Rector's Welcome

Visitors & guests, friends & neighbors, seekers & members:  St. John's offers you greetings of grace and peace!

St. John's is a progressive Episcopal church community committed to claiming and proclaiming Jesus’ gospel of love, justice, and peace. Through ministries of prayerful discipleship, faithful servanthood, and abundant hospitality, together we seek to serve God and embody Christ, filled with Holy Spirit. A gathering of open-minded, open-hearted pilgrims walking in the Way of Jesus, our members have come together from a variety of backgrounds, beliefs, and traditions. We strive to shine a beacon of hope and joy to the world, witnessing by word and deed to the good news that God loves all of the human family, and that all of God’s children deserve compassion, renewal, and true freedom.

Voices of Parishioners

“It is evident that all are welcomed and loved, not only by God, but by the members of the congregation.”

“The open-armed, welcoming inclusiveness is almost palpable.”

“In welcoming all at the communion table, nothing better indicates God’s love for the whole human family…”

“St. John’s thriving to me is that we become a leader in the progressive Christianity movement. Be a magnet by our example. Push the envelope.”
