Worship Times

Worship with St. John’s

We are currently worshiping in multiple ways, both online and in person.  Our hybrid Sunday services allow you to join us in person, join us virtually via a real-time livestream, or view our archived services when you are able to.  In addition, some pre-recorded services ensure that special days go smoothly!

Worship with us on the first Sunday of Advent on Sunday November 28 at our in-person Rite 1 service at 8:00am or in-person and onlne at our Rite 2 service  at 10:30 a.m.

  • If you’re attending in person, please review the guidelines for in-person services below.
  • To join online, go to our Facebook or YouTube.  We start the stream about 10 minutes before the service begins. The service bulletin has the readings and hymns.

Join Us Online

We are offering online Morning Prayer weekdays, and streaming all Sunday services online, even as we begin to meet in person again.

  • Weekdays we gather at 9:30 a.m.  on Facebook and YouTube for Morning Prayer; all are welcome!
  • Online services are available to be viewed any time.
  • Rite 2 Sunday services begin at 10:30; we start the livestream earlier.

In-Person Worship

As of April 18, 2021, St. John’s will again have Eucharist at our 10:30 a.m. Sunday Services!

  • Masks and distancing must still be observed — even by people who have been vaccinated. We wear our masks to make the church a safer place for the immunocompromised and those who cannot be vaccinated due to age or health conditions.
  • 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.

All of our online services are archived on Facebook and YouTube for viewing on your own schedule.
