As we return to our full rhythm of congregational life post-pandemic and in our 150th year, we are delighted to revive yet another tradition that knits us together in fellowship as a community: Koinonia! Koinonia Dinner Groups draw on the old Christian and St. John’s tradition of breaking bread together to build friendship and fellowship in community.[Read more…] about Koinonia Returns!
The former “Alleluia Choir” is rebranded and will sing at 9:00 am services.
Children that used to sing (pre-COVID) with the intergenerational Alleluia Choir at 9:00 services have now been brought into St. John’s Choristers program. The choir that will sing for the newly reinstated 9:00 am service has thus been rebranded as The St. John’s Singers.
This choir will be open to college and high school (grades 9-12) students as well as adults. The music will be less challenging than that of the St John’s Choir, and will not require as many singers nor as many voice parts. Rehearsals will be held on Wednesday nights at 7:30 in the choir room, but for those who can’t make the weekday rehearsal, there will be also be a rehearsal on Sunday morning at 8:00 am on the days the Singers perform.[Read more…] about Introducing “The St. John’s Singers”
