We extend the welcome and love of God to all who come to church. Our worship is something we do together. The complete service each Sunday is printed in a program – no book shuffling or seemingly secret ways to get the hang of – and your voice is welcome and necessary. Worship is rooted in Scripture, which we take seriously but not literally, and follows the rhythm of The Book of Common Prayer, although we often use other prayer sources. Most Sundays there is Holy Communion and the table is open to any Baptized person and every seeker of Christ. Following worship, there is coffee, treats and socializing.
The front door is accessible from the driveway, and an elevator goes to the basement, where there are restrooms. The sanctuary is air-conditioned in the summer.
Worship on Sundays at 10:00 AM

Fallow the Field
In the next four weeks, we will be slowing down and rest with purpose. Spiritual fallow time might be a time when we are not insistent on doing solitary inner work, but quietly letting God help us move away from the things that devastate us: overproduction, too many chemicals, the stones of unjust anger, lack of forgiveness, the hard clods of self-centeredness.
When we move away from that which deadens, we clearly see the poetry that is in our souls. Fallow time is what gives us the space to intentionally rest, to savor the
friendships, the waning light, and all those other small moments and gestures that nurture our trust in the cycle of seasons. To intentionally rest is not a time-out to discipline yourself. The fallow season is an invitation from the Creator to spend time letting micronutrients develop, letting what is small and invisible rise from within your deepest places.
We welcome the weddings of same-sex and opposite-sex couples alike. You may also have a civil union blessed.
Thank you for considering having your wedding at St. John’s. Before scheduling a wedding, we ask all couples to come to a Sunday service. There you can meet our clergy and other leadership and experience a typical liturgy.
You do not need to be a member of the Episcopal Church to have a wedding here. We welcome the weddings of same-sex and opposite-sex couples alike. You may also have a civil union blessed in the church.
We welcome people of all ages--babies, children, teens, adults, and elders-- to receive the sacrament of Baptism.
Baptism is full initiation, by water and the Holy Spirit, into Christ's Body, the Church. We welcome people of all ages--babies, children, teens, adults, and elders-- to receive the sacrament of Baptism. The baptismal rite occurs in the middle of the service on Sunday morning, after the sermon and before Communion. Because Baptism is about joining the community, we do not do private services.
You do not need to be a member of our church to plan this important aspect of the dying and grieving process.
Burial of the Dead is an act of mercy, and St. John’s is active in the ministry of ritual burial. You do not need be a member of our church, or any church to plan this important aspect of the dying and grieving process at St. John’s.
The church seats about 110 people, and we have a full kitchen, tables and chairs in the basement for a reception. Our worship team will also be part of a graveside service or help scatter the ashes of the departed.
