At St. John's, we value the commitment of our partners and guests. Because of the commitment of the finances, time, and energy of the St. John's community, we are able to provide a safe, open, and real space for all to worship and encounter God's presence. What makes St. John's special is our commitment to our kids, Harvest food pantry, and music.
