Welcome!

 

Welcome to the new Saint John's Compass website. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. Saint John's has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

 

   
 

 

Welcome to St. John's parish website!  We are a small but growing congregation on the Chester - Lancaster County border in West Caln Township at the intersection of route 340W and route 10.  Historic St. John's was formed in 1729 by a group of English, Scots and Germans to worship Almighty God and His Son Jesus Christ in the tradition of the Church of England.  It has been a vibrant and mission-oriented parish down to the present time.

 

We are a mixture of seniors, young adults and children who minister together to "serve the world in His Name."  We welcome ALL persons who are searching for spiritual values and wholeness in our broken world.  St. John's is a "happy" congregation with great diversity of expression in faith and worship.  We believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again for all people for all time.

 

I have ministered in 5 congregations in the Diocese of Pennsylvania through 40+ years and love the folks at St. John's who constitute our parish family.  Questions about our parish regarding worship, outreach and parish ministry may be answered in other facets of our website.  You are always welcome to talk with me  by phone (rectory:717-442-3189, office: 717-442-4302, or cell: 484-888-1537).  You can also e-mail the church at stjohns@stjohnscompass.comcastbiz.net.

 

We would love to have you visit St. John's any Sunday.  God bless you and have a wonderful day.

 

In our Lord,

Fr. John
