CELEBRATING 250 YEARS OF FAITH IN JOHNSTOWN, NY
Thank you for visiting our website! St. John’s Episcopal Church is an historical place of worship in the center of downtown Johnstown, New York. Our Sunday Holy Eucharistic is celebrated at 8:00 am and 10:00 am by our Rector, The Rev. Laurie Garramone. The 8:00 am service is spoken while the 10:00 am service includes organ music, hymns and an anthem by the St. John’s Adult Choir. Children’s Chapel is held during the 10:00 am service. An informal coffee hour follows the 10:00 am service every Sunday.
Please consider this a heartfelt invitation to visit us at St. John's. Check the announcements and calendar on this page to note the date and time of services or call our church office at (518) 762-9210. We look forward to meeting you!
Our missionaries returned from Cairo, New York, on Saturday, July 26th.
On Sunday, August 3rd, they will share their amazing experiences with St. John's at both the 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. worship services. There will be a breakfast between the services. Everyone is welcome.
Please be sure to join us on August 3rd, to welcome them home and celebrate the work they have done in the world!
All children are welcome to join us for Children's Chapel held during the summer months. Children will be dismissed from the 10:00 a.m. Worship Service before the readings to go with two adult volunteers to enjoy their own church experience in the Hawkins Room. We request that a responsible adult accompany children under the age of 4 years.
