Who We Are

Who We Are . . .

A caring Christian community with a generous and giving spirit, St. John’s Church Is located in the county seat of a rural community.  We draw almost all our members from Salem and Cumberland Counties.  

When we have visitors or new members, we work hard to treat them as valued members of our family.

Because we are blessed to have a generous endowment that provides for our needs, we are able to open our doors to many community groups that need a meeting place.  We share our facilities with AA, NA, InterAgency Council, NGA and many other groups.  Our church is open during the Yuletide Tour of Salem for visitors to stop by our beautiful facility and hear seasonal music.  Parish members are available to answer questions and relate the history of the church. 


The church graveyard is a feature on the Haunted House Tour of Sale. A guide is available to relate stories about those people and their families who are interred there.

Members are very generous with time and talent. Two different groups have been recognized with the “Community Spirit Award” and the United Way has honored us for community involvement.  Many members are volunteers with local organizations, such as fire and EMS, MHSC, and American Red Cross, to name a few.

St. John’s parishoners take our principles of faith very seriousl. By our presence and our presents, we reach out financially as a parish and as individuals to assist programs and families in our community when there is a need.

The “Coffee Hour” after the10:30 service gives us an opportunity to greet everyone in the church community and to welcome visitors and meet new parishoners.  We want everyone to experience St. Johns' sense of hospitality. The first Sunday of every month is “Birthday Sunday” -- birthdays in each month are celebrated with birthday cake.  The third Sunday is “Sandwich Sunday”, when our ECW sells low-cost sandwich platters to raise funds for their projects.

Our diverse membership covers all ethnic groups.  Everyone is welcome at St. John’s.  Although we may differ in age and income, we are united in Christ.
