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.

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!
The Fall Outreach Mission is getting into gear! This year we will conduct four campaigns simultaneously! You can participate in the traditional Backpack/Clothing Drive, the College Kick-Start Package (for foster youth attending UAA), a new Tennis Shoe Drive and Project Dignity - a socks & undies campaign! With more options, there’s a way to participate that will fit any budget - and we’ll help more kids in the process! Look for a bulletin insert next week and the Mission Moment to follow on July 14. Got questions now? Want to help the coordinators? Contact Rick & Natalie Meidel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 832-418-9200. Thank you in advance for your support!
