"No matter who you are or where you are in life's journey, you are welcome here at Bem."
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 2, with a 6:30 pm service in the Sanctuary. Over the next five Wednesday night’s we will have dinner downstairs beginning at 5:30. We will serve until about 6:15, and then have worship at 6:30. Organizations and committees will provide the side dishes and desserts, and the church will provide the main dish. This year’s theme is “Witnesses to Christ: People from His Passion.” Please join us as we journey from Ash Wednesday to the empty tomb together.

Welcome! We hope these pages offer a hint of who we are and provide you an invitation to join us in worship, praise, and service of God.
"Bem Church" (St. John's) is truly a family of faith with members of all ages. Our worship is a Spirit-filled celebration combining traditional and contemporary aspects. Mission outreach applies to both local and global settings, including construction of the Bishop Samuel Ruiz multi-purpose facility in Chiapas, Mexico, our Deep Water Well Project in Kenya, and the nursing facility at Camp MoVal.
Our Fellowship activities are inter-generational, and are at the heart of our identity.
