St. John's is a community of faith centered on the person and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, striving to reflect the command of our Lord that we love one another. In our worship and life together we intentionally welcome all people, care for one another, feed the hungry, tend the sick, and serve as a home for those seeking God's love.
At St. John's we believe we are challenged by God to become what He wants us to be. We hope you will find St. John's Episcopal Church a place where you, too, are refreshed and renewed spiritually. We Believe..
The holy season of Advent and Christmas are now upon us! Main Street in Versailles is brightly lit each night and the Christmas tree is up in front of the courthouse and decorated with holiday cheer! This is a time of many varied emotions for all of us, as we remember Christmases past and look again to the promised new hope given by God in the birth of the Christ Child. ‘Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.’ (Luke 1:10-11)
This is especially the season when we are greatly encouraged by our belief in Jesus Christ and our thankfulness to God for belonging to this community of faith at St. John’s. Together as a church through the Holy Eucharist, ministry, and fellowship, we acknowledge the incredible love of God shown for us in the Incarnation; God becoming humanity in His Son Jesus to offer salvation and eternal life for all people and all the nations of the world. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)
Advent and Christmas are as well a time when we are called by the infant Jesus to renew our faith and commitment to him through our worship on Sundays and Wednesdays, as well as by daily reflection on the meaning of God being born into the world to Mary and Joseph as a tiny infant in a lowly stable. What a remarkable story and faith we have to share as Good News to a world desperately in need of light and hope!
Consider worshipping faithfully each Sunday of Advent at either the 8 AM or 10 AM Services of Holy Eucharist. On the Fourth Sunday of Advent, December 22nd, at 10 AM we will have the Christmas pageant with the children of St. John’s in place of the sermon. Christmas Eve we will celebrate the Holy Eucharist at 5 PM and then a Festival Candlelight Holy Eucharist at 11 PM. Come, worship and invite family and friends to be with us and share in the joy of the celebration of Jesus Christ’s birth!
May you and your loved ones have a blessed Advent and a joy-filled Christmas!
Faithfully yours in Christ,
