Welcome to St. John's!
During this extraordinary season, health precautions due to the coronavirus have shifted our primary worship service online -- every Sunday at 10:00a.m. -- to take part contact the parish office by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (215-947-3212) by the prior Thursday. For updates about in person opportunities, church announcements, and outreach ministries, just ask to be added to our email list.
What we believe
We believe in the one God who is the Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier.
While our faith is based in scripture,
we understand scripture through tradition and reason. That 'reason' component means there can be a wide diversity of opinion among members of the church. However, we come together in worship through Christ.
There are various areas in which
your gifts would be most welcome.
Worship-related ministries include
preparing the altar, arranging the flowers, singing, reading lessons, ushering, and serving on the altar.
Your talents are welcome both in and outside of worship. We are currently working to expand our outreach, and we are open to creating new ministries that would make the best use of the gifts that you bring to St. John's.
Sunday school is held during the school year, with children processing to class after the opening hymn and rejoining the service at the passing of the peace. Children are always welcome in worship and once each month we celebrate an all-age service designed with the comfort of young and old in mind.
Our rector is the Reverend Eric Bond.
Our organist is Alan Patterson.
Our layleaders, known as the vestry, are elected by the congregation at our annual parish meeting. Currently serving are Kimberly Sykes, Gray Safford, Bill Ruckh, Dave Slowik, Shane Lavallie, and Elizabeth Nettleton.
