• New Sunday School program February 26th through April 2nd
  • We start acolyte training early!!


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

  • Bible Study - Thursdays at 10:30 am

    We are reading the Gospel of Matthew. Matthew is the source for most of the gospel readings in the coming year (Lectionary Year A).

    We continue our study reading Chapter 12 for our meeting on March 23rd.

    We begin our discussion by considering three questions: What word or phrase stood out for you? What question does the reading pose for you? What emotion does the reading bring to you? After that...a lively discussion emerges.

    All are welcome to join us.

  • Sunday's "Cool" - new program "This is my Body...Do This in Remembrance of Me"

    We will begin a new "Sunday's Cool" program on February 26th focusing on the Eucharist -- "This is my Body...Do This in Remembrance of Me".  We will examine the tradition and symbols of the Eucharist and how we prepare for the Eucharist.  We will think about what we see, hear, taste and remember at the Eucharist. As usual, we will learn through music, drama, stories, and craft and kitchen activities. Sunday, March 26th is drama activities with Mr. Dwyer.

  • Christ the King Center Listening Session

    The Christ the King Center Oversight Board is following up on their recent questionnaire by holding listening sessions throughout the Diocese. One of the sessions will be held on Saturday, May 13th from 10 am until noon at St. John's Church. In support of the Board's efforts to discern how the future of CtK fits into the mission of the Diocese, "Disciples making Disciples", four questions will be addressed:

    1. How does Christ the King fit into the larger mission of the Diocese?
    2. What are we currently doing at Christ the King that fulfills that mission?
    3. What might we be doing at CTK that is holding us back from fulfilling the mission of the diocese?
    4. What are we not currently doing at Christ the King that we could be doing to fulfill that mission?

    All are welcome to come and share their mission-focused thoughts. Please preregister at "Listening Session Registration".
