The “Church on the Park” is what St. John United Church of Christ has often been called by visitors, friends, and community members of Arlington Heights. St. John’s building has long been a fixture across from North School Park, one of the busiest parks in Arlington Heights. The number of people who enter St. John throughout the week, walk by as they rush to the train, jog with their dogs, or spend time in the Park has increased almost daily as Arlington Heights’ downtown area and surrounding neighborhoods have become revitalized. Though we have a suburban location, there is an urban feel to the area. With new condo buildings, retail establishments and restaurants being built, more and more people are attracted to downtown Arlington Heights. St. John is ideally situated as a valuable resource for the community and for our membership and friends.
