Summer at Saint John’s Episcopal Church

TROY – With decreasing restrictions, Sunday in-person worship continues at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. The 8 a.m. spoken service follows a more ancient Eucharistic Rite in Elizabethan English.

Hymns are accompanied on the regal pipe organ, and Communion music is performed by a contemporary duo of vocalists with guitar. Coffee hour follows, either in the garden if the weather permits, or in the gym.

The Thrift Store is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon, for shopping as well as dropping off items. On Saturday mornings the church also offers bread, pastries, and coffee, at no charge. Visitors may drop into the garden and enjoy these treats, relaxing in the church’s Adirondack chairs. (Neither the Thrift Store nor the treats will be available on Saturday, July 3rd.) The monthly Food Pantry will be from 10 a.m. until noon on Saturdays, July 10th and August 7th.
