April 2018  

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.

Instructed Eucharists

The morning services on Sunday, April 22, will be instructed Eucharists, in which the worship leaders offer concise commentary on the overall structure of the celebration, and specific ritual elements of it, during the course of the liturgy. At 10 a.m. the children will remain in the church for the entire service, and they are encouraged to sit near the front of the congregation to enhance their participation.
