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 the Epiphany Season, we commemorate Jesus' Baptism in the river Jordan. During January, February, and March we focus on the importance of water in Caring for Creation.

 

Quotation for your Meditation:

“There is no such thing as a ‘human community’ without earth, soil, air, water and all living forms. Without these, humans do not exist. There is, therefore no separate human community. Humans are woven into this larger community, which is the Sacred Earth Community.”   ~ Thomas Berry

Suggestions for Personal Action:

How many times a day, or a week, or a month do you flush a toilet in your house? How many times do you turn on a faucet? a clothes washer?, a dish washer? We do not think about water very much. It is just there like the air we breathe. Only when something goes wrong do we think about how dependent our lives are on it. Consult this website https://learn.eartheasy.com/guides/45-ways-to-conserve-water-in-the-home-and-yard/) for 45 different ways to conserve water inside and outside your home.
