Serving God

We at St. John believe God is the Master of all things! In all that we do, we are serving Him and as such, should always strive to do our best regardless of who the humanly boss might be. In all of our encounters, we should treat one another with respect, dignity, kindness, warmth and love always remembering our actions are reflections of God and our love for God!

Steward Board -- Music Ministry -- Ministers -- Stewardess -- Ushers


John 4:23-25

"Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the spirit and in truth."

The woman said, "I know that Messiah is coming.  When he comes, he will explain everything to us."
