St. John's United Church of Christ was founded in 1892 as the Bellefontaine German Evangelical Church, serving the small farming community of Chesterfield, Missouri. In the interceding decades, the German Evangelical Church merged with the Reformed church to become the Evangelical and Reformed Church, which subsequently merged with Congregational Christian Church in 1957 to form the United Church of Christ. That’s a lot of merging!
Just like the UCC, the community of Chesterfield has transformed over the years, from a quiet farming community to a bustling St. Louis County suburban community. St. John's is currently blessed with many families who are actively involved in the ministry and events related to the church, our greater St Louis communities and world missions. Our modern facilities include a beautiful sanctuary that seats over 350 people, a large fellowship hall, gymnasium, several meeting and conference rooms, and numerous classrooms to accomodates our Sunday School and Pre-School activities. In fact, many of our facilities are available for rent; contact the church office if you are interested in renting the gym, meeting rooms, fellowship hall, etc.
St. John's offers a wide variety of programs for adults and children alike. On Sunday nights, NO LIMITS our youth group for middle school and senior high school students, meets for an evening of fellowship, spirituality, and fun. During the week, there are many other on-going activities, small group sessions, and the Wednesday afternoons and supper features our LOGOS program, for children preschool through highschool (and lots of adult volunteers also)
Adult opportunities also abound at St. John's. Besides the regular Sunday morning Adult Bible Study, there are small group bible studies, regular fellowship activities, sport teams, many community activities (e.g. Habitat for Humanity, Circle of Concern). Additionally, music plays an important role in the life of St. John's. Members may elect to choose from a large variety of musical interests. The list goes on and on.
