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

  • Our Advent Journey

    Advent is a time to quiet your mind and prepare for the joy of Christmas.  Join us on Tuesday evenings - November 30, December 7 and 14 for a program that offers a communal meal, a seasonal reflection and a service of Compline.  We start at 6 pm with a simple supper with discussion to follow at 6:30 pm.  An appropriate piece of poetry or prose will provide the spark.  At 7:15, we will conclude with a service of Compline.

    A number of Advent reflection resources are available for pick up in the Church.  Call the office if you would like one sent to you.

  • Sunday Service for December 5th

    Please join us at St. John's for Holy Communion at 9 am this Sunday, December 5th, the Second Sunday of Advent. We light the second candle on the Advent wreath -- "Faith", joining the first candle, "Hope".  In "Sunday Cool", the children will begin a new series for Advent -- Emanuel-God with Us, focusing on preparation and gifts.  After the service, all are welcome to continue with fellowship at our Coffee Hour in the Parish Hall.  This Sunday our special coffee hour visitor is St. Nicholas.

    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.

    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.

  • Advent Newsletter

    As we begin the new church year in Advent with the anticipation of Christmas, there are many activities and preparations happening. Check out our Advent Newsletter here.

  • 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, December 28th.

    Non-perishable food or monetary donations are always welcome.

  • Bible Study - Fall 2021

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

  • "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 have completed our first two series: "What is Worship: Teaching Children about the Book of Common Prayer" and "What Makes My Church Special". Our Advent series -- "Emanuel-God with Us" -- focuses on preparation and gifts. 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.

  • Book Club - Titles and Meetings this Fall

    Our new book club has planned two books discussions for this fall.  We recently completed reading and discussing Bruce Longenecker's The Lost Letter of Pergamum.

    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 a copy of the book.

  • 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.
