Sharing Our Building

St. John’s UCC is home to many groups throughout the week.  We are happy to share our building with worthy organizations who need meeting places in the community.  St. John’s has always been known as the “Yes!” church in town, willing to share the wonderful blessings God has given us, including our beautiful building. Some of these groups have met at St. John’s for many years and several generations!
