A Message from our Rector Bill Taylor in response to COVID-19
Hello to all!
I am so pleased that you found our website. If you are exploring places of worship for you and your family, I invite you to become part of our family here at St. John’s. I hope you will discover St. John’s is a Christ-centered Sacramental Community witnessing God’s love for all people through worship, education, stewardship, outreach, and pastoral care. We follow all Episcopal Prayer Book services, including Morning and Evening Prayer for special services and when I (the Rector) may be away.
We, like all folks around the world, are hit hard by this Corona-virus virtually closing the church for all activities since March 16th. But I am pleased to report that we are now re-gathering in the Church with the use of masks, social distancing and other means of protection until we have an assurance of safety.
The Episcopal Church is an incarnational Church where Christ is found in each one of us, so gathering together in close proximity with one another is important to us. However, what is most important to us it that we all stay well. So with the guided and inspired wisdom of our Bishop we will be re-gathering in this way until further notice. Please know that we continue to be in contact with all of our parishioners and friends through virtual means, ie. Facebook, YouTube, e-mail, and telephone, as well as through our prayers. Follow us on Facebook and ask to join us on our group page after answering a few simple questions. Services can be seen on YouTube and Facebook on Sundays at 10:30 AM. We hope to have our 8:00 AM Service back soon.
You are important to us and we look forward to having the opportunity to meet you. Please join us at one of our worship services or at any of the activities on our calendar when the time is appropriate. I know you will find a warm and welcoming congregation that is eager to have you call St. John’s your church home. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to call or email us.
May God bless you, make his face shine upon you and give you peace this day and always.
Bill Taylor Rector
