Welcome

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

We welcome you to our church family! 

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

  • Thursday Bible Study

    Songs are very much at the centre of our celebrations of Advent and Christmas, and have been so for many since childhood.

    Most of the Christmas carols we love have been handed down through generations. When we sing them in carol services once a year, understanding the meaning of the words is always a mystery, but the fact that they are sung is good news!

    Luke’s Gospel has a series of songs as part of his introduction to the story of Jesus, and these have been handed down to us in our Bibles, and as part of the liturgical life of the Church. Many recite (if not sing) the Magnificat (The Song of Mary) and Nunc Dimittis (Song of Simeon), as part of their regular worship, so the words are familiar. But maybe they haven’t been looked at as often in their actual context, leading up to and just beyond the birth of Jesus.  Join us Thursday mornings at 10:30 am to explore these treasured songs as we journey through Advent to Christmas.

    Each week is a new song, so join us any Thursday.

    Nov. 14 Benedictus (Song of Zachariah)                     Luke 1:67-79

    Nov. 21 Magnificat (Song of Mary)                               Luke 1:46-55

    Dec. 5    Gloria in Excelsis Deo (Song of the Angels) Luke 2:9-15

    Dec. 12  Nunc Dimittis (Song of Simeon)                     Luke 2:27b-32
