We are delighted to have you join us for our times of worship.
These times that we gather are powerful opportunities to hear the Word of God and the voice of the Holy Spirit. The Easter, Christmas, and Summer seasons have special worship schedules. Please check our home page for updates.

Worshiping with Children
We welcome and are delighted to have children of all ages worshiping with us. There is a Prayground at the front left side of the church where children can be closer to what’s happening. This carpeted area affords more room for children to move about and contains a selection of children’s books and toys for those who find that helpful. The space has its own altar rail, so children can receive communion without having to leave the area. It also affords easy access to the side exit in case you need to leave with your child before the service ends.
Others may prefer to sit in the back where they can move around quietly. You are always welcome to leave the service and use the parlor in the parish hall, if you need to stretch your legs a bit more.
11 am Lectio Divina followed by Noonday Prayer
Lectio Divina (Latin for “Divine Reading”) is a traditional monastic practice of praying the Scriptures that leads us deeper into God’s Word. The reading for any particular Wednesday service will be one of the lectionary readings for that day.
12:15 pm Holy Eucharist with Healing Prayer
Chapel – located at the front right side of the church
7 pm on the first Wednesday of the month.
Once a month we offer Taizé, a contemplative candle-lit service in the model set by the French village of Taizé. This prayer service at St. John’s moves along according to a certain rhythm through sung prayers, simple, beautiful music, a time of silence, spoken and silent prayers, and opportunity for individual prayer and anointing with holy oil. We invite all who attend this ecumenical offering to the community to stop, pray with song and silence, and listen to the “still, small voice” within. The mind calms and the soul opens up. God speaks and the heart hears. We invite you to come and share in the experience of Taizé prayer. The 45-50 min. service starts at 7 p.m., on the first Wednesday of each month.
