Adam Trambley at St. John's Episcopal Church preaching with mask August 2020

Worship is at the center of our life at St. John’s. The goal of our worship life is to help people come into a deeper encounter with God. Every week we gather to hear scripture, to offer prayers, and to break bread together. Grounded in the Book of Common Prayer, our liturgy aims to be Spirit-filled, inspiring and welcoming. While some would describe our worship as traditional, we appreciate laughter and the sound of children’s voices. We are also not afraid of the sound of silence.
