What’s Happening:

Be you. Be here. Belong.

Join us on Sundays at 9:00 and 11:00

Join us on Sundays 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, 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!

Their program here will include music from their Winter and Christmas albums, selected for versatility and the diverse musical expression central to the ensemble’s performance ethos. Join us for their stunning performance by candlelight—an evening not to be missed!
 
“The singing of VOCES8 is impeccable in its quality of tone and balance. They bring a new dimension to the word ‘ensemble’ with meticulous timing and tuning.” –Gramophone

Family Activities in Advent and Christmas!

Make an Advent Wreath for your family on Sunday, December 1st, and light one more candle each week as we get closer to Christmas! Then don’t miss our beloved Lessons & Carols service (and party with activities for kids of all ages) on December 8th. We also have available a fantastic family devotion packet for Advent from the creative geniuses at Illustrated Children’s Ministry. Pick up your Advent Family Devotion pack at St. John’s, and enjoy a season of activities designed to bring you closer together as a family, and closer to God. Our Christmas Pageant (4:00 on Christmas Eve) is also for kids of all ages, and we welcome all costumes! Past year’s pageants have included Hans Solo, Spiderman, an astronaut, and animals of ALL kinds (including a puppy dressed as a sheep!). We really mean that ALL are welcome!
