FOR KIDS

We offer nursery care, privacy rocking chairs and worship bags for in-church activity for the youngest in our pews. Presently, we are unable to offer our usual range of age-based faith formation Sunday classes.  The search is underway for a full time Assistant to the Rector whose focus will be on Youth & Children's Ministries.

What Can You Expect?

A warm welcome! 

We try to lead worship in a way that is true to our inherited traditions while exploring new expressions of our faith.  Some of our members come to church in suits and dresses, others in jeans and t-shirts.  *Children are always welcome in church but for those parents who prefer, infant and toddler care is provided every Sunday beginning at 9:00am. *Visit our Youth Formation page to learn more if desired. 

If you would like us to follow up on your visit to St. John's, please take time to fill out one of the yellow "welcome cards" in our church pews.  Every person is welcome to get to know us at their own pace!

About The Episcopal Church

Being an Episcopalianofficial-shield.jpg

We will always have questions, but in the two foundational statements of faith – the Apostles’ Creed used at baptism, and the Nicene Creed used at communion – we join Christians throughout the ages in affirming our faith in the one God who created us, redeemed us, and sanctifies us.  The text of these creeds is available here. 

Episcopal parishes and dioceses world-wide use the Five Marks of Mission as a practical guide for our mission work.  You may find the Five Marks outlined here.

We celebrate our unity in Christ while honoring our differences, always putting the work of love before uniformity of opinion.  All are welcome to find a spiritual home in the Episcopal Church.

The Episcopal Church's website is a fantastic resource that shares what Episcopalians believe and their perspectives.  We encourage you to explore this site.

 

Episcopal Church History & Leadership

The Episcopal Church in the United States of America grew out of the Church of England in the colonies after the Ameri­can Revolution. Today, it is a part of the 80 million member worldwide Anglican Communion whose spiritual leader is the Archbishop of Can­terbury, currently the Most Reverend Justin Welby.  While it remains autonomous of the Church of England, this affiliation unites the Episcopal Church with Anglican congregations in 160 countries worldwide. 

michaelcurry_0.jpgThe Episcopal Church has members in the United States, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Haiti, Honduras, Micronesia, Puerto Rico, Taiwan, Venezuela, and the Virgin Islands.  Elected in 2015, The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry was installed as the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church on June 27, 2015.  His role includes being chief pastor to the Episcopal Church's 2 million members in 16 countries and 110 dioceses.  He joins leaders of the other 38 Anglican Provinces in consultation for global good and reconciliation.
