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. 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!
St. John's will offer prayers in the community by setting up a Prayer Table in front of the church beginning on Wed., August 27th at 9 am. Our Prayer Table will coincide with the first hour of the Food Panty hours and will offer confidential prayer or other pastoral needs. It is available to everyone, rain or shine. Stop by for prayer or volunteer for this important community ministry.
Next Party: August 27, 2014. Every Wednesday all skill levels are welcome to help work on simple repairs of One Church Street (formerly the Y Building). Our task is to prepare the first floor to house the church offices! We need many willing hands to help.

Our start time is always 7:00 p.m. and we will end by 9:00 p.m. or earlier. We meet at One Church Street. All skill levels are welcome to volunteer!
