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

We welcome you to our church family!  We are celebrating our 200th year in 2020.  Come and see us!

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

  • Pray, Plan, Prepare - Annual Giving Campaign

    In her letter this week, Rev. Carolyn reminded us of Jesus' teaching in the parable of the Bridemaids whose poor planning meant they were shut out of the wedding feast having used all of their lamp oil with no way to replenish it.

    As we begin our stewardship campaign, we need to consider our own supply of oil and how we can use it wisely while building up the supply.

    We ask that you prayerfully consider your giving to St. John's so that we can plan effectively as we prepare to move into our third century of worship.

    Please return the pledge card you received to the collection plate or to the church office or use this form to submit your pledge for the coming year to our treasurer.

  • Fall Bible Study!

    Bible Study is held on Thursdays @ 10:30 am in the Parish Hall.

    The focus for our study is "The Wisdom of Solomon".  As this book is not included in every translation of the Bible, an annotated copy will be provided.

    Join us after Thursday's celebration of Holy Communion held in the Chapel at 9:30 am.

    [As usual, masks and social distancing required.]

  • Morning Prayer and Evening Compline on Facebook Live

    We offer Compline on Facebook Live every evening at 8 pm.  If you would like to read the service, please sign up here.
