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 8:30am service is from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer and uses pipe organ and traditional hymns. We have a more contemporary service Sunday morning at 10:30am, with piano music and innovative liturgies curated from across the Anglican communion and developed by St. John’s liturgy planning team.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
Each style of service is about one hour long.
