We come together for worship each Sunday at 10:00 am.
St. John’s celebrates Holy Communion each week and we welcome all people to the Lord’s table, including children. All are welcome to join us for worship.
Online Sunday Worship
While St. John’s building remains closed during the COVID19 pandemic, we hope that you participate in our ongoing ministry online. We have two ways in which you may participate online:
YouTube: Please visit the St. John’s YouTube channel where worship will be streamed live at 10 am on Sundays. You can also view past services.
Zoom: Many of our members gather on Zoom to participate in worship together, watching the YouTube stream together and gathering for fellowship after. The Zoom info is sent out in our weekly emails; sign up below to receive those.
In worship you will find the service and music is projected on the wall as well as printed in the bulletin. Large format bulletins and hearing assistance devices are also available for use each week.
Children & Worship
St. John’s encourages families to worship together. Each week, Pastor Kern provides a children’s sermon as well as invites children of all ages to participate in communion. Quiet activity bags are available for children.
For those who prefer, we provide a staffed nursery from 9:45 am to 11:15 am on Sunday mornings. Our nursery attendants love children, and are background checked. The nursery is intended for children under the age of 5 during worship. There is also a separate quieting room available for feeding infants.
All are welcome to receive Communion including children, toddlers and older. We offer the traditional bread and wine, as well as a grape juice option. Gluten-free bread is also available.
Christmas Eve Services
Each year we hold two Christmas Eve services on December 24. A children and family service is held at 4:00pm designed to last less than one hour. The second service is a traditional Christmas Eve service, and is held at 8:00pm. It is preceded at 7:30pm with a variety of musical selections from St. John’s musical groups. All people, including children and families, are encouraged to join us at either service for worship on Christmas Eve.
Inclement Weather Policy
For the safety of our members, St. John’s closes whenever Montgomery County Public Schools close for inclement weather. If schools are closed, so is the church. If after school activities are canceled, so are afternoon and evening activities at the church.
Closures on Saturday and Sunday will be announced on this site, our Facebook page, and the following stations and their web pages (under weather and closings):
