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

    Thank you to all who have responded to our Annual Giving Campaign. We are grateful for your faithfulness and your continued support. Over the past few weeks, we have reflected on how we as the church will continue to pray, prepare, and plan to seek and serve Christ in all people and respond to others with generosity, especially during these challenging times. Your pledge helps us to continue our current ministries and programs and to plan for all the new opportunities that next year may bring.  

    If you have not made a pledge yet, please mail in your pledge card or go to our website and let us hear from you.  Remember every pledge is important. Thank you for your commitment and generosity.

    You can use this form to submit your pledge for the coming year to our treasurer.

  • Food Pantry - last Tuesday each 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.  We are maintaining social distancing during distribution.  Please wear a mask.

    Note:  Next distribution is Tuesday, March 30, 2021.

  • Prayerful Handicrafts

    We gather on the first Wednesday of each month at 10 am for quiet fellowship as we work on whatever handicraft interests us.  Coffee pot and kettle are on and now that the cold weather has returned, so is the fire.

    If you would like to make a prayer shawl or prayer square for the Pastoral ministry, patterns and instructions are available.
