Welcome to St. John the Apostle United Methodist Church. I am honored by your web visit today and open our doors and hearts to you. It is both a joy and a privilege to serve as senior minister of St. John the Apostle. My family and my leadership have been embraced with love and trust in truly remarkable ways. The people of this parish are of wonderful character. They know how to serve and how to have fun. They know how to love each other, yet respect their varying needs of love in ways that are mature and filled with grace.
As A Community of Grace, Committed to Making Disciples, our doors are open to all people. Being human is both a gift and a challenge. We all have our issues and needs that require God’s touch. We all need God’s grace to bring out the best in us. There are many opportunities to grow at SJA, all beginning with the spirit of openness. In a world of the ‘me’ and ‘all our stuff” mindset, it is refreshing to hear of a grace-centered relationship with God through Jesus Christ. It is a deep thrill to see such abundant life centered in a servant spirit embraced by the SJA Body of Christ.
We have many great accomplishments to be thankful for in recent years with program, staffing, and financial responsibility leading the list. All of these things have occurred by the hand of God working through strong leaders and great church family members. I offer this experience to you as a person who might well be blessed by the quality of life offered here, for it certainly has been one of the greatest blessings in my life!
