Worship happens in many ways and at many times at St. John’s. We believe in the diversity of worship should reflect the diversity of the congregation. This is just one of the many ways we embrace difference!
Taizé Prayer is a participatory worship experience filled with song, scripture, meditation and prayer. Traditional Taizé songs accompany a wind and strings ensemble to set the tone. Silent meditation lasts 15 minutes. Please join us the first Sunday of the month at 7:30pm at the conservatory.
Thursday Morning Contemplative Worship
Seasonally, Contemplative Worship offers a 30 minute simple worship service. Candle lighting, prayer, poetry and the best YouTube has to offer for contemplative music set the tone before 10 minutes of silence. Most worshipers tend to stick around for a check-in afterwards, always ending by 9am. This worship always happens by zoom. Please join us most Thursdays at 8am.
Special Worship Services
Numerous times throughout the year, we celebrate Christian traditions on days that other than Sunday. Often we share these worship services with other churches, sometimes ecumenically and sometimes with other United Churches.
