We are worshiping together, in new ways!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all St. John’s worship services and activities are taking place online. For everyone’s safety, there are no in-person activities at church at this time. Updates will be posted on this page and emailed to members. To sign up for St. John’s weekly eNewsletter, scroll to the bottom of this page.
Sunday worship is the center of our life. Yet at the center is diversity in spirit and ways we worship God. Between the different services offered and numerous opportunities for both adults and children to participate and grow their faith, we strive for all to not just hear that they’re welcome, but to truly feel it, and to experience the grace of God.
Please join our mailing list (see the signup at the bottom of this page) to receive information and Zoom links. This will allow you to participate fully in St. John’s activities during this time.
This service blends classic Episcopal liturgy with prayerful innovation. A mix of scripture, music, prayer, and sermon. This service lasts under an hour. This service is available on our website here, or via email if you join our mailing list at the bottom of this page.
This is a virtual participatory experience. Join via our Facebook community group on Sunday mornings and watch the worship service with others. We will experiment with unmuting ourselves during some prayers, using the chat feature to pass the peace, and more!
On Sunday mornings there is nearly always an opportunity for Adult formation and social time. This can include sermon discussion, speakers, and occasional intergenerational events based on the liturgical calendar.
A weekly gathering on Sunday evenings for those who value silence, beauty and contemplation in prayer. The 45-minute service includes prayers, poetry, scripture, chanting and 20 minutes of silent prayer. Led by members of the community.
Monday: A contemplative expression of the Book of Common Prayer noonday prayer service. A reading followed by an extended period of silent prayer. This service lasts 30 minutes.
Tuesday – Friday: This noonday prayer service, from the Book of Common Prayer, includes lively discussion on the scripture of the day. The discussion format follows Gospel Based Discipleship which is an imaginative way to explore scripture created by indigenous people. This service lasts 60 minutes.
Using innovative liturgies from across the Anglican Communion, the service includes a discussion about scripture.
