About sjpc

worshiping God & serving others

FOR OVER 100 YEARS

SJPC has been worshiping God and serving others for over 100 years. We desire to thrive not just in numbers but in spiritual development and continue as a relevant light in our community and the world. More than just lofty ideals, we are undertaking the needed changes that will enable us to express Gospel truths in meaningful ways. We are active in local and global mercy and justice ministries (including being founding partners of many like UCOM, HabiJax, and others). We are expanding with additional ministries that are consistent with Jesus’ teachings.

Although we feel a faithful responsibility to continue to build upon the legacy established before us, SJPC directs its energy into the time and place where God has us now, balancing the gifts and traditions with spiritual guidance as to what our evolving mission looks like.  We believe we are entering a radical time which calls for emphasis on authentic connection, community engagement and utilizing change as a positive impetus for new life in Christ. We are fostering a collaborative community that engages authentically with our surrounding neighbors without strings attached, illuminating our desire to connect more deeply.

We embody a “come as you are” invitation and desire someone who shares our vision to live out the power of the resurrection in an innovative way.  Through genuine pastoral care, heartfelt family ministry and patient navigation within God’s word, we feel empowered to press onward towards the upper call of God in Christ Jesus, and we invite everyone to come along – regardless of age, race, sexual orientation, class, or any other aspect of God’s beautifully diverse Creation that has too often been used to divide and diminish others.
