Worship  Schedule
Sundays 10:00 am Holy Eucharist
Wednesdays 5:45 pm Holy Eucharist

In worship, we use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer


 

Reading the Scriptures, praying together, and sharing a common meal are the ways that Christians from earliest times have enjoyed fellowship with one another and with the risen Lord, and so we continue.

Grounded in the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, our worship service is liturgical and based upon the ancient traditions of the Christian faith, and it is also Biblical, rooted in the Word of God.

We welcome visitors by showing forth God's gracious invitation to taste and see that the Lord is good.

St. John's is a community of believers with varying backgrounds, interests and experiences; but in Jesus Christ we are made one body.

Please feel free to contact our parish office or one of our clergy should you desire more information.  

 

What is Anglican Worship

If you are new to an Anglican worship service, then (depending on your experience in other church settings) it may strike you as a little strange.  In contrast to many of the worship services you might attend today, Anglican worship is formal—that is, it follows a set pattern.  The “blueprint” for Anglican worship is the Book of Common Prayer.   Read More


MESSAGE FROM FR. MARK
 

Hello St. John’s!
As we now enter the summer I know many of you are likely to have travel or vacation plans.  After last year we are all looking forward to a little more ‘normalcy’.  I do want to mention just a few items as we move further into June.

If you have been absent and are ready to return to worship be aware that we are now distributing both the blessed host and blood by means of intinction.  If you desire to receive the host only, that is fine.  Please extend your right hand as a signal to me of your intent.

I am attempting to get an idea of how many people will attend a Wednesday evening study group starting on June 16 and running for 3 consecutive weeks.  There is a sign-up sheet in the narthex, so if you are interested please remember to put you name on the list. 

We have several children who are ready for confirmation study.  I am working with Bishop Jones to get a date for him to visit our parish and offer this Sacrament.  Please let me know if your child (or you as an adult) would like to participate in training and receive confirmation. 

We are also looking at a training day for new acolytes, crucifers, and servers.  I will post that soon.  I know there are a couple of people who would like to be added to the rotation, and if you have interest, please tell or email me so I can include you.

Finally, and this is confidential, the Diocese is collecting financial contributions to provide a retirement gift for Bishop Grundorf.  This will be presented at the upcoming Diocesan Synod.  If you would like to make a donation, please designate a check and place it in the offering.  St. John’s can then send one contribution to assist.

Blessings for a safe and happy summer,
Fr. Mark

Thanks so very much for bringing the items to fill our Red Wagon!
