There is always something good going on here at St. John's! We strive to offer plenty of opportunities for fellowship, outreach, and service as ways of Pointing to Jesus. Plan to attend, get involved, and bring a friend or two!

Matthew 25:37-40:

37"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?' 40"The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'
