Update: April 16, 2021: We are hopeful that we can return to a limited in-house Sunday morning worship service in June, 2021. Dates, times and special instructions will be announced as we get closer to June. A spike in the COVID-19 virus could affect this, so keep watching. These services will be recorded and the audio available here later on Sundays for those not comfortable to returning to a group setting yet.
Important Note for Members & Visitors: Many of the pages on this website concerning worship, choirs, groups and activities reflect how this was done at St. John’s prior to the start of the COVID-19 pandemic before March, 2020, and also we are hopeful that we will resume these activities as listed in the future. If you have any questions about the status of any activity listed on this website, please contact the church office. Thank you! UPDATE: St. John’s building remains closed for in-person worship & most activities, continuing for an indefinite time after that until we are certain we can safely reopen with new safety regulations in place. We are anticipating indoor worship in a limited form in early June – check our publications for updates. Please know that our staff is meeting online to study all options as to when and how to reopen, with the personal safety of everyone involved as our top priority!
