Welcome to St. John's!
155 Milton Street, Brooklyn, New York
"Look! God's dwelling is here with humankind. He will live with them, and they will be his people."
WHO ARE WE?
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.
Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 1 John 4:7-8
We are an official RIC congregation-- a public safe, welcoming, and affirming space for our LGBTQX siblings.

Pray, plan, prepare and serve our neighbors as you are able. We will get through this together.
"In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'"
