Greeters will welcome and guide you.  And an usher will give you a bulletin to guide you through the service. 

You'll see nearly every style of clothing at St. John's. You can sit in the main section of the church or in the east transept to the right of the altar. Please sit where you feel comfortable.

All are Invited to Communion

Everyone who comes to the altar seeking Christ will be welcomed. This is God's table and Christ is our host at this feast.

The bread used for Holy Eucharist at St. John's is Gluten Free. 

If you are unable to come to the altar for Communion, we have a barrier free station or notify an usher and we will bring Communion to you.
