We are committed to God, to our church, and to each other as a family in Christ, providing and cherishing spiritual growth, and living our faith in the community at large.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We want you to feel as comfortable as possible when you visit St. John's. While we would love a chance to meet you, you don’t have to identify yourself as a visitor. You can slip into a worship service and check us out without identifying yourself to anyone, if that is what you choose. You’ll have the opportunity during the services to fill out a welcome card, where you can give as little or as much information about yourself as you wish—and let us know of any prayer requests that you have.
We are a community of caring individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds following an inviting and loving Lord. Energized and challenged by God’s spirit, we find ourselves to be a community called to seek and serve Christ in all persons and to be stewards of the world God has committed to our care. We are bound together on our spiritual journeys by common forms of prayer, by a vision of an inclusive church and by the desire to help one another grow in the ability to see Christ present in our daily lives.
WHAT WE DO
We share a rich, deep history that reaches beyond the founding of St. John’s Church in Crawfordsville in the 1830s. We share in the history and traditions of the Church of England, and beyond that, we share in the history of God’s working through all of Christian and Jewish History. Our rich history and Anglican tradition, like the bread and wine of the Eucharist, nourishes us as a faith community following the Way of Christ into a future shaped and inspired by the Spirit of God.
FIND YOUR FAITH
Whether you are a lifelong Episcopalian or don't even know what "Episcopal" means, you can find a home at St. John's! Many of our members were born Episcopalian, and many others have come to our church from Roman Catholic, Baptist, and nondenominational backgrounds, among others.
Whatever your background, you will find St. John's to be a place of lively faith, reverent curiosity, and passion for service. The video on the left describes some of the ways we serve our community.
