10:50 am Sunday Worship Service
Continuing St. John’s commitment to worship at the heart of all ministry, we gather at 10:50 every Sunday in our glorious 1907 sanctuary at the corner of Peabody and Bellevue, where generations have and will continue to be the church. For us, tradition is “alive.” This service, "a come as you are" event, includes the leadership of ministers, elders, ushers, and musicians—both instrumentalists and choirs. Surrounded by the richness and beauty of sight, sound and symbol, this service continues the Methodist tradition’s central focus on Word and Sacrament in worship. Worship includes the celebration of Holy Communion on the first and third Sundays of each month. No matter where you are, we are here.
It is an exciting time at St. John's with brand new curriculum at all levels! All classes begin at 9:30am.
