Mr. Rogers Sunday – Feb 12 at 9 & 11
It will be a beautiful day in the neighborhood on Sunday, February 12th at St. John’s, Georgetown. Join us at either 9:00 or 11:00 for one of our special Theme Sundays when we use the stories and songs that people know to tell the stories of God. We’ll have a fun coffee-hour after each service with Mr. Rogers cookies, treats, and opportunities to practice being a good neighbor. Bring a friend and we’ll see you in the Neighborhood of Make Believe! We’re glad to have you as our neighbor!
Sundays at St. John’s
We have two services on Sundays – 9:00 am and 11:00 am. The 9:00 service is informal and relaxed, with simple music led by a cantor. The service is shorter than our later service (about 45-50 minutes), and culminates with Communion around our low altar “family-style,” where we pass the bread to one another. It is a simple, very family-friendly service.
Our 11:00 service is more traditional (but never stuffy!) with our full choir, which is truly one of the best in the city. At both services you will find a warm, friendly congregation happy to welcome you, and hear excellent preaching that connects the stories of our faith with the concerns of our modern lives. Children are always welcome in church, and we also have childcare in our atrium from 8:30-12:00. Join us! Be you. Be here. Belong.
We are always praying, and are here to pray for and with you. Even during times of great anxiety and concern – here and around the world – know that our prayers are with you, and that God is still at work in the world. If you would like to send in a prayer request, click here, or on the “Prayer Request” image and we will get our prayer team on it! And if you need some help or support, please feel free to call the office, and our phone system will patch you through to one of us.
Helping others is another great way to engage with your faith and with the community. St. Theresa of Avila reminds us that God has no hands on earth now but our’s. Click here or the button below to connect with folks who can help connect what you have to offer with what others might need!
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.

After joining our parish, St.John’s guided and inspired me to become more involved with organizations serving our community.
(Our) family has received God’s blessing in many ways for our tenure at Old St. Johns. We pray all members of our beautiful parish be equally blest.
