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 and Remembrance on September 11, 2011

This week was a nice week after all the fun from weeks ago – Irene and the cleanup from the downed trees. We had a nice turnout as we reflected on the 10th anniversary of the terrorist’s attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania. We actually had two services today – the main service at St. John’s this morning and a moving community celebration of remembrance at the Chuckatuck Volunteer Fire Department. The community celebration included people from Wesley Chapel, Oakland Christian Church, Suffolk Christian Church, two Ruritan groups, the Greater Chuckatuck Historical Society, and (of course) the Chuckatuck Volunteer Fire and Rescue Squad. We had a good turn out this evening, a blessing because it was the first time the service was held, and there were many comments about the remembrance.

There was a lot of food for thought in our lessons and for the day. Today’s sermon was entitled “Let God be the judge.” Peace,
