How We Worship

Episcopalians are not bound by a set of dogmas, we are instead brought together by our common worship of God the Father through Christ the Son in the unity of God the Holy Spirit.  Therefore, how we worship together is very important to us.  The best way to find out how we worship is to join us for our traditional service on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am.  However, if you want a small taste from the comfort of your computer chair, check out the text of our worship service at the link at the bottom of this page.

At St. John’s, our Sunday morning worship service leans a little what Episcopalians call “High Church.”  That means that there are many older traditions used such as ancient garments, chanting, and traditional music.  Our seasonal evening service is much more informal, usually has between three and ten people, and can be more conversational in tone.  All of our services celebrate Holy Communion, a remembrance ritual where are united in community by sharing in the Last Supper.

The Holy Eucharist
This is one of our common liturgies for Holy Communion. There are several others within the prayer book.
