Blessing of the Animals
We will celebrate the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi on the first Saturday in October – 9:00am, Oct. 7, 2017. All are invited to this short outdoor service with music and prayer, followed by coffee, juice and treats. For the safety of all, please restrain all animals on leashes or in their carriers/containers. If you can’t bring your pet, you are invited to bring a picture instead to be honored as part of God’s creative work in the world.
St. Francis of Assisi is best perhaps known as the patron saint of nature and the environment, with many legends that sprang up after his death dealing with his love for animals. Francis believed that the world was created good and beautiful by God but claimed that it is the duty of humanity to both protect and enjoy nature as stewards of God’s creation. In the event of inclement weather we will meet inside.
Sunday Youth & Children’s Education
“2nd Sunday School” class is held for all ages at 10:15am on the second Sunday each month during the year. All children are always welcome at services!
Sunday Adult Christian Development
How does the Bible – the living Word of God – impact our lives, our relationships with God and each other? All are welcome and invited, so grab a cup of coffee and join fellow seekers in the church library beginning at 8:00am for a deeper study on God’s word, September to May. Guests are always welcome!
Various programs are offered seasonally on Wednesday evenings 6:00-8:00pm during the year including Bible studies or book discussions. During Advent and Lent we gather for a simple Eucharist, soup supper, reflection and teaching.
Weekly at 9:30am, a small Eucharistic gathering includes discussion and conversation. Everyone is invited to meet in the Parish Library.
Christmas Food Boxes
As is the tradition at SJC, we will fill 100 boxes each with $25 worth of groceries – complete fixings for a holiday meal! You may contribute by cash, check or PayPal. Please mark your check with “Food Boxes”, or if you give cash, put it in an envelope and designated it as “Food Boxes.” This is a wonderful way to share the opportunity for giving with your family and friends, near and far!
Join the fun as we spend a June weekend in the mountains. Some may rough it in tents, while other sites have the necessary RV hookups. There are activities for all ages: hiking, swimming, mini-golf, horseback riding, or just relaxing!
Come make a joyful noise! All voices and musicians are welcome to join in. For more information, please introduce yourself to one of the music team after any Sunday service.
In addition to many active ministries within the church, St. John Chrysostom Episcopal Church participates in a variety of outreach ministries including financial support of local and international ministries, Family Promise dinners, food boxes at Christmas, Denver’s St. Francis Center, 32nd Avenue Jubilee Center, Adopt-A-Road cleanup of West 32nd Avenue and The Action Center.
Women in the Spirit (WITS)
The women’s group usually meets the first Saturday of each month at 8:00am in the parish hall for fellowship, music and prayer. Please bring a breakfast dish to share and hear encouraging stories from other women.
