December 2017  

St. John's is an emergent Christian Community and has been Petaluma's parish of the Episcopal Church since 1856. Check out our schedule of services to your right and announcements about special programs under "News."

We are rooted in the Hebrew and Greek scriptures, the ancient practices of the church, and a historic institution, the Anglican Communion, that connects us with brothers and sisters throughout the world.  

At the same time, we are on a journey of discovery as we follow the living Spirit through an era of uncertainty and epochal change.  We welcome individuals and families of diverse faith backgrounds, ages, interests, and experiences to join us on this exciting adventure.  We honor personal freedom and responsibility and the divine image in everyone. Contact us to find out more, or come by for a visit.
