The United Church of Christ has issued an appeal to support immediate needs for families and communities affected by Hurricanes Fiona and Ian.

Emergency response personnel are active. Relief agencies are meeting immediate needs where they can gain access to communities hard hit by the storm. United Church of Christ partners through National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster who focus on relief are implementing their plans. Global Ministries Area Executive for Latin America Angel Luis Rivera is in touch with bilateral partners. Conference leaders and Conference Disaster Coordinators are making contact, assessing needs, and communicating with the Global H.O.P.E. team so that help can be channeled, now and for the long term. 

Your generous financial support will be used by our partners in the areas of greatest need, for relief and long-term recovery. If you prefer, you may mail a check payable to the United Church of Christ, PO BOX 71957 Cleveland, OH 44194. Please be sure to note “Hurricanes 2022 Fund” in the memo section.

Thank you for your support.

St. John's is searching for a new pastor. 

We are a small, welcoming church that seeks to be a source of spiritual warmth and guidance for our local and neighboring communities. Music and fellowship are important aspects of our ministry, as is our commitment to helping provide for the basic needs of our local area and beyond. Whoever is to join us as our pastor should have a love for music, a love and thorough knowledge of the Bible, a desire to lead the congregation in outreach to the community, and the willingness to participate in our coffee fellowship time following each Sunday service.
