Welcome

St. John’s is a passionate community of faith and we welcome all to come and worship—whether regular or prospective members, persons seeking a moment of solitude, or visitors to Sandwich looking for a weekend service.

Our Mission:  St. John’s is a community called by Christ to grow spiritually and make known God’s love through word and deed in our congregation and in the broader world.

Our Vision:   We do this through:

Worship:  We give thanks and praise to God, who is known to us in Word and Sacrament.

Formation:  We are a community committed to lifelong Christian development, offering opportunities for formation and fellowship for persons of all ages.

Service:  We care for one another in this congregation, and commit to outreach to the broader community.

CARING FOR CREATION

 During April, May, and June we focus on the importance of earth/soil in our Caring for Creation section. During the season of Pentecost we remind ourselves that the Spirit blows where it will. The Spirit sustains all that is true and good and beautiful wherever it may be found and by whomever it may be done.

 

Quotation for your Meditation

“Teach your children what we have taught our children – that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons and daughters of the earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves. This we know. The earth doesn’t belong to us, we belong to the earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons and daughters of the earth. We do not weave the web of life, we are merely a strand in it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.”
