Be you. Be here. Belong.
Join us on Sunday at 9 or 11:00 am
Join us on Sunday at 9:00 and 11:00 for a glorious morning of church! Our 9:00 service is a shorter, more casual service with a shorter sermon, easy-to-sing music, and “family-style” Communion! Kids are always welcome at St. John’s (we really mean that!), but the 9:00 service is especially family friendly. We also have warm, friendly childcare in our beautiful atrium from 8:30 to 12:30 if you (or your children) would prefer.
Our 11:00 service is a bit more formal (though never stuffy!), with a full choir and glorious music from one of the best choirs in Washington, DC. No matter which service you choose, you’ll find friendly folks to greet you and help you find the sacred in this joyful place. Come and see!
Sunday, Feb 2 at 11:00 – Jazz Service
”Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone,” (New York Times) identical twins Peter & Will Anderson have headlined the Blue Note, Kennedy Center, and New Orleans Jazz Festival, playing “with a passion, unpredictability, and sense of discovery.” (All About Jazz) The Andersons were baptized at St. John’s and are Juilliard School of Music grads, have played on GRAMMY winning recordings, and toured to the U.K., South America, and Japan. This is their exciting third appearance at St. John’s! Join us for a glorious Jazz Mass! You’ll be glad you did!
On Sunday, February 9th, we can tell you how to get to Sesame Street! For one Sunday only, 3240 O Street (otherwise known as St. John’s, Georgetown) will be the place to be! You’ll friend friendly neighbors there, and Sesame Street songs and decorations and costumes and a photo booth, and even Oscar the Grouch would love it! For 50 years, Sesame Street has been a place where the everyone is welcome, everyone matters, and even the air is sweet! In church people speak, it is none other than the Kingdom of God! Join us for a fun-and song-filled morning! Wear a costume (or your Sesame Street jammies!), bring your Sesame Street friends, bring your friendly neighbors, your grouchy neighbors, and come and play, everything’s A-OK!
Chanticleer – Feb 23rd at 5:00 pm
Marking their 42nd season, Chanticleer presents “Trade Winds,” a program celebrating ocean voyaging and exotic climes, for their fourth appearance at St. Johns. Called “the world’s reigning male chorus” by the New Yorker, and named the 2008 Ensemble of the Year by Musical America, the Grammy-winning ensemble is based in San Francisco, where the Chronicle praises their “tonal luxuriance and crisply etched clarity.” Known around the world as “an orchestra of voices,” the group seamlessly blends twelve voices ranging from soprano to bass, in original interpretations of vocal literature from Renaissance to jazz, gospel, and adventurous new music.

At St. John’s, we do Mission… It’s about feeding our at-risk neighbors with Grate Patrol or Saturday Suppers, supplying space for neighborhood organizations, or providing pastoral care… It’s about loving like Jesus… by being WITH others.
