St. John’s Church is an Anglican/Episcopal, Christian community worshipping through the power of the Holy Spirit for over 200 years.

St. John’s is much more than a Sunday morning worship experience. It is a family that worships, prays, serves, studies, and has fun together and we invite you to join us in making our family, your family.

If you do not have a church home and would like to make St. John’s your parish of choice; or have a need our church family can help with,  please contact our Parish Administrator, Jeannette, at the church office (315) 393-5470

  • Bible Study - Thursdays at 10:30 am starting September 14th

    Bible Study meets on Thursdays at 10:30 am in the Parish Hall. 

    This Fall we are reading the books of Ruth and Esther -- we will discuss chapter 2 of Ruth when we meet on September 21st.

    As we have in the past we will follow the Lectio Divina approach to the reading: Read first and consider what word or phrase stands out for you. Read again and consider what questions the reading brings to mind. Read again and ask what emotion the reading stirs in you.  We will also use the Forward Movement's "Good Book Club" guide to Ruth and Esther.

    All are welcome to join us for Bible Study at 10:30 am or begin the morning by attending our Eucharist service in the Chapel at 9:30 am.

  • Moving Forward - Parish Sustainability

    At our annual meeting this past February, the parish family determined that given our current financial situation we would commit this year to coming up with a sustainable path forward.  To that end, the vestry has written a charter, (a  document that states our mission, goals, and objectives) to for us to realistically look at our options.  The charter provides focus and helps tune the message for everyone in the parish and the larger community.

    See the Parish Sustainability tab in the Navigation Bar for detailed information as we move forward.

     The next meeting is schedule for Tuesday, September 26th at 6:30 pm in the Parish Hall.  This is a PARISH meeting and all are invited to attend.
