Second Saturday Contemplative Services Return February 9 St. John’s will offer Saturday evening services the second Saturday of each month at 5:30 p.m. Each service will include Holy Eucharist, contemplative music, a quiet, candlelit atmosphere, and the rite of healing. We hope that you will find this to be a relaxing supplement to your Sunday morning worship. Please consider inviting friends who prefer a more contemplative form of worship in the early evening.
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.
Centering Prayeron Wednesdays In response to the positive feedback from those who attended our Advent series, we will continue to offer Centering Prayer in the choir room in the Parish House on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. Please consider this gentle practice as a way to create space to receive the light of Christ during the season of Epiphany.
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.
