Come Discover Your

At St. John’s, you’ll find a fresh start for life, hope, and community in Jesus—whether from the Hillside neighborhood, Milwaukee area, or beyond.



Don’t you wish meaning would just…meet you already? Would just come at your doorstep, embrace you with a hug, and open the door to…a purposeful life? Don’t you wish your labor of searching and sifting through this noisy, cluttered, hurt world would finally…end? Finally find meaning that…actually lasts? Good news! Meaning Meets You! Jesus has come to us to bring a purposeful, meaningful life that actually lasts. Despite what we may think about ourselves or our world, Jesus brings every person the forgiveness, healing, and hope needed to say, “My life has meaning because God has given me Meaning.”



SUNDAY, JUNE 9 @10:00 am

In that mirror, who do we see? Who do we want to see? What do we wish to change about…me? Identity is hard sometimes, right?! On this Sunday, we look into the mirror of God’s Word—Jesus—to see the sin he takes away, the grace he outpours, and say, “I am someone loved by God.”


SUNDAY, JUNE 16 @10:00 am

We can think God’s will is to be a better person for the world, be better living a Christian life, or be happy. On this Sunday, Jesus shifts our attention away from ourselves and circumstances…to him. For God’s will is to look to Jesus and believe to never be lost to God and always have life.

What is love?” A great song? A great poem intro? A great feeling? “Love” can mean many different things to many different people. This leads to individuals determining and defining love for themselves. Yet, Jesus reveals that just cannot be. On this Sunday, love is found only in God who is love and rescues the unlovable.


SUNDAY, JUNE 30 @10:00 am

Whether it be work, parenthood, helping others, relationships…the list goes on about what we may think we’re supposed to do with our life; why we are here. Yet, it often becomes this cycle of dissatisfaction and disappointment. On this Sunday, we find purpose in declaring the praises of Jesus, our Living Hope, no matter our position in life.

Isaiah 40:31

What We Believe

We draw what we believe and teach from the ageless wisdom and truth of God’s Word—the Bible. God’s Word provides us the confidence to pursue opportunities and confront problems old and new.


Jesus sacrificed himself to remove our sins. In his love we can find healing for how others have hurt us, how we’ve hurt others, or even how we’ve hurt ourselves.


God will never abandon us. From our darkest days to our most joyous moments…he is with us, always with a plan. God is faithful and always provides hope in Jesus.


God connects us together in Christ as his family, changing and energizing our hearts with his love.


Every unique human being shares two common purposes that fill our life with meaning: to honor God and to serve others.
