Welcome to Saint John Hattiesburg
Love. Like. Jesus.
"How great is the Love the Father has lavished on us!" (1 John 3:1).
We take to heart the words and actions of Jesus as reported in the gospel according to Saint John, his epistles, and his revelation. They are promises and deeds that shape who we are, how we regard ourselves and others, and how we are determined to live. It's our discipleship, our definition, and our direction. We want to Love. Like. Jesus.
We invite you to experience this together as a community of faith, imperfect people trying to figure out who Jesus is and how we can live in his way. We are earnestly seeking the kingdom of God and joining Jesus on his mission.
As a sacramental church, we celebrate the Lord's Supper whenever we gather together on Sunday mornings for worship. Our Savior invites those who trust in him to share the feast which he has prepared. In this meal we truly receive the body and blood of our risen Savior, Jesus Christ. This is a great and divine mystery! Here we are joined with God and all the saints, and receive the blessings of forgiveness, life, and salvation. Young children and those who would prefer to receive a blessing are welcome to come forward.
