What’s Happening at St. John’s

Get Ready for Great Wednesdays

Our new program for worship, fellowship, and Christian education begins Wednesday, Sept. 20th.

Come for the Holy Eucharist at 5:30 PM followed by a communal supper from 6:00 to 7:00 PM. Classes will begin at 7:00 and end at 8:00 PM. You are welcome to come for part or all of the evening.

The offerings this fall include:

1.      Inquirers class for those who are looking to be Baptized, Confirmed, Received in the Episcopal church, or those looking to Reaffirm those vows. Or for those who wish to learn more about the Christian faith as understood in the Episcopal tradition. This class will be led by Fr. Nutter.

2.      Centering Prayer Practice and Support Group – This group is for all who wish to broaden their understanding of prayer, develop a more contemplative approach to their spiritual life, or deepen their existing contemplative practice. Led by Signa Strom.

3.      Episcopal Beliefs and Practices – an exploration of the Anglican way of discipleship. Whether you are new to the Church or are a long-term member desiring to increase your understanding of the “whats & whys” of our Christian faith and praxis, this might be the course for you. Led by Pat Sprague.

Please consider joining other St. John’s parishioners as we gather to worship, break bread, and learn

together in community. Meals will be provided by the newly formed St. Andrew’s Guild. Cost FOR THE MEAL will be $5.00 PER PERSON. Those who are planning to attend the supper and/OR classes, please let us know that you are coming, so that we can plan FOR THE CORRECT NUMBER OF MEALS , by emailing the office.

At our recent vestry retreat, we decided to adopt a ministry infrastructure that’s called SWEEPS, which is an acronym for Stewardship, Worship, Education, Evangelism, Pastoral Care, and Service. Everything we are called to do as the Church can be covered by one of these categories.  Click HERE for more information about SWEEPS.
