Welcome

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

  • Book Club selection for February 2023

    For our next book club, we are reading "The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World" by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. In April 2015, Archbishop Tutu and the Dalai Lama met together for one week to consider answers to the question, "How do we find joy in the face of life's inevitable suffering?". Their time together was facilitated by Douglas Abrams who gathered their wide-ranging discussions into this book.

    We will meet on Wednesday, February 15th at 10 am in the Parish Hall to discuss the book.  There are copies of the book (both regular and large print; audio book (CDs) and online) available through your local public library. If you need help using the request system to obtain a copy, please ask Pat Swan or Nancy Alzo for assistance.

    Advent has been a season of hope, love, peace and JOY -- this book will help you carry the feeling through the coming year! Please join us even if you haven't read the book -- we will be talking about JOY!!

  • Annual Meeting - Sunday, February 26th

    St. John's Church Annual Meeting will be held on Sunday, February 26th following our service.  Along with annual reports, there will be elections for one Warden and two Vestry positions as well as for an additional Parish representative to Diocesan Conventions.

    Anyone interested in a position should speak to a member of the nominating committee -- Jennifer Davison, Chris Dwyer and Candy Storey. Uniquely this year, the representative for Convention will need to be available to attend the annual meeting in June as well as the meeting to elect a new Bishop, likely in the fall.

    Reports for the annual meeting booklet are due to the Parish secretary as soon as possible.

    According to the Bylaws of St. John's, Article I, Section 4: All persons eighteen years of age, both male and female, belonging to the Parish, who have been in regular attendance at its worship and are verifiable contributors to its support for at least twelve months prior to an annual election or a special meeting of the Parish Corporation at which they are in attendance, shall be qualified voters thereat.

  • 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).

    At our gathering on Thursday, February 9th we will read chapter 7.

    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?

    All are welcome to join us.

  • Sunday "Cool" - new program "Baptism"

    We will wrap up our unit on Baptism in Sunday School on Sunday, February 6th with crafts.

  • 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".
