Grace changes us!

Come and be changed as we watch and wait during the first weeks of December.  Share the holy Advent days and nights with St. John’s – disciples, neighbors, friends – in worship, in meals, in gatherings.  Grace finds us.  Come and be found in the celebration of the birth of the Messiah.  Worship, pray, sing, and rejoice with St. John’s on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and the whole Christmas season.
