Our desire is to honor and learn from our forebearers in the faith, even as we look to the future in anticipation of the new things God has yet in store for us.
In keeping with the denomination of which we are a part ~ the United Church of Christ ~we seek to be extravagant in our welcome of people from all walks of life, no matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey.
Our activities include: Bible Study, Healing Services, Prayer Group and Chain, Prayer Walking, Women’s Monthly Retreat, Men’s Breakfast, Dining Fellowship Group, Children’s Enrichment, Youth Group, Boy & Girl Scouts, Health Ministries Program, Red Cross Blood Mobile, Counseling Services, Alternative Gift Market, and Prayer Shawl Ministry.
We embrace a God who is still speaking ~ a God who, through Jesus, showed us that being Christian is about living our faith, serving God by loving our neighbor, generously sharing what has been entrusted to our care, and being good stewards of all creation. We invite you to come and journey with us as we seek to be instruments of God’s love and peace.
