A church to discover.

In 2018 St. Joe United Methodist Church launched a campus at the Jackson R. Lehman Family YMCA. We get to offer a non-traditional worship experience - for those who are trying to learn about Christianity and for those who have had negative experiences in the church. We connect with members at the YMCA but we also connect with our community through events and partnerships. Anyone is welcome to attend our worship service and anyone is welcome to participate in our events and partnerships.

Circle Church

2nd Sunday

Circle Church is a unique time to gather in groups and experience church in a new way. This opportunity allows us to do more than just sit and observe but to truly discover all God has for us, together.

Brunch Church

4th Sunday

It’s simple. You come, you eat, you get encouragement, and then you get to go home for your Sunday afternoon nap. There will be coffee-house style music and a short devotional with some thought-provoking questions you can discuss with those around you. And you get to enjoy brunch. Feel free to bring something to add to the smorgasboard or just come enjoy!

Serving Our Community

We are so excited to announce the next thing in how we are #ForTheFort. Every FORth Saturday (see what we did there? FORth=Fourth), we're going to show our neighbors that we are FOR them by serving them and fulfilling a need in their life. Through NeighborLink Fort Wayne service projects, we hope to make a connection with them and be able to show them the love of Jesus.

If you want to join us in serving others, meet us on the 4th Saturday morning of every month at Jackson R. Lehman Family YMCA.

Every Sunday

Each week your kids will have an opportunity to join other kids while having fun and discovering God's love.

Connecting

We are a church that wants to connect with you. We are present in the Y every day so stop by and share a prayer request. 

Our Partnership

With Jackson R Lehman Family YMCA

St. Joe at the Y was launched at the same time the Jackson R. Lehman Family YMCA opened. We've been together from the beginning. We share the mission of caring about our community through Christian principles. We love the JRL YMCA!
