Greetings from St. John’s United Methodist Church! We welcome all who come to worship, praise God and who seek a closer walk with Christ. You are encouraged to ‘"come as you are": if you dress up or dress down, are conservative or progressive, if you have always gone to church or are just now finding yourself seeking to connect with something greater than yourself. All are welcome here!
We try to provide a space where all can grow on their spiritual journey and experience acceptance and support along the way. We believe that one of the greatest gifts God can give us are folks walking with us on our journeys because we all experience frustration, guilt, comfort, joy, forgiveness, and grace as we study and interpret God’s word for us today.
Our worship services are a blend of traditional and contemporary with a very relaxed atmosphere. They inspire us to reflect God’s love for us through many different missions. Among these are housing the Hope Community Food Pantry, are a host church for the Family Promise Program in Warren County, have an active Sunday School, support two children globally, reach out beyond our community through our Prayer Shawl ministry, have had two wells dug in Liberia to provide clean water to villages and are open to any new mission folks feel moved to try.
We also have several special worship services a year. Two are held outdoors at a local park. Another traditional favorite is a Moravian Christmas Service and the very popular Christmas Eve service held in a barn! If you are ‘church shopping’, looking for a place to call your spiritual home or need sanctuary away from the stresses of life, please join us for worship. Come as you are! God loves you and is here for you - in Hope.
Yours in Christ,
Carla Costantino, Pastor
