Advent & Christmas at St. John’s

God is on the move at St. John’s. Our pews are full, and our hearts are, too. For many, Advent and Christmas are a time of pure joy, and for others it can be a season of stress. Wherever you find yourself in that continuum, let St. John’s be your refuge and haven this year. Below you will find a schedule for all our Advent and Christmas offerings. Come soak up God’s grace as we prepare to welcome the King. You’ll be glad you did.
