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.

Checking in on Sunday October 14, 2012

Greetings friends, neighbors, and visitors. It was a blessed day with plenty of sun and a light dew on the lawn. We were blessed with a new nursery attendant and pray that Lillian enjoys working and serving with our family of children. We also were blessed to welcome two of our neighbors from across King's Highway to worship for the first time. What a blessing and a glimpse of the hope that we have for a future.

It was nice to be back at St. John's after a weekend away serving as a spiritual director for a retreat. We enjoyed the third offering from St. John Singers - the Alleluia Round (arr. by Proulx). We took a look at our life with God as we reflected on the common theme of Job, the Psalmist from Psalm 22, and the Rich Man. We considered what our relationship with God requires of us and how we can be encouraged and blessed as we lay our hearts and souls open to God. Comments are appreciated.
