St. John's SF

Our Mission:

Safe. Open. Real.

St. John’s Presbyterian Church exists to celebrate God’s love in community: nurturing faith through our commitment; serving others with compassion; sharing and listening with humble hearts.


New to St. John's

Whether checking things out or exploring what faith means, you’re welcome here. We’re from different experiences; faith backgrounds or none, hurt by the church or reacquainted with faith. We’re progressive or traditional, young families, aging adults, play-filled kids, local & around the bay, radically inclusive, vulnerable, discovering & open.

we choose welcome, 
we choose human dignity, and
we choose Sanctuary, 
regardless of citizenship status. 

sanctuary statement

We commit to continuously make our community a more safe, open, and real place for all, regardless of circumstance, including citizenship. 

We believe this because scripture, and the witness of the Spirit, consistently confirm that we are to treat the visitor in our midst with love, just as we would be treated ourselves. 

Our world is full of neighbors. Some next door, some on social media, and some who are unseen, and often avoided. 

We believe loving our neighbors may take many forms as we humbly share the journey. 

We make this statement in opposition to the extraordinary, systematic and unconstitutional discrimination and cruelty towards migrants and refugees, as a witness before God that not all are complicit in this oppression.

Here are three great ways to get connected and develop friendships in a faith community!


Attend worship | Sunday @ 10am

During worship, there are many opportunities to engage: join the choir, participate in rituals, or enjoy the moments of quiet & prayer.  Everyone is invited to worship as they feel comfortable. Kids are invited to attend a Sunday lesson or remain in worship.

Get connected by joining a bible study, attending a yoga class, participating in activities such as an all-church picnic or baseball game, volunteering for Harvest, joining the Sanctuary Huddle, sharing goodies for worship, or bringing toiletries for Hamilton Families

Kids & Families

Whether it is worship, bible studies, or leadership meetings, everything we do is multi-generational. All ages are welcome. Throughout the year, there are opportunities to get together through fun activities, Sunday lessons, and volunteering. Youth are invited to join a summer mission trip.
