Welcome to St. John Chrysostom! St. John’s is an Episcopal community intentionally striving to be loving, open and drawn together in the love of Christ. We hope you will worship at St. John’s and consider us your church home. You will be among friends. Fr. Tim
Visiting a new church may feel awkward and we know it might be difficult to walk through the door the first time. However, all who enter are welcome. We hope our bulletins help guide you through worship and we are happy to answer any questions you may have. You may see some people stand or kneel during the service — please do whatever is comfortable for you.
Below are some frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact us or talk with the priest or a greeter when you visit.
When are services?
Summer Sunday worship is at 9:00am. Please check home page for any special schedules!
Most Thursdays feature worship during Bible Study from 9:30-11:00am
What about the bread and wine?
We use wine during Communion and a gluten-free wafer is also available. You may choose to receive both or either of these, or a blessing from the priest at the altar rail instead. We usually begin by listening to scripture readings and prayer, then gather around God’s table, sharing Holy Communion. All, and we mean ALL are welcome at Christ’s table. The gifts of God are free and for you. You need not be an Episcopalian to receive the bread and wine… And remember, ALL are welcome to share in this bread of life and cup of salvation.
What should I wear?
Please wear whatever makes you comfortable! We are a fairly casual community – you’ll see a lot of orange if the Broncos are playing, and shorts in the summer time!
How do I find St. John’s?
SJC is in the Applewood area of unincorporated Jefferson County, located in a quiet neighborhood setting with abundant wildlife. Near Manning and Maple Grove Schools, the church is just off Exit #264 on I-70 at 13151 West 28th Avenue, Golden, CO. Please click here for driving directions to the church.
What about children?
Children are always welcome at both the 8:00am and 10:30am Sunday services. We also offer “2nd Sunday School” between services at 9:15am in the chapel on the second Sunday of each month during the school year.
What does the Episcopal Church believe?
Much of what we believe can be found in our Baptismal Covenant. Here it is in part:
I will proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ…
I will seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving my neighbor as myself…
I will strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being…
St. John’s is accessible with reserved handicap parking in front, a ramp to the main church entrance and accessible restrooms. Please let us know if you have any specific questions. We want you to feel at ease and welcome.
