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.

Reflection for Sunday October 28, 2012

Our prayers are with those who are being affected by Hurricane Sandy - whether already or in the days to come. It has been a rainy but relatively wind-free day in Chuckatuck - not completely but calm enough. This weekend was a blessing for us with many events; the first annual Chuckatuck Founders Day was a highlight yesterday. We also celebrated the life of Mr. William A. Potter, the son-in-law of Eddie Cotten. It was a wonderful celebration of his life and the joy he brought to those who he met.

This morning many braved the rain and winds and came to church. Worship was well attended and a true joy. We started wrapping up our reflection of Job and being healed and took a look at Bartimaeus and how his act of faith serves an encouragement for us and the reminder that it is "Our faith makes us whole and heals us." Through our healing we are urged to God's ministry. I invite your comments.
