Weekend Experiences

All are welcome at St. John’s United Methodist Church. We are a community where people help, care for, and support one another. To this end, we offer a variety of opportunities for you to connect with God, self, and others. There are three distinctive worship experiences on Sunday mornings (and one on Saturday evening). Each is designed to be both dynamic and inspirational.

Prayer, scripture, and affirmation of our historical and personal experience of faith are the focus of worship here at St. John’s. Music, drama, and other media are used throughout the year to heighten and enhance our congregation’s experience of God.
