St. John’s United Methodist Church is a vibrant, downtown church in the heart of Rock Hill, South Carolina with a mission of “Making Disciples for Christ.” We strive to be a place where church and community meet and where all people are welcome.
As part of the living Body of Christ, we are called to love as Christ loved. We believe that we are to love and welcome all persons—and by that we mean ALL, because each and every person is created in the image of God, is of infinite worth, and represents someone “for whom Christ died!” (Rom. 14:15) Therefore, we welcome persons of every race, socioeconomic status, family make-up, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, mental and physical ability, and faith story. We invite ALL persons to join us on our journey together as we strive to practice loving acceptance of each person and engage in respectful discussion of our differences.
To fully experience this welcome, we encourage visitors and new members to become involved in a small group within the Church, such as a Sunday School class, Bible study, ministry group, or volunteer opportunity. Our pastors and staff are happy to help you find ways to use your spiritual gifts in service to others.
