St. John’s is a community committed to worship.

We worship in song. We worship in spirit. We worship in our actions.

We invite you to come worship with us.

The Centrality of Worship

Fed with History

by Rev. Frank Honeycutt

Worship assistant schedule: October-December 2017

St. John’s music goals:

  1. Have Service Music reflect the Church Season. Soon we will start using Setting Ten for the rest of Pentecost (205 for the Gospel Acclamation, #207 for the Sanctus, a nd #208 following The Lord’s prayer). The tunes are familiar i.e. #205 is the same tune as #533, Unser Herrscher.

  2. Sing the Psalms. We will explore several ways to sing Psalms and the Choir will be our leader as we get used to singing the Psalms once again.

  3. Encourage children, youth, and adults to participate in their own way - either singing, playing an instrument or creating music.

  4. Develop a list of each person’s favorite hymn(s) . Make/sign a list and give to me or put in my mailbox. Bonus points if you have a story to go along with it.


"I will sing a new song to You, O God; upon a harp, an instrument of ten strings, will I offer praises to You.”  Psalm 144: 9

“O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker [in reverent praise and supplication].”  Psalm 95: 6

“I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, well-pleasing to God, which is your spiritual service of worship." (Rom. 12:1)
