Whoever you are, wherever you are on life’s journey,

you are welcome here!

messy_church (640x442) Messy Church is a new (but really an old) way of nurturing spiritual and faith growth in all ages.  We are centered on our time together in worship and in the home.  We have a crayon corner in the church so kids can keep hands busy while participating in worship as their age and attention spans allow.  (Adults can go to the table and color a bit if they are inspired as well!)  Then we have a monthly Messy Church Event with a story from scripture, activities that help us explore that story, a meal together and a closing worship.  The kids end up really knowing that story and the way God is present in our lives today.  We always have activity books for parents to use at home with children, devotional booklets for all ages and special Take Home ideas at the monthly events. Come experience church in a new way at Messy Church at St. John UCC! Sunday services are at 9:30am Monthly Messy Church–will resume in September.

We are located at 228 North 6th Street in Wood River Illinois. Click here for a map: http://www.mapquest.com/embed?hk=1oLgTKw
