St. John's Episcopal Church is located at 405 N. Saginaw Road, between St. Andrew's Rd. and Hillcrest Rd. The main entrance for worship is through the gates closest to St. Andrew's Rd.  The main entrance for parish offices is in the Griswold Ministry Center, closer to Hillcrest Rd.  Ramp and railing are present at both entrances, with option to use an automatic-opening door to enter and exit the Griswold Ministry Center.

Handicap and First Time Visitor parking spaces are marked near the entrance to the Griswold Ministry Center, closer to the north end of our parking lot and Hillcrest Rd. 

If you need physical assistance, please let our greeters and ushers know.




We regularly offer nursery care during 10am worship and have privacy rocking chairs and worship bags for in-church activity for the youngest ages.  In school months, we offer formation classes and creative outreach activities for children of all ages. 




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.

I'm considering becoming an Episcopalian.... In a live Q&A, the recently former presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church, Most Rev. Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schoris, was asked what she would say to a person considering becoming an Episcopalian.  Click on this 2 minute video for her answer.


I'm not familiar with some of the terms used in church, can I get a little help?  Absolutely!  The Episcopal Church site has a comprehensive glossary page and you're always welcome to ask our clergy about things referenced in church.
