 KANKAKEE, IL
Who -- St. John United Church of Christ
What -- Enlarge our facility to become fully accessible
Where -- Kankakee, Illinois
Why -- To invest in our community as an Open and Affirming congregation who wish to connect people more deeply to God's love

The people of St. John UCC work hard to be a place of welcome for all people.  No one is excluded from enjoying fellowship with us because of age, gender, race, color, challenge, or sexual orientation and/or affectional preference, gender identity and expression.

Our Christian congregation appreciates differences in people and encourages diverse views.  We worship God with one another. All are welcome to participate fully in the life of our church.

In the years of growth, we have realized that not everyone can access our facility fully and so we have engaged in a project to make the building without barriers.

Our commitment to Kankakee means that we stay here and build here, so that we can imagine more ways to serve and reach out to meet the needs of others.

Please consider a donation to help us Imagine More!

No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.

First, we thank those who contributed to Imagine More as we began to build! The project is now complete which enables us to be fully accessible to the community. Our dedication was Oct 29 and we have already seen our beautiful space utilized by 2 non-profits in our area. Our goal continues to be a resource for our community, and a place of welcome for all people. We hope to be able to pay off the construction loan in the near future. Any help you might give us even at this point will be so appreciated as we continue to do ministry as an Open and Affirming United Church of Christ. We invite you to contact St. John UCC for more information. May God's peace be with you!

Thank you for everything you do for those who feel disenfranchised. I belong to a church who, while open to me personally, still keep the LGBTQ community at arm's length with their ideology.
