Stewardship Pathway ‘Spirit of Abundance’
This is the season of Stewardship at St. John’s. We will be hearing testimonials from parishioners on Oct. 26 and will celebrate the abundance of our God-given gifts on Commitment Sunday, November 9th. “For all things come from you O Lord, and of thy own have we given thee”. 1Chronicles 29:14

A generous parishioner has offered to purchase 20 new kneelers. We are looking for other parishioners to match this gift with the ultimate goal of replacing all the kneelers in the church. Each one costs $57.00. You may purchase one, two or as many as you can afford. All contributions will be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please call Sandie DeFilippis in the Parish Office at 203-348-2619 ext. 10.

St. John’s Mission StatementTo Live the Love of God with hearts open to all, strengthened by joyful worship, inspired by the Holy Spirit and dedicated to serving Christ in the world.

St. John’s Vision StatementSt. John’s is a dynamic, multi-generational and multi-ethnic church growing by creatively seeking out and embracing youth and young adults as well as those seeking a welcoming, inclusive place of worship; guided by strong leadership; focused on effective communications, and committed to enhancing our existing ministries.

Parish life -At St. John’s, we endeavor to nourish individual spiritual growth through worship, the sacraments, education, healing services, fellowship, and group Bible study.

Women’s and men’s Saturday morning breakfasts bring parishioners together on a regular basis and are led by laypersons; quiet days and retreats offer opportunities for reflection; while flower delivery to shut-ins, the altar guild and numerous committees provide avenues for involvement.

St. John’s is a tolerant parish. The “St. John’s way” is to allow for virtually every shade of opinion within our parish. It is expected that parishioners will express any concerns to the clergy or to Wardens or members of the vestry so that matters may be handled with Christian care and compassion. If common ground cannot be found, we simply agree to disagree and move on.

St. John’s is in the Connecticut Diocese, Province One, of the Episcopal Church, USA and follows the rubrics concerning church policies. We support the diocese financially according to the standards set by the diocesan convention and maintain cordial relations with the diocese.
