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.
