Listen to selected recent sermons from St. John’s United Church of Christ. We invite you if able to join us this Sunday morning for worship! The sermons are available here for about 9 months, then kept in our church archives. (Due to technical difficulties with the church recording device, some weeks the sermons are not available, including February 3, 2019. There is no sermon audio for May 5, 2019 because the sermon was a (copyrighted) musical presentation by the Children’s Choir.

25Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his mother, and his mother's sister, Mary the wife of Cleophas, and Mary Magdalene. 26When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! 27Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home. 28After this, Jesus knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the scripture might be fulfilled, saith, I thirst. 29Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a spunge with vinegar, and put it upon hyssop, and put it to his mouth. 30When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
