The people of St. John’s Episcopal Church, Chester, Virginia welcome you to our home. All of us are seekers. We may be searching for a community where we can be our authentic selves, a peace that strengthens, a joy that is contagious, belief in what is beyond ourselves, a purpose in our lives.
Two disciples of John were looking for more than what he could offer. When Jesus saw them following him, he said to them, “What are you looking for?” They said, “Rabbi” (which means Teacher), “where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come and see.” – John 1:38.
It is our hope that you will connect with this family of seekers to “come and see”: to have a conversation, share a meal, experience an accepting community that may offer you opportunities learn, to grow and to make a difference in our world. Come and experience God’s love in action.
Peace and joy,
Worship is one of the many ways we open ourselves up to connect with God and others. During Sunday worship, there are Scripture readings, prayers, music, sacraments, silence/reflections, and relationship-building with fellow parishioners.
