CELEBRATING 250 YEARS OF FAITH IN JOHNSTOWN, NY
Thank you for visiting our website! St. John’s Episcopal Church is an historical place of worship in the center of downtown Johnstown, New York. Our Sunday Holy Eucharistic is celebrated at 8:00 am and 10:00 am by our Rector, The Rev. Laurie Garramone. The 8:00 am service is spoken while the 10:00 am service includes organ music, hymns and an anthem by the St. John’s Adult Choir. Children's Chapel is held during the 10:00 am service. [Note that the Choir and Children's Chapel are on vacation during the summer months] An informal coffee hour follows the 10:00 am service every Sunday.
Please consider this a heartfelt invitation to visit us at St. John's. Check the announcements and calendar on this page to note the date and time of services or call our church office at (518) 762-9210. We look forward to meeting you!
Got Questions about life and faith? Maybe you have no faith. Maybe you have lots of questions about God, religion and why you are here. Maybe you want to know why there is suffering in the world today. Come to Alpha and bring a friend. There are no wrong questions.
The evening starts at 6 pm at the church with a light dinner, and continues with the program afterwards. Come have dinner. Ask questions. Get answers.
