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. We have a more contemporary service Sunday morning at 9am, with piano music and innovative liturgies curated from across the Anglican communion and developed by St. John’s liturgy planning team. Our 11am service is from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer and uses pipe organ and traditional hymns.

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?

The 9am service is approximately 50 minutes long, and the 11am service is a full hour.

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 Rachel Svihel, our Parish Administrator, for more administrative questions, or our Children, Youth & Family Minister Heather Miller with questions relating to children & youth programs.
