The heavens are telling the glory of God; and the firmament proclaims his handiwork. Day to day pours forth speech, and night to night declares knowledge. There is no speech, nor are there words; their voice is not heard; yet their voice goes out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In the heavens he has set a tent for the sun, which comes out like a bridegroom from his wedding canopy, and like a strong man runs its course with joy. Its rising is from the end of the heavens, and its circuit to the end of them; and nothing is hid from its heat. The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul; the decrees of the Lord are sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is clear, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever; the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey, and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward. But who can detect their errors? Clear me from hidden faults. Keep back your servant also from the insolent; do not let them have dominion over me. Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression. Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
As we gather on World Communion Sunday, no matter where we are, God is with us and the Spirit connects us as Jesus invites us to come. We gather at 9:00AM online or in-person and we celebrate God’s love for us. Join us as we worship and share in the Sacrament of Communion. Bring your own elements, if you wish, however, we will have elements safely prepared for those who enter the church building. For those on-line, gather your elements before the service begins. Blessings on this day! Pastor Martin.

St. John's believes in helping those around us. We partner with the Northampton Food Bank and other local venues to help those in need. Our Harvest Home celebration, pictured to the right, is held each September and has been one of our church's traditions for over 100 years. We also sponsor an annual Blood Drive and participate in an angel giving tree at Christmas for children in need.
We offer Sunday worship service at 9:00 AM. Once a month we meet after the service for St. John's Cafe, a time of food and fellowship. Sunday school is available during the school year. Other offerings include a fellowship group and a Grief Support group.
