  • You can Come to Church Again!!

    Effective June 7th, Gov. Cuomo is allowing houses of worship to open at 25% building capacity, which, at St. John's, means that up to 60 people can attend a single church service.

    • Services on Sundays are at 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
    • Wednesday services are at noon.

    Drive-by Communion willcontinue to be available on from 10:15 - 10:45 a.m. each Sunday at this time, or you can choose to make an appointment for 'Porch Church' with Mother Laurie instead.
    Please note the requirements for attending church in person:

    • Masks are required
    • Social Distancing must be maintained (you'll see how we manage that in church when you arrive)

  • Service of Compline, 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays

    Compline is the final prayer service of the day and it means "completion", which refers to the end of the day. It is a brief and comforting service that anyone can say at home on their own, but we thought it would be especially comforting to say it together if possible during our time of self-isolation.  You can use the Book of Common Prayer at home if you have one and turn to page 127, or the pdf of Compline is found here.

    The service will be braodcast using Facebook Live on Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. You DO NOT need a facebook page to access this since St. John's has a public page. To connect to the facebook page, click here:
    St. John's Facebook page

    Simply add your prayer requests during the service by submitting it to the Comments section at the bottom of the live stream. We can then add your concerns and thanksgivings to that evening's service.
