The Book of Common Prayer states “the ministry of lay persons is to represent Christ and his Church; to bear witness to him wherever they may be; and, according to the gifts given them, to carry on Christ’s work of reconciliation in the world; and to take their place in the life, worship and governance of the Church.” The duty of all Christians is to follow Christ; to come together week by week for worship; and to work, pray, and give for the spread of the kingdom of God.
Join Us Saturday, August 11, for Our Final Summer Saturday Contemplative Service: During the summer, St. John’s offers a service the second Saturday of each month at 5:30 p.m. The service includes Holy Eucharist, contemplative music, a quiet, candlelit atmosphere, and the rite of healing, as a relaxing supplement to your Sunday morning worship. Please invite friends who prefer contemplative worship in the early evening. Our final service for this season is on August 11. Everyone is welcome; no exceptions.
Prayers at the Colonial Altar: Approach the Colonial altar after receiving communion for personal intentions with a prayer minister. Available at every church service.
The St. John’s Prayer Group meets weekly on Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. in the Keeper’s Cottage. To be a part of this group, simply drop by.
St. John’s Worship Ministry The Worship Ministry’s goal is to provide an enriched, spiritually nourishing worship experience, bringing people closer to God. Parishioners have many opportunities to support the Worship Ministry such as serving on the Altar Guild; participation in services as a Lay Reader or Lay Eucharistic Minister; Ushers; Greeters.
Serve During the Church Service Lay Eucharistic ministers, acolytes, and ushers are essential to our worship services, and there is no time commitment outside of the Sunday service you already attend. We encourage our young members, ages 8 and up, to become acolytes. We will hold training sessions after the 10:00 a.m. service on the following Sundays. Please contact Amelie or August Butler at email@example.com if you are interested.
