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. 

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

Worship

Worship is a vital part of our sacred journey of hope and transformation.  We invite all to join us in worship and aim for it to be a genuinely welcoming and inclusive experience.

8:00am Sunday

Our early worship is a quiet and contemplative spoken service, without music.  Though it traditionally followed Rite I, we transitioned to using the Rite II pattern of the Book of Common Prayer in fall 2014.  

10:00am Sunday

Our later service offers music and nursery care and Christian formation education for youth (nursery care begins at 9am; youth classes at 10am).  Our 10:00am worship follows the pattern of the Book of Common Prayer, Rite II, with elements drawn from Enriching Our Worship 1.  Our youth formation Sunday schedule differs in summer; please click here for more information.

12:00pm Noon Wednesday

The Wednesday noon worship also offers the Holy Eucharist in a spoken service.  Seating is arranged in the chancel for a more intimate setting.   

 

Throughout the year, St. John's offers additional opportunities to gather in prayer.  Please click on "Announcements" or "ENewsletter" in the menu at the bottom of this page to see if such an opportunity is coming up soon.  If you have questions about schedule changes due to holy days, inclement weather, etc., please visit our home pageemail us or call St. John’s Episcopal Church at (989) 631-2260.  

 

Episcopal Worship

The center of life in the Episcopal Church is the Eucharist, sometimes called Holy Communion, Lord’s Supper or the Mass.   Our preaching seeks to communicate the "good news" of Jesus Christ as it is revealed in Scripture and continually discovered anew in the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives and world.  We draw from ancient traditions of the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion, and we also look to the creative possibilities of culture and technology in our world today.

We believe the Eucharist is the family meal for Christians and a foretaste of the heavenly banquet.  All persons who have been baptized, and are therefore part of the extended family that is the Church, are welcome to receive the bread and wine and to be in communion with God and each other.
