We are a welcoming community for all, doing the Lord's work! Come and join us!


O God,  who for our redemption gave your only-begotten Son to the death of the cross, and by his glorious resurrection delivered us from the power of our enemy: Grant us so to die daily to sin, that we may evermore live with him in the joy of his resurrection, through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. 

Book of Common Prayer, page 222

St. John's in the News 

St. John's Church is featured on a new poster by Tom Rivers, The Doors of Medina. Last year the church was included in a new book, History of Sandstone in Orleans County, NY by author Jim Friday.  Published in 2021, the book gives a number of examples of local buildings, including our own, described as having "charm and historical significance." Our doorway is also featured on a postcard, available for purchase at The Author's Note on Main Street.

    Partnership Worship 

Since March 2020, hundreds of people across the partnership have gathered for online worship on Sunday mornings. A half-hour worship service continues to be offered on Sundays at 9 a.m. The format is a Zoom Meeting, which means participants can choose to have their cameras and microphones on to see and speak with one another. Preachers and worship leaders will be chosen from across the partnership. Once a month, the service will focus on prayers for reconciliation and healing.
