Welcome to the St. Johns' Episcopal Church website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. St. Johns has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.
Please note these upcoming events:
19 March ~ III Lent ~ Holy Communion at 9. The Rev’d Dale Boston, a Hospice chaplain, will be with us at 5 PM for a simple Lenten supper. The church will provide clear soup, clear water-based drinks, and bread ~ “simple, but such as pilgrims need” in this holy season. After supper, Chaplain Boston will explore with us how prayer helps us to access God’s resources in the most difficult times of our lives.
26 March ~ IV Lent ~ Holy Communion at 9. At 5 PM we will join our brothers and sisters at St. Paul’s, Logan for another simple Lenten supper. Mr. Jeff Hurdley, Esq (ret!), who is in the Diaconal discernment program for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Columbus, will lead us to consider God’s will for our healing and wholeness, and to explore how we might receive those blessings.
2 April ~ V Lent ~ Following the 9 AM Holy Communion, we will gather in the undercroft for our monthly parish fellowship breakfast.
9 April ~ Palm Sunday ~ Our 9 AM Holy Communion will begin with the blessing of the Palms, by which we celebrate the Kingly entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem and the beginning of Holy Week. As we move towards Holy Communion, we will consider what Jesus did for us as we hear together the Passion Gospel.
13 April ~ Maundy Thursday. Join us at 7:30 PM as we gather to commemorate the Last Supper of Jesus and the institution of Holy Communion. The same service will be offered at St. Paul’s in Logan at 5:30.
14 April ~ Good Friday ~ We gather as God’s people to watch at the cross at noon. The Liturgy will be offered at both St. John’s and St. Paul’s. Stations of the Cross will follow for those who are able to stay beyond 1 PM.
16 April ~ Easter! Christ is Risen, Alleluia! ~ A sung festival Eucharist will be offered by Fr. Pursley at St. John’s at 9 AM. Fr. McCleery will preach and officiate at St. Paul’s in Logan at 10:45.
