Geneva Presbyterian Church in St Johns Fl

The Place You Are Meant To Be

Joe AlbrightWelcome to Geneva Presbyterian Church of St Johns, Florida!

Thank you so much for your interest in our church. We understand ourselves to be a family; people of all ages and backgrounds, seeking to follow Jesus together through the ups and downs of the journey of life. We also believe that God has called us into this family for a purpose; to be a blessing to our community and world. As we share our lives together, we become part of a movement, a compelling force for God’s love that is so much bigger than our individual lives. We care passionately about people, because we believe God cares passionately about people. And we believe that God cares passionately about you. Wherever you are in your journey of faith – my prayer is that you would know the depths of God’s love for you – at the very core of who you are. And may God surround you with a family of faith who will encourage you, challenge you and walk with you. If you don’t currently have a family of faith, we invite you to be a part of ours. Come worship with us. Come experience God’s grace with us. And may the fullness of God’s peace be with you. Peace, Joe Rev. Joseph Albright, Pastor

Upcoming Events

Festival of Trees

This is the second year of our Festival of Trees.  Thanks to a most generous bequest of stunning decorations, we decorate 10 – 12 Christmas trees in a variety of sizes.  Each tree illustrates a mission or program that has played a major role in our church life this year.  We support a number of local missional endeavors and this gives us a fun, decorative way to celebrate their work.  Some of the trees are for sale.  Each tree offers an opportunity to make a donation to the cause or program it represents.

Uncle Ron (and the unmerited unearned favor of God)

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God. (Ephesians 2:8) When I was growing up, my best friend had an uncle named Ron. We loved Uncle Ron. He was funny and crass and full of life. But one thing we learned...
