Summer Service Times

Beginning April 18, 2021, St. John’s will again have Eucharist at our Sunday Services!

  • In-person gatherings are limited in size, so we ask that you sign up in advance.
  • Health department regulations require that we log visitor names and contact information in case contact tracing is necessary.
  • Masks and distancing must still be observed — even by people who have been vaccinated.
  • We will not leave our pews to pass the Peace.
  • We will not pass the collection plate at the Offertory – please leave your offering in the plates at the front or  back of the church.
  • Communion will be distributed from the front steps of the chancel, rather than at the altar rail. There will be both bread and wine, and we will use intinction cups for the wine.
