You Are Welcome Here


Our mission is welcoming and accepting all people

along a journey of faith and service.

And, yes, you really are welcome! All means ALL.

9:30 a.m. Intentional Faith Development (Sunday School) 

Adults meet downstairs in room A12 for a variety of studies and discussions led by our pastors and/or lay leaders. 

Grades 5-12 meet in the Youth Room on the 3rd floor for engaging topical discussion and reflection.

Kids age PreK - 4th grade meet in the Where It's At classroom on the 3rd floor for exploration, story time, and music.

Nursery for children three and under across from the sanctuary from 9 a.m. to noon.

10:45 a.m.  Passionate Worship       

Blended worship style with thought-provoking preaching and weekly communion open to everyone.

Casual dress and open hearts recommended. Elevator access and handicap parking located on Pearl Street.

All children are welcome in our worship services, however children ages 3 1/2 years - 1st grade are invited to a form of children's church known as Children Worship and Wonder, based around a unique story-telling format that invites children into God’s stories and give them tools to participate in God’s bigger story. The worship approach provides rituals and spiritual disciplines that are practiced each week.



Wednesday evenings:

Genuine Hospitality dinners at 5:30 p.m.

The meal is prepared and provided for a free-will offering.  No reservations needed.

Those who desire to sing in the choir are invited to stay for rehearsal at 6:30 p.m.

Green Chalice Ministries

SJCC achieved a goal of becoming a Green Chalice Ministry of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in September of 2015, and is now working on becoming a Certified Green Chalice Ministry.  As an important step in that direction, the congregation affirmed The Alverna Covenant on Earth Stewardship Sunday, April 17, 2016, pledging to walk more gently on the earth in the management of our facilities and activities. For more information about Green Chalice Ministries or to read the text of The Alverna Covenant, go to







Come join us on the path of faith.
