"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." - Romans 15:7
Through this web site, we are pleased to be able to introduce you to that same worship and fellowship as it is expressed in the life of our Parish. If you are a new member of our parish, or are considering membership, these web pages will acquaint you with what our parish offers to those who give it support and sustenance; to those who already belong to the church, we hope they will provide you with the assurance that your sacrificial offerings are received with profound respect, and are utilized to maximum effectiveness. They will, in any case, enable you to make the informed decisions that are necessary for a meaningful relationship with your church!

After many years of serving as the Director of our Sunday School, Connie Monsma has decided to step down. While she will be serving the community in many other capacities, her service to our youth will be sorely missed. A GREAT BIG 'THANK YOU' for your love and concern for the spiritual education of the youth of St. John's!
St. John’s will prepare and serve a meal to those less fortunate at LAHIA (Love and Hope in Action) on Tuesday, September 15. Please prayerfully consider helping to cook or to serve, and becoming a part of this life-affirming Ministry!
St. John's is looking for a Director, and for teachers, for our Sunday School. Fr.

If you have an interest in donating your time and talents to benefit our youth, and our community, please contact Fr. Gregory at (772) 475-4639.
