Worship & Music . . .

We were created to praise God, our Creator & redeemer. We gather together to worship God in spirit and truth, rendering to God a worthy offering.

Worship Services
  • Sunday Worship is "relaxed traditional" and includes hymns, scripture readings, and teaching time based on the Revised Common Lectionary. The 45-minute service is held in our spacious Sanctuary. Holy Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month and on liturgically significant days.

  • Combined Mid-Week Services are held each Wednesday during Lent with St. Mark's UCC, Cressona. The informal 40-minute service alternates between St. John's and St. Mark's and includes singing, prayers, and a brief message.

  • Mite Family Worship Room is located at the rear of the Sanctuary for those with young children or anyone having difficulty sitting for an extended period of time. 

  • Streaming of Services is available through our website and Facebook page for those wishing to worship virtually.
