Our Story

St. John’s offers a distinct church experience. It is one that draws on tradition but also embraces change and is open to new visions for our path as followers of Jesus. Indeed, since 1922, our historic church has grown and evolved as the city of Charlotte has grown and evolved around it.

We love, value, and celebrate everyone. And we work hard to meet the social and spiritual needs we encounter inside our walls, in our neighborhood, and across our city. Our mission is to embrace and express God’s inclusive compassion and continue the ministry of Jesus.

As St. John’s, we are committed to God, to each other and we are committed to you.

Our campus is located at the corner of Hawthorne Lane and 5th Street, with our physical address being 300 Hawthorne Lane.

Both parking lots connect, are marked with a sign with our name, and are open to anyone coming to our buildings for both church-sponsored and outside events and meetings.

If you are a regular member or work on our campus, please come to our main office on the second floor during the week to receive a parking sticker for your vehicle.

Children & Youth Ministries

St. John’s prioritizes children’s and youth ministries, fostering a nurturing environment where young individuals can grow in their faith. Emphasizing the importance of worshiping together as a community, children and youth actively participate in congregational services alongside adults, cultivating a sense of belonging and shared spiritual experience. Weekly opportunities such as youth group gatherings and children’s Sunday School provide meaningful spaces for learning, fellowship, and personal growth tailored to different age groups. Additionally, mission trips offer transformative experiences where young members can put their faith into action through service projects and outreach initiatives, while special seasonal opportunities like our Super Valentine’s Day Party and other holiday events further engage children and youth in the life of the church. Through these multifaceted programs, St. John’s instills a strong foundation of faith and community involvement in its youngest members, empowering them to live out their beliefs with purpose and compassion.
