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 Children & Youth Formation page to learn more. 

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

Faith Formation in Lent

lent-colorful-palm.jpgChristian formation is the lifelong process of growing in our relationship with God, self, others, and all creation.  This Lent, St. John's offers the following opportunities for anyone seeking to grow in their faith formation.

Labyrinth Walks - Holy Week & Spring

Our rector, The Rev. Ken Hitch, will introduce use of a large floor labyrinth on Monday and Wednesday evenings in Holy Week at 6:00PM in Williams Hall.  Beyond these two evenings, any individual or group wanting to use the labyrinth should contact Ken with their requests so he may share points on its proper use.   

Later this spring, St John’s will host a labyrinth workshop, led by Spiritual Director Nancy Cannon, where attendees will be able to make their own 12 inch ceramic finger labyrinth.  Workshop details, including cost and how to register, will soon be available.

Lenten Book Study - 11:30am Sundays in Lent, through Mar 18 

Starting on the First Sunday in Lent and ending March 18, we will read and discuss together Elizabeth Liebert’s book entitled, The Way of Discernment: Spiritual Practices for Decision Making.  Liebert’s book details specific approaches individuals or communities can take in doing the work of discernment and reaching decisions.  Please order your book online or through your local bookseller well in advance of our first gathering.  Please come to our first gathering having read Chapters 1 & 2.

 

Lenten Meditation Group - 5:30pm Wednesdays in Lent,        through Mar 21 

Starting February 21 and ending March 21, we will gather for an hour each Wednesday evening, to learn about Christian meditation and practice it together.  We will begin each hour with an audio introduction to meditation by Benedictine monk Fr. Laurence Freeman, meditate as a group for a period of time, and conclude by sharing with one another observations and insights from our communal mediation time. 

All are welcome to participate, especially those with little or no prior experience with meditation.
