O God, who by the leading of a star did manifest your only begotten Son to the peoples of the earth: Lead us, who know you by your faith, to your presence, where we may behold your glory face to face; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. Book of Common Prayer, page 162.

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.
