WORSHIP

What to Expect

At St. John’s, everyone is welcome at Christ’s Table. Everyone.

How We Worship

The Episcopal Church follows the beautiful liturgy of the Book of Common Prayer, and at St. John’s we celebrate Holy Communion at all Sunday morning services. Our 10am service uses a mix of music styles (including pipe organ, piano, and choirs) and innovative liturgies curated from across the Anglican communion and developed by St. John’s liturgy planning team. Once a month, we follow Rite II from the Book of Common Prayer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear?

You should come in whatever you are comfortable with. Come wearing shorts and t-shirt, a suit, tattoos or with your hair in a bun. You are welcome as you are.

Can I (or my kids) take communion?

Everyone of every age is welcome to receive communion. The sacrament belongs to Christ, not to the church. You can also come forward to receive a blessing if you’d like a way to participate but don’t want to receive the bread and the wine.

How long are the services?

Service is about one hour long.

I have a specific question about your worship that I don’t see addressed here. Whom should I speak with?

You can contact our Rector, the Rev. Lisa Wiens Heinsohn, or our Deacon the Rev. Rex McKee, with worship-related questions. You may also contact our Children, Youth & Family Minister Heather Miller with questions relating to children & youth programs.
