The mission of St. John's is to be a live witness of God's presence living and working in the world, by using the unique gifts and talents of its members, both clergy and lay. St. John's strives to bring unity with God to the community through the proclaiming of the Gospel - by loving all as Christ loved us - through prayer, education, and service.
Our main service is on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. and we have Holy Communion at least once a month, times are posted on the board in front of the church. On the other Sundays we have morning prayer led by a Eucharistic Minister.
Crowder College (a two year junior college) is close by and there are many industries in the surrounding area.
