A Message from our New Pastor, Rev. Patrick Marshall
I am so very excited to be the new pastor of St. John’s! In the short time that I have been able to get to know the people of this church, one thing has been very evident: they are who they say they are. St. John’s refers to itself as “A church family…a family church,” and that is absolutely true. As someone who is brand new to this community of faith, I have felt loved and welcomed from day one. This church is made up of people who are generous, kind, and always ready to help. They truly love and care for one another, and they would love for you to be a part of this family!
I know that visiting a new church can sometimes be uncomfortable or even intimidating. “What do I wear?” “Where do I go?” “What do I do?” “Am I sitting in someone’s seat?!” But look at it this way: I’m new here, too! We can learn together!
It’s a great time to come to St. John’s, because God is doing a new thing here, and we would love for you to be a part of it. So let’s discover together what God is doing among us.
