Our Community

Our doors are open to anyone who is seeking a church home and each Sunday we look forward to welcoming visitors into our beautiful and historic church.  All are invited to be part of our eclectic and engaged congregation regardless of race, culture, tradition, age, or sexual orientation. The people of St. John’s are a warm, welcoming group of devoted believers with a deep commitment to worship.  We cherish our liturgy, our church and its beautiful grounds, and each other.  Currently, our membership is composed primarily of Episcopalians, a few former Catholics, a meaningful number of main line Protestants and a few other denominations.  Many of our families have attended St. John’s for over 25 years, some for as many as 60 or more years.  Most live within 10 miles of St. John’s though, some members travel here from across the Hudson River, and from as far away as Albany, over 50 miles north.
