Other Adult Learning Opportunities

Programs of Bible Study and spiritual growth are ongoing in the parish throughout the year. Whether it is an intimate small study group or larger learning events, St. John’s has groups for all adults.

Book and Bible studies happen throughout the year and especially in the seasons of Lent and Advent.


The library is a comfortable place to browse and relax. Christian literature and videos are available for all ages. Parishioners may borrow material for personal enjoyment, recreation, education or guidance.

Ash Wednesday Youth Program

Every year on the first Wednesday in Lent youth aged 5 to 18 are invited to participate in St John's Ash Wednesday Youth Program.  The program runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Youth can be dropped off at the Brock St entrance starting at 8:00 a.m. and supervision is provided until 4:00 p.m.  All youth are welcome to attend, especially those raised in the Anglican or Lutheran traditions.

The program includes music, a craft/creative time, time for prayer and conversation, a scavenger hunt around the parish buildings, and participation in the Ash Wednesday Liturgy with the adult congregation at 10:00 a.m.  Healthy snacks and lunch are provided.  There is no cost for the day.
