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 reflection for Sunday October 30, 2011

As we close in on the end of 2011 we are doing well and welcoming both newcomers and returnees most weeks. Today was no exception – we had a visitor in our midst (the daughter of a member), a member who has been away for a while, and one who has chosen to become a member of St. John’s. We even had a new little one in the nursery so things are looking up there too.

On a somewhat unhappy note, our organist was away recovering from surgery but should be back next week. Our substitute organist is an old acquaintance of the Rector so it was nice to have a known musician as a substitute.

Our sermon was somewhat esoteric but still challenging. We looked at and discussed our ministry and we looked at how we work to do God’s work and help others recognize God at work in them. Today’s sermon is entitled “being a Good servant for God.” I invite your comments and reflections about the sermon.
