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.

May 5 - reflections and Sermon link

Greetings on the first Sunday in May on a beautiful Rogation Sunday. A double dose of our reading from Acts; both in Formation class and as the main topic of today's sermon. It was enlightening to take a detailed look at Paul and Lydia in class and discuss how we are called to look outside the status quo for places where God is calling us to work.

In worship we had a good group of people and a nice offering from the choir. They sang Christ, Circle Round Us as a communion offering - probably a nice wrap to the first portion of their first year together. Many thanks to Roger, our Minister of Music for helping us worship and remember the blessings of our shared life. Our singing was also a good springboard into the sermon today - sometimes the best laid plans don't work out exactly like we'd like them; but in God's world, if we listen and be attentive we will find the place where God is calling us to do God's work.

I invite your comments,


Readings: Acts 16:9-15; Psalm 67; Revelation 21:10, 22-22:5; John 14:23-29
