What can I expect if I come to St. John’s?
Wherever you are in your own journey of faith, or even if you aren’t certain that you have a journey of faith, you will be welcomed by a community that spans six generations. All are invited to receive the Sacrament of Holy Communion at our three weekend services of worship during the program year and two services during the summer. Our building is handicapped friendly with easy accessibility to the church sanctuary.
Where can I park?
There are two major parking areas, one on the west side of the campus, next to the church and the other on the east side near the Christian education wing. The west side parking area has a number of handicapped accessible spaces.
Where do my children go?
We invite you to bring your children to worship. There is a special “God’s Talk for Children” at our 8 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. Sunday worship services. Activities bags for children are available in the narthex (lobby).
Child care for infants through kindergarteners takes place in the Creation Room during both services. Ask an ushers for directions to the room. If an infant needs some quiet time with a parent, they are welcome to sit in the Fireside Room or the narthex. The worship service can be heard in either place.
Children, ages 2 through high school, are invited to attend Christian education classes from 9:25 to 10:30 a.m., September through May. There are four or five different learning opportunities for adults from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
Can I bring my coffee?
You are welcome to bring your coffee or to enjoy a complimentary cup at our fellowship time in Kley Hall from 9 a.m. to 9:30 – after the 8 am service and before Christian education. From June through August, fellowship time takes place in the garden after 9 a.m. worship.
