We invite you to join us in our worship, which begins at 11 a.m. You can download the worship bulletin using the link at the bottom of this page.
We will gather beginning at 10:30 for a virtual coffee hour and check-in time. We will livestream the worship on both Zoom and Facebook (the St. John's Facebook page). If you would like instructions for joining us on Zoom, please contact us using the "contact us" link on this site. If you would like to join us on Facebook, we invite you to search for the St. John's Facebook group and click the "join" link. We will be very happy to have you join.
The Vestry met recently and has set a target date of September 13th for us to resume in-person worship. The diocese developed a well-researched and reasoned framework for re-opening our congregations and we worked with our bishop and diocesan staff to ensure our plan addressed the diocesan framework.
There will be some limitations, at least for a time. There will be no wine at Holy Communion, no congregational singing, everyone will have to wear face coverings and we will practice social distancing from family unit to family unit (that is, members of a family can sit in a group without social distancing).
We will continue our online worship even after we resume our on-site activities, both as a way to reach those who are separated by distance and to ensure our more vulnerable members (and those who might not be feeling well on a given Sunday) can worship with us.
We will provide more details in early September.
Jesus asked, "Who was the man's neighbor?" We want to answer that question, "We are the neighbor." Whether you live next door or across town, we understand ourselves to be your neighbor and we seek to live into our baptismal pledge to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbor as ourself. It's how we understand our identity as Christians. We invite you to join us in this holy work.
