Welcome to St. John's, Mt. Vernon!

God is calling St. John's to serve, both within our church and within the community and the world we live. Our mission is to continue to "serve Christ in the community" as we faithfully have been doing for over 160 years. We strive to be a community where God's love is visibly changing lives, and people walk daily with Jesus Christ. We will show evidence of this type of service to community by celebrating God's call to us to love, by growing in faith, by serving others generously, and by drawing others into the heart of God.

Come and see. Come and worship. Come and serve. Come and join.

  • St. John's COVID Safety Policy

    St. John's Church COVID Safety Policy 05-20-2021

    St. John's is open for in-person worship with specific rules and restrictions. Our COVID plan can be found on this website under the WORSHIP LITURGIES tab. We urge all members and visitors to St. John's to read the document before coming to worship with us on Sunday mornings. Our county has had very few cases of the COVID 19 virus recently, and we are updating our policy as the virus situation changes. We welcome all people to come and worship with us in a safe environment. There may be some Sunday's when the weather is good on which we will be worshipping outside in our grassy lot with fewer restrictions.
