To the Glory of God and for the Common Good, we make God’s love known now and for generations to come through worship and service to all.
-- Mission Statement
adopted June, 2010
Welcome to St. John’s Episcopal Church! Holy Eucharist is celebrated on Sundays at 8am & 10am. Choral Evensong is offered on the first Sunday of each month at 4pm, during the academic year. (Nursery care is provided during the 10am service & during Choral Evensong).
Since 1835, the Parish of St. John’s has been worshiping and serving God, both from within our Church family and within our community of Bangor, Maine. We conduct traditional Episcopal services in our historic gothic building high atop State Street Hill at 225 French Street. We have a notable choir who has a reputation for fine music-making in the Anglican choral tradition. Please join us as we worship in prayer and song!
As a fundraiser, St. Johns will once again be having its food booth "We're All Ears" at the American Folk Festival August 25-27. This year, in addition to corn-on-the-cob (with various delicious toppings), we will be selling popcorn, and pies and cakes by the slice. In order to make the fundraiser successful, we will need many volunteers for setup, working the booth, breakdown and especially making pies and cakes for us to sell. Working at the booth will be generally in four hour shifts. If that is not your cup of tea, please consider donating pies or cakes for us to sell. There will soon be a sign-up sheet at Lemonade on the Lawn for volunteers. Your participation will help to make this fundraiser successful. Please contact Tom Archambault at email@example.com or the office if you are interested in volunteering.

Bringing communion to our sick and homebound is an important part of our life together. If you or someone you know would like to receive communion please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org .
On Sundays, when making your offerings to God and giving financial support to the church, please consider also bringing canned food each week for our donations to the Food Cupboard at the Bangor Homeless Shelter. They can be placed by the bread and the wine at the entrance of the church and will be brought forward at the Offertory by our children and youth.
