“If it’s not about love, it’s not about God.”
-Presiding Bishop Michael Curry
ALL people are welcome at St. John’s
and in the Episcopal Church.
“These Doors Are Open for Prayer and Peace.”
Our God is a God of abundance. Many will remember the old offertory sentence when the priest received the offering: “All things come of thee, O Lord.” That abundance is best reflected in the love that God has for all of God’s creation. And we try to imitate God’s love to all who come within the sphere of St. John’s.
Although our God is changeless, in this very difficult time of pandemic, we are all forced to do things in a different, more creative, way. In particular, we have to find a new way to gather as a community for Worship of almighty God and for fellowship. St. John’s is trying on new ideas which are designed for the “current moment.” Keep in mind, that “current moment” has been changing since January 2020 and will continue to do so.
As our society moves into new “phases” we must look at how we can be God’s Beloved Community. St. John’s endeavors to do this by using the most up to date methods at our disposal while always keeping in mind the safety of all. Through a combination of live and live streamed Worship, meetings on Zoom, and having our Worship Services available on our Facebook page, we want to assist as many as possible in coming to God and learning the practices for a Jesus-centered life.
For the time being, we cannot leave our red doors open for prayer and meditation. We must do all that we can to stop the spread of Covid-19. As you are able, and feel safe to do so, please join us on Sunday mornings or be a part of the virtual community by accessing our live-streamed Services.
