OUR MISSION: God has called us to Care, Share, Teach and Love as Jesus has loved us.
OUR PURPOSE: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age." - Matthew 28:19-20

|Once a year, the Church hosts the Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter for one week. This shelter houses people on a temporary basis, giving them a chance to get back on their feet.

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Each year during the summer, St. John's teams up with local area churches to host Vacation Bible School for school-age children. Volunteers are always welcome for this activity.
Our Youth Group, 6th-12th grade, will meet for fun activities at various time throughout the year.
EXTENDING THE FEAST FOR LOCAL FOOD PANTRIES|
|On the first Sunday of each month, we will be taking a collection for our local food pantries.
This practice comes to us from the ancient church. In that time, after all of the people gathered together had eaten, a deacon would take food to people in need. The feast was extended! We hope to continue that tradition.
Please bring your donated items to worship the first Sunday each month.
