Welcome to St. John's Episcopal Church

 St. John’s Episcopal Church in Vernon is a vibrant parish that shares the love of God with our community while caring for those within and outside of our parish.  We are a congregation that prays both with our words and our actions. 

Please join us for worship in-person or online.  Our Sunday services are usually at 8:00 and 10:00.  We stream on facebook live; the link is in the menu above.  We hope to see you soon.

Our congregation growing . . . . . . . .
. . . . . . . . . . . and so is our building!

The Vestry recently voted unanimously to proceed with design work and a cost estimate to provide better accessibility to our church building. It has been a longstanding goal for St. John’s for more than 10 years and a great deal of Vestry discernment has gone into this decision.  We believe our faith, our desire to extend hospitality to everyone that comes through our doors, and our current financial strength have led us to this unique opportunity to improve accessibility and welcome all who visit our church.

Plans are almost done for improvements to both the upper and lower parking lot entrances to the church, the addition of two handicapped-accessible bathrooms on the sanctuary level, and a lift that allows handicapped access to church undercroft.  DRAFT plans for the planned addition are available for viewing in St. Mary's Hall (on wall opposite the large bank of windows) and can also be seen electronically by clicking here for drawings.  We will hold a parish meeting on May 19 at 9:00 am (between services) in St. Mary's Hall to present and discuss project details.
