Announcements about services at St. John’s

What comes after Christmas? Epiphany of Course!

On Sunday, January 4 at both services we will hear the “three kings Gospel” and sing accompanying carols. On Tuesday, January 6, at 7:00 p.m. a Eucharist called, “Manifesting Divinity” will be offered. This alternative service for the Feast of the Epiphany will begin in darkness and feature handheld candles.

A Eucharist for Thanksgiving:

Celtic Style, Tuesday, November 25 at 7:00 p.m.
All are invited to a celebration of the Eucharist using Celtic prayers, chants and readings to offer God thanks and praise for life. We will make Eucharist together, practice gratitude and “thanks-living” and then enjoy our own simple hospitality. Bring a finger food snack and/or festive beverage to party following the service.
