A Jesus Centered, Theologically Diverse & Spiritually Vital Christian Community
St. John United Methodist Church’s mission is to grow disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world and to be a welcoming family, joyfully sharing God’s light.
We believe that you belong to God. We strive to be a welcoming family, and celebrate the diversity each person brings. No matter your doubts and questions, your race or ethnicity, your age, economic status, physical or mental abilities, your sexual orientation, your gender identity, no matter whom you call family, we hope to welcome you into the St. John family. We invite you to come as you are, for you are loved by God.

Please be sure to express your gratitude to Linda and Orlo as well as Leslie and Kenny for this incredible gift. May God bless the future use of this property!
Did You Miss Worship on Sunday?
Summer time and Alaskan sunshine doesn’t mean you can’t catch up on Sunday’s sermons during the week… Join us for Wednesday Rewind at 5:55pm every week!
Because of cuts to the State Budget, Clare House, a shelter continuing to care for women with children and expecting mothers is seeking volunteers that are interested in helping to assist in keeping their shelter operating during the day. The shifts are broken down into two three-hour shifts, 9 am-12 pm or 12 pm to 3 pm. Duties will consist of answering phone calls, signing off on chores, answering the door intercom, processing donations, helping in the kitchen, and interacting with participants in the program, including children. If you are interested you may complete a volunteer application located at wwww.cssalaska.org. If you have any questions feel free to call Brigette Guzy, HR Director, at 222-7384. This is another great opportunity to demonstrate the love of God to families in this time of great need!
