Palm Sunday Procession
Welcome to St. John’s, a parish of the Diocese of Western Michigan in the Episcopal Church. We are a diverse Christian community, following Jesus’ teaching through liturgical worship, transformation in the mind of Christ, and the pursuit of reconciliation and justice in God’s creation. This is summarized by our motto: Worship God. Be Transformed in Christ. Change the World. We encourage you to read our welcoming statement here to find out more about us.
If you are visiting our area, we welcome you to come and worship with us. If you are seeking a church to call home, we would be honored if you would spend some time with us to see if we might be that place for you.
If there is anything about our church that you are having trouble finding on the website, please contact us so we can help.
The Episcopal Church welcomes you!
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL EXTRAVAGANZA!
Register Kids Online Here. Special One-Day VBS Extravaganza! It’s a first, and we need all your support! Prepare for a single day of fun!
JUNE 28th, Main service to approximately 5pm—And it’s FOR ALL KIDS OF EVERY AGE! INTERGENERATIONAL! Kids, Families, Friends, Visitors! LUNCH and DINNER! Games, Crafts, Stories and so much more. .
Think of this as a Church Picnic and VBS combo. Many churches nationwide have canceled their VBS programs with lack of volunteers, kids (due to extremely busy kid and parent schedules) and expense but others have gone to a single day extravaganza and have had a lot of success. The vote was unanimous at our VBS meeting! We will be starting off with a Mustard Seed Sunday, some great gospel music and after service we all will share a meal together… SAVVY will be adding a bake sale fundraiser for Heifer International; we will be inviting Susan Morris back to display more Uganda crafts to help raise funds for a school in Uganda. Then, look out for we will have all the great stories, games, and crafts of a three-day event in one day! There will be something for everyone so come just for family (and friend) fun. Whew…that sounds like a lot. We need you; we need visitors, families, and children to participate. If you would like more information or to join us as a volunteer contact Leslie now!
