About the Church:
As an urban church, St. John's celebrates its diversity as a catalyst for personal and spiritual growth. Our members say they've found a church that:

  • Encourages open dialogue on questions of faith; and one in which it is okay to change your mind
  • Values children, and welcomes them on their own terms... a church children are eager to attend on Sunday morning
  • Acts locally and thinks globally on the great issues of our time... world peace; women's rights; racial justice, homelessness; gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights; and protection of the environment

St. John's is a place where you too can find your passion and your place. Our 230 members -- singles, families, single-parent families, the elderly, young adults, and everything in between -- enthusiastically share in the church's various ministries. We have been designated a Green Sanctuary Congregation by the Unitarian Universalist Association. 

Small Group Ministries that develop deeper connections, foster individual growth, and encourage service include:

  • Chalice Groups of 7-9 people meet monthly for discussion, mutual support and community service

  • Adult Religious Education programs
    Before church forums - 10-10:45 a.m. Sundays from Sept-May
    Classes in UU history, Faith Development, Spiritual Practice, Social Justice and Ethics, Great Decisions, Personal Growth

  • Adult and Youth Choirs offer musical enrichment, plus promote diversity and social conscience by the music they sing

  • Social Activities includepotlucks, YADA (young adults), LAFS (over 50), Interweave (GLBT support), Game Night, and First Friday Flicks.

Outreach to the larger world includes:

  • Grants to Greater Cincinnati non-profit organizations
