Sundays at 10:00 a.m.
As Christians and Episcopalians, worship is the center of our life of faith. Our worship is liturgical, guided by the Book of Common Prayer and centered on weekly celebrations of the Eucharist (also known as Communion or the Lord’s Supper). As we gather together in God’s presence, we hear the Good News of Jesus Christ and find our modern lives shaped by ancient faith. As we break bread, our eyes are opened to the presence of Christ. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we are made one body, sent forth to live out the Way of Love.
St. John’s currently worships at 10:00 a.m. on Sundays. This intergenerational service is said in contemporary (“Rite II”) language and involves hymn singing with organ or piano accompaniment. Our weekly Children’s Chapel engages little ones with accessible stories and crafts, and older children and teens take on leadership roles as acolytes, ushers, and singers.
Wednesdays, 8:00 – 8:20 a.m.
In many times and places, daybreak has been a time of prayer. The Jewish pattern of regular prayer formed the basis of the Christian monastic Daily Office, very brief but rich with psalms and scripture. Parishioners and friends are invited to pray the Daily Office every day, and together on Wednesday mornings in the church with Rev. Chris.
