All Covid-19 relation worship restrictions have been lifted in the Diocese of Massachusetts. Mask wearing is optional.
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 July and August we focus on the importance of energy/sun in our Caring for Creation section. Simultaneously, the season of Pentecost reminds us that the Spirit blows where it will. The Spirit sustains all that is true, good and beautiful wherever it may be found and by whomever it may be done. On Pentecost tongues of flame appeared above the heads of the disciples representing internal change.
Quotation for your Meditation
“It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth and in the contemplation of her beauties to know the sense of wonder and humility.”
"The most alarming of all man's assaults upon the environment is the contamination of air, earth, rivers, and sea with dangerous and even lethal materials."
"We still talk in terms of conquest. We still haven't become mature enough to think of ourselves as only a tiny part of a vast and incredible universe."
