"A Church Without Walls"

American Sign Language

Exciting News!!  

We now have an American Sign Language Interpreter for 10:00 AM Sunday Worship.   Come join us!

On behalf of all the officers and members of St. John AME Church, I would like to say Welcome!!!!  I am overjoyed and thankful to serve as the Pastor of the St. John Church Family.  Please know that I will always be accessible to you and your family as we navigate through life together. I believe that “We Are Better Together.”


Join us!  We will work and grow together in Christ as we endeavor to live a Christian Life of feeding our spirits through Worship, study, and prayer. Simultaneously, we will be serving those in need within our church family, community, and world. John 15: 5 states, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” We praise God for the fruit that we will see in our personal lives, church family, community, and the world because of our authentic connection to God. 

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.                                                                              Jeremiah 29:11


Welcome From Pastor Locke
