We are celebrating "Ordinary Time,"
the long "green season" between
the Day of Pentecost and the Season of Advent!
May it be for us and all the world
an EXTRAORDINARY time!
This summer we are using a new "Celtic" liturgy
to help us celebrate the beauty, goodness, and abundance
of God's creation!

Receiving Communion: All who seek God and a deeper life in Christ are welcome at the Lord’s Table and invited to receive the bread and wine of the Holy Communion.
To receive the bread, please hold your hands out in front of you. To receive the wine, help guide the chalice to your lips. If you prefer, you may dip the bread in the wine and then place it in your mouth. If you do not wish to receive the bread or the wine, you are invited to come forward, cross your hands across your chest, and receive a blessing. (Gluten-free communion wafers are available upon request.)
Home Communion: For those who are home-bound or hospital-bound, one of our Clergy or Eucharistic Visitors would be delighted to bring the Sacrament to YOU! Just let Charlie know.
Ringing the steeple bell is one of the worship traditions at St. John's. After the dismissal and before the postlude, the bell is rung 12 times ~ usually by our youngest worshipers!
