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

  • Sunday Service on October 2nd

    Please join us for our Eucharist service on Sunday, October 2nd at 9 am.  This is the seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost. We will continue our fellowship at coffee hour after the service.  We welcome the Rev. Barb Schmitz again today.

    Sunday School has begun. Children meet in the refreshed classroom space (formerly the nursery) to continue a series on "Jeremiah, Prophet and Potter".

    Masks are optional but we will continue distancing by sitting in the pews marked with a green ribbon. We are coming to the altar rail for communion with options for sharing the cup, intincting, or, receiving only the host. As always, if you are most comfortable staying in your pew, communion can be brought to you.

    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. 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.

  • Outdoor Fall Festival - Saturday, October 1st

    Plans are quickly coming together for our Outdoor Fall Festival on Saturday, October 1st from 10 am to 3:30 pm.  The churchyard at St. John's will be busy with North Country crafters and vendors as well as fun family games. The local band, Total Nine will play during the afternoon.  There will also be a bake sale and silent auction and refreshments/lunch will be available.

    This is an opportunity to both raise funds and celebrate St. John's with our North Country community. Help is needed fo set up, take down, staffing, baking, etc., please reach out to Sharon Ritchie to schedule your assistance.

  • Sunday School is Cool!

    Sunday School starts again on Sunday, September 18th with a new unit on Jeremiah: Prophet and Potter. Following the same format as all enjoyed last year with lessons involving story, drama, crafts, music and kitchen, we gather in the new Sunday School room (formerly the nursery) under the leadership of Sarah Burdick.

  • Bible Study - Thursdays at 10:30 am

    Bible Study is held on Thursdays at 10:30 am, meeting in the Parish Hall.  We are reading the Gospel of Luke because in the 3 year cycle of Sunday readings, we are in year C with gospel readings drawn from Luke. 

    Thursday, September 22nd, we will study the last part of chapter 16 focusing on the story of the rich man and Lazarus. When we meet on Thursday, September 29th, we will study chapter 17.

    As a framework for our study discussion, we try to prepare by reading the chapter three times. After the first reading we note what word or phrase stood out to us.  After the second, we consider what question we would ask of the text. After the third we examine what emotions the reading evokes. 

    As Rev. Carolyn is away, we will use her provided bible commentary as a foundation for our discussions.

    Regardless of your opportunity to do the exercise, the discussion is lively and meaningful, so please join us any time.

  • Food Pantry Distribution

    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 and enter the Parish Hall via the deck.  Please wear a mask and maintain social distancing during distribution.
