Our New Hymnals

will be dedicated Sun., Oct. 1st in the 10:30 service. Fr. Tom Margrave will be our guest Celebrant and preacher.

The “Lift Every Voice and Sing” (LEVAS) hymnal is used widely by Episcopal congregations across the country, It contains 280 musical pieces from the African American, Folk, Evangelical, and Gospel traditions compiled under the supervision of the Office of Black Ministries of the Episcopal Church.

This new cultural resource will supplement our Hymnal 1982 and will help enrich the ongoing worship life of St. John’s Episcopal Church, broadening the musical experience for all members of and visitors to our congregation.

You have an opportunity to be a part of this important addition to our church by making a $20 donation to the St. John’s Memorial Fund to have a book dedicated in memory of a loved one or in honor of a loved one, friend or program. Book plates will be placed in the front of the dedicated books. Use the form below to submit your dedication request; and thank you!
