The Mission

Our mission is to...

Lead others to discover and live out their calling

Who we want to be...

You arrive on Sunday and see smiles on people's face, hear joy in people's voices, feel genuine excitement, and it's contagious. Loving, engaged people are hanging out in the lobby before and after church. Every seat is filled in worship and more service times are offered each week. Every visitor is greeted and feels thoroughly welcomed. All because God's presence is abundantly evident.
St. John's has become the center of neighborhood activities and social events. We have an amazing pool of volunteers and enthusiastic participants in our ministries and in community service. We have an after-school program that's open to children in the surrounding neighborhoods, providing a nurturing and safe place for kids. We are effectively reaching more people outside our church walls through technology. The possibilities are endless. It's the church I want to be a part of, don't you? Are we there yet? No. Can we get there? Absolutely, by God's grace. St. John's leadership share this vision for our ministry, but it requires people, both staff and volunteers.
