Want to know more about Episcopalians?

If you are new to the Episcopal Church or just want to know a little more about St. John’s, meet in the parish hall at 9:45 a.m. Sundays for a pre-service “tutorial” (and coffee) with church members.

Periodically we also offer an open house, where members and newcomers gather in an informal environment. It’s a great time to ask questions. You’re also invited to arrange a time to meet with clergy and staff.

Twice each year we offer an Inquirers Class, which explores more deeply what it means to be part of the church.

Becoming a part of a church community is more than belonging to a particular set of persons meeting in a particular building on Sunday. While we here at St. John’s strive to be a worthy representation of the body of Christ in our community, we are aware also of being a part of a lineage, a history and tradition that reaches into antiquity and back again toward the future.

Regardless of your age or membership status, it is good to be more aware of the particular church you choose to be part of and that church’s place in the broader church, to grasp the theological meanings behind church practices, and to wrestle with the great mysteries of faith.

Inquirers classes are an opportunity to spend time in the company of fellow seekers and more deeply explore the nature of this particular community which, though rooted at Asp and Duffy, is a part of a far richer heritage and a more profound expression of God’s grace.

The classes are designed in an open forum, led by The Rev. Dwight N. Helt, rector of St. John's. Discussion is guided to cover a variety of aspects of the church and participants have ample opportunity to ask questions.

Inquirers classes meet each fall and spring, and serve as preparation for confirmation.
