St. John’s Church is an Anglican/Episcopal, Christian community worshipping through the power of the Holy Spirit for over 200 years.

St. John’s is much more than a Sunday morning worship experience. It is a family that worships, prays, serves, studies, and has fun together and we invite you to join us in making our family, your family.

If you do not have a church home and would like to make St. John’s your parish of choice; or have a need our church family can help with,  please contact our Parish Administrator, Jeannette, at the church office (315) 393-5470

  • Book Club - Titles and Meetings this Fall

    Our new book club will read and discuss two books this fall

    First, The Lost Letters of Pergamum: a story of the New Testament World by New Testament scholar Bruce Longnecker is a fictional presentation of what seems to be a recently discovered correspondence between evangelist, Luke and the Roman, Antipas (mentioned in Revelation 2:13) that mixes fact and fiction to create a vibrant picture of the New Testament world and early Christianity.  This book blends nicely with our Bible Study reading of Acts of the Apostles and the epistles of Paul, but is of interest to anyone interested in the early years of the Church.  We will meet on Wednesday October 20th at 10 am to discuss this book.

    Next, we will read The Doors of the Sea:  Where was God in the Tsunami? by David Bentley Hart.  Writing after the 2004 Indonesian tsunami, Hart addresses those who see such events as either God's power or His non-existence. He calls both sides to see in the worst catastrophes not the providential will of God, but rather the ongoing struggle between the rebellious powers that enslave the world and the God who loves it wholly. We will meet on Wednesday, December 8th at 10 am to discuss this book.

    Please see Reverend Carolyn if you need assistance to obtain the books.

  • Sunday Service for October 24th

    Please join us at St. John's for Holy Communion at 9 am this Sunday, October 24th, the Twenty-second Sunday after Pentecost. Given the current high transmission rate of COVID in St. Lawrence County, we ask that all in-person attendees wear masks except when seated.  Please sit in the pews marked with a green ribbon. Fellowship at Coffee Hour after the service continues for all who wish to attend.

    Not everyone is ready to come back to church and no one should come if they are unwell or have been with someone who has tested positive for the corona virus so we will continue to make the service available Facebook Live. Click to access our page.  You do not need a Facebook account to view the service.

  • "Sunday Cool"

    There is a new curriculum for our Children's Sunday program this fall from WorkshopCycles.  Each 5-week theme is presented through different activities each week -- music, arts and crafts, story-telling, drama and cooking, all very similar to a VBS experience.

    We are starting with "What is Worship: Teaching Children about the Book of Common Prayer".  We hope the children will join us each Sunday, meeting in the Parish Hall before the Sunday Service begins in the Church.  As is our tradition, the children will join our service after the Peace in order to participate in the Eucharist.

  • Web Site Issue

    The host site vendor for our website company catastrophically lost most of the content of over 3000 church sites -- including St. John's.  We are in the process of restoring and rebuilding the site.  Please be patient as we continue this work.  If you see something that needs to be corrected, please use the "Email Web Admin" link in the left panel.

  • Bible Study - Fall 2021

    Bible Study will be reading and discussing Paul's letters in chronological order, which varies from the New Testament order. We are beginning with the letters to the Thessalonians.  All are welcome on Thursdays at 10:30 am for any or all meetings.  

  • Food Pantry Distribution - Last Tuesday of the Month

    St. John's Food Pantry is held on the last Tuesday of each month from 9:30 am to 11:30 am. Come to the parking lot off Franklin Street.  Please wear a mask and maintain social distancing during distribution.

    Note:  Next distribution is Tuesday, October 26, 2021.
