A Message From Our Pastor

The recent decision of General Conference to reaffirm the “Traditional Plan” as it pertains to issues of gender identity and sexual orientation has left many feeling devalued and disenfranchised. Our hearts break for those who feel that are excluded from the church of Jesus Christ.

We at St. John’s continue to be the same church we’ve always been – a church that is open and welcoming to all people regardless of age, race, gender, theological stance, and – YES – sexual orientation. We continue to have the same open hearts, open minds, and open doors that we’ve always had. Our congregation has never been known to treat anyone, or any group of people, as second-class citizens, and we will continue to be a bright light to our community. We are committed to love one another unconditionally and to serve together faithfully in Christ’s name.
