A Message From Our Rector
Welcome to St. John's Parish, Niantic. We invite you, your family and friends to celebrate in worship with us as we seek a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. St. John's is home to an inclusive and diverse community of faithful people. We are young, seniors, parents with children, single, divorced, married, straight, gay; from all walks of life and a spectrum of backgrounds and faith traditions. The Episcopal Church (part of the Anglican Communion) is considered the church of the "Via Media" or the Middle Way between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism. Come along, and join us on the journey.
Adult Bible Study - The Gospel of St. Matthew
Next meeting, Monday, October 3rd, 3:00 PM
Don’t worry if you missed the first week. WE MEET AGAIN ON OCT. 3RD. Please sign up on the slype bulletin board or call the Parish Office to let us know you’re planning to participate. Attendees are asked to B.Y.O.B. – ‘bring your own Bible”. We’ll be using the NRSV translation. (New Revised Standard Version). Bible Study discussion guides have been ordered and will be distributed when they arrive. Depending on the size of the group, we’ll either meet in the Rector’s Study or the Parish Library. Don’t fret if you’ve never been part of a bible study group! No experience is necessary.
Saint John’s Sisters Of Prayer Ministry
One of the wonderful ministries that makes the Parish of St. John’s a special community is the “Sisters of Prayer”. The faithful members of the Sisters of Prayer offer intercessory prayer in response to prayer requests from parishioners, friends of St. John’s and others whose lives are closely linked to ours. To have the Sisters of Prayer hold the name of friends and loved ones in prayer each week, please complete a request form. Forms are located on the table outside the sacristy. Simply fill out a “Prayer Request Form” and place it in the slotted box provided. Jan Bond periodically updates the prayer request list as individual situations change. Each Sunday during the Holy Eucharist, the Intercessor, at the Prayers of the People reads a list of names for whom prayers have been requested. This is a separate list. Please submit names for Sunday Prayers of the People to the parish office.
