                    Welcome to St. John's website       

We are a congregation that seeks to be a fountain of life for all who gather here and a river of compassion for the world.  We as the church gather for worship and then scatter for service in the places of influence God leads us into.  We are discovering our worship is not confined by building or space but in the calm places we construct in our homes for a time on Sundays so please join us as we lead worship remotely on Facebook Live.  We also look forward to worshiping with you in now again In-Person!  St. John's is open again for In-Person services on Sunday's!  Come join us in worship, prayer and in the work of the Lord!

In response to input from the congregation, the current situation in the country and city, and updated best practices according to CDC, the Safety Task Force recommends the following changes for worshipping at St. John's.  Beginning this week, June 27th:

Seating for worship  will be in every other pew.  We will NOT be asking for reservations.  Masking optional for those who are vaccinated.  If you wish to sing please be prepared to slip you mask on while you sing.  Please complete a Communion Card and place it in the offering plate.  8:15 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. worship will continue to be about 45 minutes.  The 8:15 a.m. will also continue to be live on Facebook.  Pastors will be greeting outdoors following the services.
