John Calvin Presbyterian Church began over fifty-six years ago in the Bridgeton area. The church was originally located in a subdivision that was bought out for airport expansion and has been at its present location for twelve years. The church is a member of the larger denomination known as the Presbyterian Church (USA). In recent years as a result of the buyout and the relocation, the church has moved from being a neighborhood church to what has been called a destination church. While many participants still live within the Bridgeton community, many also travel from St. Charles County, as well as, from both North and South County to gather and worship at the church.
By today’s church numbers, the congregation would be considered to be a small-medium size church; however, the church has a very active congregation and programming for all ages. Sunday worship consists of a variety of music from modern praise music, to choir anthems, to traditional hymns to Adult Hand Bells to special music such as vocal and instrumental solos. The sermons are preached in an interesting story-telling style and our Pastor uses the two screens in the sanctuary as visual aids to the sermon presentation. All sermons are strongly biblically based.
Prior to our Sunday worship, visitors are invited to enjoy some food and beverages from our Welcome Center along with a host of educational programs for all ages. Our programs begin at 9:00am while worship begins at 10:30am. During the week, there are activities and programs for all ages that are both a learning opportunity and fellowship opportunity. The church is also involved in many mission projects that support both local ministry efforts, as well as, mission work beyond the local area. The church takes the words of Jesus very seriously when our Savior called upon us to go into the world and bring the love of Christ to all people.
Our congregation is warm and friendly as well as open and affirming to all of God’s children.
