Children’s Chapel, 9:00 am - 9:40 am

Children’s Chapel (ages 3-5 years old) While we strongly encourage all St. John’s families to worship together, some families appreciate a little help teaching their children the basics of church life and communal worship. This is where the Children’s Chapel comes into play! Located between Tilson Hall and the Parish Hall, the Children’s Chapel provides space for age-appropriate lessons about church life (such as “Why do we have candles in worship?” or “Why do people dip their fingers in the font?”) and the Bible. Children also enjoy songs and other activities designed to engage their interests and energies. Parents drop off their children starting at 8:55 am, and pick-up their children during the Peace and Announcements portion of the worship service (around 9:35 am).

Tuesday, 12 noon: Healing Service with Holy Communion and Anointing with oil (Chapel)

Anointing with oil for many different purposes was commonly practiced throughout the Scriptures. The New Testament mentions it specifically in connection with praying for the sick. On one occasion Jesus sent out the twelve disciples on a mission; they "anointed many sick people with oil and healed them" (Mark 6:13). 

In the Episcopal Church, we believe neither the laying on of hands nor anointing with oil is required for healing, for often in Scripture healing takes place without either. But at times the touch of a praying person and the application of oil are an encouragement to faith, and such a practice is grounded in Scripture (James 5:14-16).
