You are always welcome at St. John’s UCC!
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.

Our annual St. John’s UCC Coat Drive is on NOW! Bring your new or gently-used coats and place them in the collection boxes in the Library and Narthex. A reminder that thrift stores like 2nd Avenue, Impact!, Care & Share, Goodwill, etc. are a good place to find inexpensive warm coats for those in need!  Coats should be donated by December 7th, White Gift Sunday, as they will be distributed that day or shortly after.

Our Fall Wednesday Evening Bible Study Has Begun!

Our Fall Bible Study began October 15, but you are invited to join us any or all evenings in the weeks ahead! Mark your calendars and plan to join us on the following Wednesday evenings at 7:30: November 5, 12 and 19, 2014. We will be focusing our attention on what it will mean to claim our identity as an opening and affirming (ONA) UCC congregation, and will do so by engaging in Bible Study, dialogue, and careful listening to one another’s stories and perspectives. Due to ‘overflow crowds’ at week 1 we will meet in the Assembly Hall rather than the Library. All are welcome – come learn, come share!

COMING SOON!  St. John’s UCC’s 11th annual Alternative Gift Market on Sunday, November 16th, 11:30 am to 2:30 pm in the Assembly Hall.  For more information, click the link below or go to the “Mission” tab, then click “Alternative Gift Market”. Ask your friends to join us – remind them it is cash or checks only, no credit cards accepted. Watch for new organizations joining the AGM in 2014!
