Worship Services

What We Believe

Our faith tradition is known by a motto seen on signs in big cities and small towns across the country: “The Episcopal Church Welcomes You.” Our community takes that phrase to heart, opening our hearts and our worship to everyone, especially those who may have been turned off by or turned away from previous church experiences for any reason.

 

St. John’s is a community built on varied backgrounds and faith experiences; we love our tradition and rituals, but we love people even more. We are committed to opening our doors as wide as possible because we pattern our lives after Jesus’ teachings and his message of radical welcome and inclusive love.

 

Worship Services (see Lenten schedule below)

People have a variety of preferences and worship God in different ways. That is why St. John’s offers two distinct styles on Sunday mornings.  We suggest you attend 4-5 times to see if we are a good fit for you!  Eurcharist (or Holy Communion) is offered each week and all who hunger for God are welcomed to the Lord’s supper.

 

8:00am-   Rite II Eucharist (1979 Prayer Book and 1982 Hymnal)

Whether you're an early riser, or looking for a quieter, faithful community, you’ll find space and place here at 8:00am each Sunday morning. We use the 1979 Book of Common Prayer along with just a few hymns to create a full but shorter Sunday service. Our intention is to keep the early service a bit shorter and also faithful to our long heritage and tradition embracing worship through the use of our 1979 Book of Common Prayer. 

 

10:00am- Expansive Eucharistic liturgy and music using an all-inclusive bulletin

This service is designed to invite and engage both long-time members of the Episcopal Church as well as provide a comfortable introduction to our tradition and faith. We prepare an all-inclusive bulletin for ease of participation. Everyone begins worship together at 10:00am. Children attend Sunday school at 9:45am and then return halfway through the service to receive communion and stay with their families throughout the remainder of the service. Grace Choir sings every week supporting and leading the music we make together with both organ and piano. On a monthly basis, other St. John’s music groups join us to offer their gifts including: our SJP House Band, SJP Handbell Choir, and the Joyful Noise Youth Choir.

Lenten Soup Suppers

Wednesdays ~ February 21–March 21 at 6:00pm

 

Remember when we had Sunday night soup suppers and people signed up to bring soup, salad, bread or just something to contribute? During Lent, there will be a Wednesday night soup supper before the Evening Prayer Service. Look forward to a night off cooking dinner, a chance to get to know each other better, and after supper, most importantly, join the evening prayer service and hear St. John’s members share how God is at work in their lives.  Stop by the Sign-Me-Up board today and put your name down for one of your soup specialties! If you are willing to coordinate one of the dinners, contact Betsy Sole at 734-420-6973 or fredandbetsy41@gmail.com.
