New St. John Opens It's Doors since COVID.

We are excited to announce that New St. John is resuming our regular Worship services beginning Sunday, June 6th. In-person services will resume at 8am. Aren’t able to make it? No problem! We will air the services on Facebook and YouTube following service at 11am. You can view our services on Facebook, Youtube, or on our Sermons page of this website. Please be prepared to wear masks for the in-person service and observe a safe, 6 ft. social distance for seating.


Just as Jesus said in the Beatitudes, blessed are the poor and the hungry. Our mission at New St. John Baptist Church is not just to love one another, but to meet people where they are and bring them to where Jesus wants them to be.

regular Services

You are invited to join us for weekly Sunday services. Service begins at 8am CST. Immediately following, breakfast is served in the Fellowship Center.

As of June 6th, we will resume in-person services and continue with our virtual services hosted through our Facebook, Youtube, and Sermons pages. Click the links to view the latest sermons.

We believe that parents should be able to be fully engaged in service, while their kids are being taught the Word in a way that makes sense to them. Your kids are invited to join us every 1st, 3rd, and 4th Sunday of the month for a worship experience they won't forget. From arts and crafts, to storytelling, to showing them how God loves them, we do it all! Simply drop your kids off in the Fellowship Center for breakfast at 7:45am CST, or the Education Building downstairs, and we will take it from there! Children's pick-up is immediately following Adult Church Service. (Please note, if your children have any special needs or allergies, we must be notified in advance).
