If You Are New

St John’s welcomes all people to our worship, and other activities and events. We hope to be a spiritual home, and a spiritual family for you, even though we know that the time we walk together may be short or long. Whatever the time may be, we search for God’s presence among us and blessings together.

Below are some questions that you
might have if you are new:DSC_0552

What is worship like?
Our worship is from the Book of Common Prayer. Each week the worship will center around readings from the bible, a sermon, prayers for ourselves and the world, and Holy Communion. The service is printed in its entirety, including the music we sing, in a bulletin that is available to all people attending.

Can I receive Communion if I am not Episcopalian?
All baptized Christians are welcome to receive Communion. If you are not baptized, you are welcome to receive a blessing.

How long are the services?
On Sunday morning, the service is usually about an hour. The weekdays services generally are about 30 minutes long.

There is no dress code for attending services at St John’s. We do encourage people to remember they are entering into God’s presence and dress accordingly.
