There are many ways to serve the Lord at Saint John’s Church. We encourage our congregation to participate in serving others, and we hope each visitor will see and experience our heartfelt passion for serving others.
Order of Saint Luke
Saint Luke was one of four evangelists in the New Testament, and many scholars believe he was a Greek physician who lived in Antioch, located in Ancient Syria. He is also referred to as “the physician of the soul” because his Gospel focuses on the marginalized populations, including women, the poor and sick. This ministry allows our members to join and pray intercessory prayers for those in need of healing.
Our building has excellent reverberation qualities, and our church members enjoy the sounds from both the organ and our choir. Hymns from our 1982 Hymnal, as well as pieces selected by our Organist / Choirmaster, are chosen weekly to provide a more joyful sound to the Lord. Do you have a heart for singing, and want to share that with our congregation?
Acolytes and Lay Readers
Acolytes, also referred to as torchbearers, are the service participants who carry the crosses, candles, and other items in procession, and who help in a number of important ways throughout the service. Becoming an acolyte is a great way to get involved and to learn more about Episcopal worship. Lay readers are a dedicated group of men and women who volunteer to assist in our worship service. They are lay persons licensed by the bishop to lead public worship under the direction of the member of the clergy in charge of the congregation.
