We know that walking into a new church can be a nerve-wracking experience, especially one in a new tradition. At St. John’s we strive to create an environment where everyone can feel at home, whether they are brand-new to the Episcopal Chuch or a longtime member.
Dress however you feel comfortable. Some of our members dress up; others come in a t-shirt and jeans. We gather to encounter Jesus and be built up in community, not to keep up appearances. So come as you are.
You can expect a celebration of Holy Eucharist to last a little over an hour. It will include readings from Scripture, music, a sermon, and of course Holy Communion. We worship from the Book of Common Prayer, but we usually have a bulletin that guides you through the service if you don’t want to navigate a book.
After the service, we usually gather for a coffee hour, where you can chat with people and learn more about the goings-on in the parish. Whether you stay for coffee hour or not, we look forward to welcoming you and getting to know you!
