Welcome to Saint John’s web site!
Here you will find general information about Orthodoxy and about who we are as a church. Our site is not only for the one seeking the roots and the continuity of the Christian faith, but also for the Orthodox Christian who lives this faith daily. You are at the perfect place to orient yourself and to learn and experience more!
We are a small but growing community striving to develop spiritually; to learn and to experience the Kingdom of God in our midst. We come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds and past religious identities, a charateristic that defines our Signature Ministry. Our services are in English, although one may hear many languages spoken in our community. We are not inventing or redefining our faith to meet who we are. Instead, we are embracing the solid and rich Tradition of the Orthodox Church; seeking to be transformed in the likeness of Christ.
After you become familiar with the information here, we encourage you to come visit! Come see and experience what the internet cannot capture – the living Church.
