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.

Sermon for the 6th Sunday after Pentecost Year A (Proper 12)

As many know, it is garish out here these days. This week has been one of the hottest on record with temps at or near 102-105 a couple days. Of course it wasn't as bad as the heat indices in places around Hampton Roads - upwards of 115-120. We're doing well and keeping cool and hydrated as much as possible - even filled the birdbath to help ease the issues for the backyard critters. Church is moving along and we're getting into the swing of things although they have been seeing a different side of their Rector in recent weeks - I helped do some electrical work in the Sanctuary (yes, I am capable of safely working on electrical things - part of my many skills thanks to the Navy).

I've attaches a copy of the sermon I preached this morning and I admit; I broke the rule of preaching (and one of the Rules of Leroy Jethro Gibbs - don’t apologize for a mistake in your delivery unless it's a factual mistake) but it was needed today. Today’s Sermon entitled “how do we tell God’s story?” is attached below.
