Welcome

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! 

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

Announcements

  • Breakfast in support of "Lights on the River" March 30th

    St. John's will host a community, fund-raising breakfast in support of "Lights on the River".  The annual Lights event in December raises money and food to support area food pantries including the pantry hosted here at St. John's. Spread the word and then join us for a delicious repast on Saturday, March 30th starting at 8 am.

  • Mothering Sunday - March 31st

    In the English Church, the fourth Sunday in Lent is known as Mothering Sunday.  This was originally a day to return (if possible) to your "mother" church -- the church where you were baptised.  As this often meant that it was a day that families came together, the tradition developed of also celebrating mothers on this day.  Also known as Laetare or Rose Sunday -- a brief relaxation of the austerity of Lent -- the sharing of Simnel cakes - rich, fruit cakes - became part of the day.  On March 31st, we will use rose colored vestments, place roses on the altar and enjoy Simnel cakes at Coffee hour.  Be sure to join us for this celebration!

  • Wednesday Chapel Mass is cancelled during Lent

    We will not hold Wednesday morning 10 am Chapel Mass service during Lent.  Thursday's Healing Service in the Parish Hall will continue at 9:30 am followed by Bible study.

  • Lenten Bible Study - Thursdays beginning March 7th

     

    Join Brian Wehrle for a special Lenten Bible study beginning on Thursday, March 7th @ 10:00 am following Thursday Healing Mass.  Click here for details.

     

  • 40 Acts - doing Lent generously - small group meeting

    Join us during Lent for a study series as part of 40 Acts - doing Lent generously.  We will be focusing on readings from Acts that examine the early Christians who in great personal peril worked to continue to spread the Good News.

    We will meet together on Wednesdays beginning March 13th at 5 pm for a simple meal and then a discussion.  You do not need to attend every Wednesday night to benefit from the program and discussions.

  • Way of the Cross - Fridays at 6 pm during Lent

    Come together in the church to recall the events at the end of Jesus' life from condemnation to burial.  Walking the Way of the Cross imitates the practice of early Christian pilgrims who visited the places of Jesus' Passion in the Holy Land.

  • Food Pantry - last Tuesday each month

    St. John's Food Pantry is held on the last Tuesday of each month in the Parish Hall from 9:00 am to 11:30 am. 

    The next distribution will be on Tuesday, March 26th.
