What to Expect

  1. Worship times
    Our Saturday 5:30 worship uses a variety of instruments and music styles, led by a vocal group called the Celebration Singers, with the primary instruments being piano or guitar. The atmosphere is more relaxed. Our Sunday 9:30 am worship uses a variety of music styles and instruments, led by St John’s Choir, with the primary instrument being organ. When you visit we’d love to know. There are black binders in the pews that you may sign to let us know you were present with us for worship. Both members and guests are encouraged to sign the welcome to worship sheet and place it in the offering plate when it is passed. As our guest, we acknowledge your presence as your gift. Our services include traditional and contemporary liturgies and music. When you arrive, an usher will give you a weekly bulletin that includes an outline of the service, and the latest announcements. Large print bulletins are available, as is access to our hearing loop for those who might benefit from utilizing hearing assistance. You may also follow along with the service using the screens located on the front walls of the sanctuary.

  2. Parking
    Three entrances will let you access our church from either of our parking lots. Parking lots are located on both the north and south side of the church. the accessible entrance is located on the south side of the church. The elevator there will take you to the sanctuary or to the fellowship hall. Accessible bathrooms can be accessed on both levels.

  3. Attire
    Some of our worshipers prefer more dressy attire, others more casual. The choice is yours.

  4. Holy Communion
    At St John all are welcome to the Lord’s Table for communion, including children. If you choose not to take communion, you may come forward for a blessing or remain in your seat. Those communing will come forward, receive bread and choice of wine or grape juice, then return to their seats. The worship leader will give instructions during the service. Once a month in place of Holy Communion we have a Service of Healing.

  5. Children are Welcome in worship
    We encourage families with little ones to bring them to worship. For your convenience, should you need it, there is a nursery located in the lower level. However, we invite you to sit you to sit towards the front so children can see what is going on in worship. Know that you and especially your little one’s voices, cheerios and true selves are welcome in worship. A baby changing station can be found in bathroom at the back of the sanctuary next to the elevator.
