Youth Group

The high school years are some of the toughest years to navigate. We teach them how to rely on God's love and trust as they continue with Sunday School studies.

9 am Sunday Mornings

September thru May

Once church is through for the week, our youth are invited to continue to learn about Jesus Christ with ongoing events scheduled after school or on the weekends.  The mission and vision of St. John’s YOUTH! is to lead students to become fully devoted followers of God. Middle School, High School, and College students have the opportunity to learn more about themselves and others through Bible study. As they handle life's challenges they are able to grow their personal relationship with Christ.

ElderLife offers 1 and 2 bedroom apartments for the "well" elderly.  

Elderlife was started with a bequeath from Turner/Moyer estate in memory of Sena Magdalene Turner in 1980. The wish was to construct a home for the aged and infIrmed, or the care of them. 

Today their mission embraces the goals of providing an environment to keep our elderly independent at a reasonable monthly rent, and to serve each resident in an ongoing Christian community. The first building accepted occupants in 1987, followed by a second apartment complex in 1990 and a third in 1998. The growth of Elderlife is evidence that St. John's UCC is meeting a need in our community.
