Activities & Events

Please see  upcoming events on home page and SJC’s current Ministry & Event Calendar for ongoing and special schedules.

Super Sundays – Special Events for all ages

Our monthly special events, meals or inter-generational teaching, usually on the second Sunday each month (and occasional Saturday), are on hold during COVID-19. Please see the home page for special schedules!


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. These are on hold during COVID-19…


Weekly at 10:00am, a small online ZOOM gathering includes discussion and conversation. How does the Bible – the living Word of God – impact our lives, our relationships with God and each other? Everyone is welcome and invited to join in. (Zoom links are on the calendar for that day)

Blessing of the Animals

We celebrate the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi in October. This 11th annual short outdoor service with music and prayer is followed by coffee, juice and treats. 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.  Click here to see photos from 2019

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 anytime 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!

Camping Tripcamping

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!

Music Team

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.

Road cleanup smOutreach

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 9:00am in the parish hall for fellowship and prayer. Please bring a breakfast dish to share and hear encouraging stories from other women. (There is no Saturday Women in the Spirit meeting in January or July.)… on hold during COVID-19 with some Zoom conversations instead.
