Welcome to St. John's community. We are honored to serve Christ, and to open our doors to all. Please feel free to join us for worship. St. John's can trace its history to the founding of Jamestown. The parish is over 350 years old, and the church building itself has stood for 2 and a half centuries. St. John's saw the American Revolution and served as a camp ground for troops during the Civil War. Through it all, St. John's has been a place of worship and a home for those seeking communion with Christ. St. John's has a rich and abiding history. Today, it is as it was... a place to find and be found by Christ.

Events on Sunday May 2nd

How the Vestry Works- Sun. May 2, 9am- an informative class led by Don Wittenauer and Fr. Earnest Graham. We will look at the roles of the vestry, and how to support and strengthen the ministry of the Church. The class is intended for anyone and everyone in the church.

Renewal of Marriage Vowes- will take place during the 10:30am worship Service.
The book of Common Prayer says that 'the bond and covenant of marriage signifies to us the mystery of the union between Christ and his Church.' We are strengthened in our faith when we learn to love another person in all aspects of life. At its best, the commitment made in marriage teaches us to love each other and ourselves in the best and worst circumstances of life, the way that God loves us. We are also blessed when we see others striving to live out that relationship.

Bob and Bernice Rogers are celebrating their 50th Wedding anniversary this month, and they have asked to renew their vows as part of the service. The renewal of wedding vowes will be open to any couples in the parish who would like to take the opportunity to reaffirm their vows. If you would like to be part of the service, please contact Fr. Earnest by Wed. Apr. 28th.

Bob and Bernice will be hosting a reception following the service, and hope that all will come.
