St. John UCC leadership made the decision to reopen the sanctuary for worship as of 10/9/2020. As of now, the church will remain open unless the county moves to "Purple" status. The church will also be open for all of the following events: food distribution on thursday afternoon, bible study on tuesday evening and board and council meetings.
Worship services will continue to be posted on YouTube, the website, as well as be live streamed on the church's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/StJohnUCCCincinnati/) and broadcast on ICRC Cincinnati Bell and Fioptics as usual. If you click the Facebook "f" at the top right corner of the website it will take you to the worship services and Rev. Torie's daily 11:45am posts. Please email Rev. Torie (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to be included in the 1pm Lectionary Bible Study and/or the 6:30pm " Through the Bible in a Year" Bible Study.
As a side note, your continued financial support is much appreciated, and your weekly offerings can be mailed into the church office.
Please let us know if you have any questions. Stay safe and stay healthy!
1 Living in the Most High’s shelter,
camping in the Almighty’s shade,
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my refuge, my stronghold!
You are my God—the one I trust!”
3 God will save you from the hunter’s trap
and from deadly sickness.
4 God will protect you with his pinions;
you’ll find refuge under his wings.
His faithfulness is a protective shield.

ST. JOHN UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST
As disciples of Jesus Christ, we are called by God and empowered by the Holy Spirit to worship, to serve our community in Christian love, and to nurture our members along their spiritual journey.
We encourage everyone to participate as much as possible, as it will certainly benefit the church. Tell all your friends and family because they can also help the church by using AmazonSmile.
AmazonSmile is now active and ready for St. John UCC. Now, when you order from AmazonSmile, 0.5% of your total will be donated to St. John UCC.
Here's how it works:
You must visit AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) to register and select St John UCC as your charitable organization. Be sure you select the correct St John UCC as there are several that are listed. Then, whenever you wish to purchase anything, instead of logging into Amazon.com you will log into smile.amazon.com for all your purchases. All items and costs are exactly the same as on Amazon.com, however, the church will receive a 0.5% donation on eligible purchases. Eligible purchases are noted in the item description.
