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

Pentecost

Pentecost is a feast day on which we commemorate the coming of the Holy Spirit on the early followers of Jesus. Before the events of the first Pentecost, which came a few weeks after Jesus’ death and resurrection, there were followers of Jesus, but no movement that could be meaningfully called “the church.”


On Pentecost, the Holy Spirit descended on individual followers of Jesus as they were gathered together in Jerusalem. New believers in Jesus were baptized as they joined this church.

They, along with the first followers of Jesus, shared life together, focusing on teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread, and prayer. They shared their belongings so that no one was hungry or needy. Thus we speak of Pentecost as the birthday of the church.

Many Christians, especially those of us who have been influenced by the individualism of American culture, live as if the church is useful but unnecessary. They believe that as long as they have a personal relationship with God, everything else is secondary. But Pentecost is a vivid illustration of the truth that is found throughout Scripture: the community of God’s people is central to God’s work in the world.

Thus, Pentecost invites us to consider our own participation in the fellowship, worship, and mission of the church. It is a time to renew our commitment to live as an essential member of the body of Christ, using our gifts to build the church and share the love and justice of Christ with the world.

Cutting the Cake Together

Weddings

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.

Baptism fountain

Baptisms

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.

Flowers

Funerals

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.
