In 2015 we are celebrating our 175th year of service.  On July 18, 1840 St. Johannes Kirche was founded by German Immigrants.   A group of German Evangelical Protestants organized the church as a German Evangelical Congregation.  The congregation has changed their name a few times over the years and is currently the St. John's United Church of Christ. 

Through the years St. John's has played a major part of Dayton's, Education and Health Care fields.

To Celebrate our anniversary, a committee was formed and we have a full year of activities planned. Each month we will be showcasing parts of our history and hosting a variety of events. 

Check our 175th program for upcoming anniversary events.

Worship service is on Sunday mornings at 10:30 AM.  Child care is available.

Communion on 1st Sunday of the month

Following the service, we have a fellowship hour .

St. John's has made many contributions to the Dayton Community. Some of our Missions and Partnerships include:

Founded in 1840, St. John's has a long history. 

We are an inclusive congregation that offers a warm invitation for all to come.

   "That they may all be one" (John 17:21)
