Welcome to St. John's, Mt. Vernon!

God is calling St. John's to serve, both within our church and within the community and the world we live. Our mission is to continue to "serve Christ in the community" as we faithfully have been doing for over 160 years. We strive to be a community where God's love is visibly changing lives, and people walk daily with Jesus Christ. We will show evidence of this type of service to community by celebrating God's call to us to love, by growing in faith, by serving others generously, and by drawing others into the heart of God.

Come and see. Come and worship. Come and serve. Come and join.

  • 2020 Pre-Election Prayer Vigil

    A Pre-Election Prayer Vigil will be held at St. John’s Episcopal Church on Sunday, November 1st beginning at 5:00p.m.. Everyone is invited to come and pray silently or hear prayers offered for our nation as we prepare to vote in this year’s election. This is not a formal worship service. Prayer visitors are encouraged to freely come and go as they choose, and use as little or as much of the time as they like. A passage of Scripture and a prayer will be read in intervals during the Vigil with a short period of silence between prayers. Even if you plan to vote early, we invite you to come and prayer for others who will vote on Election Day. Let us show that our witness and unity in faith is greater than the issues that divide our nation. A copy of the prayers can be found on this website under the "Worship Liturgies" tab. This service will also be live streamed on the church's Facebook page.

  • COVID 19 Parish Reopening Plan

    St. John's Church Reopening Plan

    St. John's is reopening the church sanctuary for worship with rules and restrictions. The reopening plan can be found on this website under the WORSHIP LITURGIES tab. We urge all members and visitors to St. John's to read the document before coming to worship with us on Sunday mornings. Our county has had very few cases of the COVID 19 virus, and we welcome all people to come and worship with us in a safe environment. There may be some Sunday's when the weather is good on which we will be worshipping outside in our grassy lot with fewer restrictions.
