About Us

 About St. John UCC



We are a congregation of 200+ members, located in the center of the town of Trenton.  Founded in 1870 we are one of the few churches that have chosen to stay on the site where our original church was constructed.

On any particular Sunday, you may find:

  • Music performed by our Chancel Choir
  • Members participating in worship and/or sharing special music with the congregation
  • Special offerings which are taken and dedicated to a variety of different causes
  • Fellowship time following the service each week which is sponsored by either groups or individuals
  • Sunday School for ages three through Confirmation

Some of the ways our church participates in the greater church community:

  • Trenton Council of Churches
  • Illinois South Conference of the United Church of Christ
  • Rainbow Preschool (available to families from the surrounding area)
  • Uni-Pres Kindercottage
  • Community Food Pantry
