About Us

- - Our Mission Together - -

St. John’s United Church of Christ is a loving, supportive, Christ-centered family, glorifying God, proclaiming the Gospel, nurturing growth in faith, and serving God’s children throughout the world.

- - Our History - -

St. John’s Church was the first to permanently establish religious services, and the first to erect a church building, in the borough of Red Lion.  From its beginnings in 1874 when Alice Dietz organized the first Sunday School, St. John’s has grown - in membership, in its buildings, and in its outreach to the Red Lion area community.

First known as St. John’s Reformed Church, we became St. John’s Evangelical and Reformed Church, following a merger in 1934. Today, we are St. John’s United Church of Christ. The UCC was formed in 1957 with the merger of the Evangelical and Reformed Church and the Congregational Christian Church.

During the year 2024, we will witness the love of our Lord and Savior for our 142 years in the borough of Red Lion.
