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.

Sunday May 6 - the Visitation by Bishop Hollerith and the Reception of Linda Harms

Greetings friends! Sadly, there will be no sermon posted today. I was given a respite by Bishop Holly Hollerith's visitation (and I forgot my recorder in the office). He preached a rousing sermon based on the reading from Acts 8:26-40. He spoke eloquently about the radical nature of God's call on us and how those who God calls may not (probably won't) be the one's that we invite to join us. But God is in charge of the invitations and not any one of us.

We were blessed to participate in Bp. Hollerith's reception of Linda Harms into the Episcopal Church today. A blessing to observe and a blessing to participate in this service.

And, of course, there was a FANTASTIC potluck immediately following.
