A letter from our Pastor:

Welcome to St. John United Church of Christ! We are a loving, vibrant church that has been ministering in the heart of Robinson for over 136 years. In 1884 a group of German immigrants found themselves on the outskirts of Waco. As an immigrant community, they began a church that would feel like home. In the century and decades since, this safe-haven and spiritual home has grown to be a place of worship, growth, service, and love for many varied folks in our community. We are blessed to live in a community with so many good churches. Why choose St. John?

We are a family

From potlucks to greeting cards, phone calls to visits, I am always impressed at how well our members care for one another. You will never be just another number at St. John, but a true friend.

We are united and uniting

On any given Sunday in the pews you will see those who are from United Church of Christ, United Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Roman Catholic, Seventh Day Adventist, and Church of Christ Backgrounds. We are a proudly inclusive Christian, Congregational, Evangelical, and Reformed United Church of Christ.

We respect tradition with a fresh faith

Our warm and welcoming worship services lean traditional, with a fresh faith that calls us to service, justice, and prayer in God's world.

I hope you and your family will find a home here with us at St. John. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I look forward to meeting you soon!

In Christ-

Rev. Jacob Brenton, MDiv/MBA, Pastor
