Past Worship Services
The nursery meets in the Godly Play Classroom #2 on the second floor of the Parish House. Please note that infants and children are welcome at all worship services. Nursery care is available most summer Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to noon for infants and children up to age 3. Please register your children here.
During the program year (September through May), Church School meets on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. on the second floor of the Parish House. For more information, please contact the Rev. Sarah Akes-Cardwell, Associate for Children and Family Ministries.
Sundays at 10:00 a.m. | Early September through early June
In person in the Parish House Conference Room or online via Zoom
An adult Bible Study group meets most Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. We use a hybrid approach with some joining via Zoom and others coming to the Conference Room along with attending either the 9:00 a.m. or 11:00 a.m. worship service. The group is studying the structure, audience, and themes of the Gospel of Luke. Conversations typically explore the connections with the Sunday lectionary lessons and sermons.
To attend the Bible Study class by Zoom, please contact Jack Reiffer, who leads the class, for the link.
First Thursdays at 6:45 p.m. | Online via Zoom
On the first Thursday of each month, the St. John’s Book group meets for a virtual discussion of a different book. Recent titles have included Wholehearted Faith by Rachel Held Evans with Jeff Chu, Go Tell It on the Mountain by James Baldwin, The Door by Magda Szabo, When A Crocodile Eats the Sun: A Memoir of Living in Africa by Peter Godwin, and The Yellow House by Sarah M. Broom.
