Worship

There is a unique, calming worship atmosphere at St. John’s because of the historic and classic architecture of the warm and inviting sanctuary.  The old bells and the original pipe organ all add to the beautiful sounds that call us to worship God.

When you come to worship you may expect a small and inviting group of around 25-30 church members, some of whom have been a part of the church their entire lives.  People dress in comfortable clothes.

We sing two or three hymns and regularly include additional music from our choir or musicians playing flutes, guitars, or piano.

Children are invited to a “Children’s Chat” offered by the minister.  Scriptures are read from the Bible and the minister preaches on topics related to the biblical story in relationship to the life of the church and the world.

Holy Communion is celebrated the first Sunday of each month.  All are invited to participate, no matter where you are in your life and faith journey.

The entire worship experience is generally one hour.
