Holy Week Services at St. John

All are welcome to worship with the St. John community:

On Good Friday (April 19), noon until 3, the worship space will be open for a self-guided walk through the 14 Biblical Stations of the Cross as identified by Pope John Paul II in 1991.

At 7:00 p.m. on Good Friday there will be a Tenebrae Service of Shadows, where 14 candles will be extinguished one by one as together we hear and respond to the account of Jesus’ Passion–his betrayal, arrest, trial, suffering, and death on the cross–as recorded in John’s Gospel.

Finally, on Easter Sunday (April 21), we will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus with two services, 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. The former is more traditional, with organ and a full liturgy, as well as a brass quintet for Easter. The latter is more casual, with piano led worship. In between services there will be an Easter Egg Hunt for the little ones led by our youth.

Come join us as we reflect together and celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the life of the world!

How would you like your home blessed?

A Home Blessing is a wonderful way to welcome and invite God into your home, whether a new or long time resident, whether a house, an apartment or mobile home.  The blessing usually involves  prayer, lighting a candle, Bible readings and moving from room to room to bless various areas of your home.

Pastor Paul enjoys providing this service to folk, whether a member of St. John or a neighbor in our wider community.  Just call the church office at 426-5751, x100 to set up a time and/or learn more.
