WORSHIP WITH US

TIMES OF WORSHIP

St. John's is a center of continual Christian formation. Our liturgy, sermons, and music are vital and important ways through which God shapes our hearts, minds, and future actions. Offering a variety of different worship services and experiences is a value that we cherish and practice. We invite people to learn about our worship practices and to participate in our different worship ministries because of the liturgy, at its heart, means, "work of the people."

COVID-19 UPDATE FOR WORSHIP SERVICES

Our normal worship schedule has currently ceased due to the COVID-19 coronavirus and for the safety of all who might gather at St. John's. As of Monday, March 16, St. John's was closed and will continue to be closed through Sunday, May 10. After that time, we will reassess the need for us to not be in-person for services and other St. John's activities. We will post updates on our website and ask that you please check back with us.
