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. 

Please fill out and return the "Welcome/Connect" card you'll find in our pews; share whatever and whenever you're comfortable.   

ABOUT US MORE QUESTIONS?

Adult Formation

Christian formation is the lifelong process of growing in our relationship with God, self, others, and all creation.  Every experience in our lives can provide us with the opportunity to express our faith; the challenge we face is recognizing these opportunities and learning ways to live a sometimes counter-cultural life in a secular world.

Regular Small Group Sessions at St. John's Episcopal

Adult Bible Study- Sundays at 9:00am, Activity Room (lower level) - This group discussion focuses on that Sunday's Gospel readings and lessons.  The 9am start time falls between St. John's two morning services and nursery care is offered beginning at 9:00am as well.  It's a great opportunity to talk with people from our different services.  Each bible study meeting is independent of the other so you may drop in anytime!

Men’s Bible Study- Wednesdays at 9:00am, McNab Room

Women’s Bible Study- Wednesdays at 10:30am, McNab Room

Ecumenical Women’s Group* - Tuesdays at 10:00am,*hosted by SJEC

Faith, Families & Fellowship Group –  On alternate Sunday evenings, 6:30-8:00pm, typically at the church, adults participate in fellowship and faith discussions to connect more deeply with one another and God.  To make it easier for parents to participate, St. John's offers child care and Bible-based activities for children through age 12 during the meeting times. Adults are currently studying an engaging video series called Animate:Practices.  A new, four-session series beginning April 19 is called Experiencing Purpose and Meaning in Life. All are welcome to come on any of the upcoming meeting dates: April 12, April 19, May 3, May 17, May 31 

Women Journeying Together - This group meets Thursdays, 1:00pm - 2:30pm in the McNab Room or the lower level Activity Room if engaged in a video series.  Reading and discussion of 3 provided textbooks or video studies guide the journey (1 each in fall, winter, spring).  Meeting facilitators rotate.

Centering Prayer Group - Meeting 7:00-8:00pm on the first Monday of each month, this group practices a type of Christian contemplation which can add depth of meaning to prayer and facilitate the movement from more active modes of prayer - verbal, mental, etc.-into a receptive prayer of resting in God.

Home Groups - Hosted by a St. John’s member or couple, home groups allow for faith formation and fellowship.

 

Special Webcasts, Diocesan Events 

St. John's has and will continue to host webcasts offering opportunities for Christian formation and growth.  Many of these webcasts are aimed at an ecumenical audience.  Most are presented via partnership with the Trinity Institute of Trinity Wall St. Cathedral (NYC, NY) and the national Episcopal Church.  

Occassionally, St. John's serves as the host site for diocesan-wide programming such as the fall 2013 event highlighted in this video (click the image below to view).

Throughout the year, St. John’s offers a variety of opportunities to come together for dialogue and fellowship, focusing on following Jesus.  Are you interested in discussing gospel readings and other Bible passages beyond worship services?  What perspective can you share when we joyfully gather to pray and learn?   Can you help lead small groups in faith discovery and exploration?  Let us know!
Please contact St. John’s to learn more about any of the opportunities listed above.  St. John’s clergy may also be contacted for counseling and preparation before sacraments.  For more information, you may call our parish office at (989) 631-2260.  Related links are also provided below.
