A Warm Welcome

Hi there, John Heeckt here, the Pastor at St. John’s Church, and I’m happy to see you visiting us at St. John’s little corner of the web!

As you poke around our site, you’ll find out lots interesting things—you’ll find out about worship services, and outreach ministries, and mission partners, and Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts, and even about our church history if you’re interested in that sort of thing.  (Wherein, by the way, interested readers can find out all about “Union Churches” and try to solve the mysterious mystery of “Whatever Happened to the Lutherans”!)  In fact, as you’re poking around, you might begin thinking to yourself, “Gee those folks at St. John’s sure seem like a friendly bunch, and interested in reaching out to their community, and dedicated to knowing and following God, and definitely the sort of people who seem to enjoy a good meal.”

And all of these things are true.  St. John’s is a very special place, a place where people come together to form a true community; a place where people laugh, and work, and worship (and eat) together.  Where relationships are made and developed, and where people are truly interested in trying to love God with all their hearts, and loving their neighbors as themselves.

But, of course, you don’t have to simply take my word for it.  Really, the best way to find out about St. John’s, its people and its ministries is to come and see for yourself.  So, after you’ve poked around the website to your heart’s content, why don’t you join us some Sunday morning and find out about St. John’s firsthand?  I look forward to being able to meet you sometime soon!
