Staff & Leadership...
The Consistory is the elected governing body of the church and includes the Pastor, 4 Elders, 4 Deacons, and a Youth Representative. Each is elected to their position by the members of the congregation at the annual meeting held in November.
Saint John's Church is a partner church in a shared ministry covenant with Saint Mark's Church, Cressona and Rev. Kevin Fruchtl, who serves as Pastor of both independent congregations. The Shared Ministry Council, made up of members from both churches, oversees and administers this covenantal relationship.

A NOTE FROM PASTOR KEVIN
Summer is almost here. It is a time for vacations, warm lazy afternoons, and hopefully some much-needed rest.
But please remember that while some of our programs here at church slow down during the summer, we do not stop. The mission of being ambassadors for Jesus continues through the hazy days of summer.
We still worship. We still provide for those who are in need. We still praise the God who created all of the seasons and is the source of our very being.
So during this upcoming summertime, try your best to maintain your commitment to your faith journey. Take a little extra time to read your Bible. Find a way to help someone who is in need or simply take time to listen to their struggles. Remember that God loves you and cares for you in the summer and the winter and all year long.
