Worship is central to the life of our community. It is the reason we exist. For almost 250 years the people of St. John’s have maintained a rhythm of worship and praise of God. At our best, we are an oasis of God’s love in a confused world, a beacon of Christ’s light within our city, a dwelling place for the Kingdom of God. It is our worship life together as the body of Christ that undergirds us, that gives strength and meaning to all of our church activities. If we do nothing else, it is our highest calling to gather together in praise and thanksgiving to the God who gives us life.
Jesus promised that whenever two or three are gathered together in his name that he will be in the midst of them. Everyone is invited and welcome to come and gather at St. John’s as we worship in the name of Christ.
