St. John's
Position on Racism


Welcome to St. John’s Episcopal Church, serving Arlington for more than 130 years.  We invite you to join us as we celebrate our life together in Christ. We are an inclusive and welcoming community of faith, and questions are always welcome here.  We are committed to helping people establish a deeper relationship with God in Christ.

We are a worshiping community.  We believe that regular worship, hearing Holy Scripture, and celebrating Holy Communion are the foundations of our faith and spiritual growth. 

We are a learning community.  We offer Christian education for all. Young children learn how much God loves them through Bible lessons, art projects, song and presentations in church, as well as service projects. Older children and teens experience a combination of service projects and theological reflection.  Adults attend our Sunday Seminar, where we share lively presentations and discussions on spiritual issues and current events.

We are a giving community.  St. John's has outreach programs targeting needs in our own comunity and around the world.  We give generously of our time, talents, and resources, contributing hundreds of volunteer hours with open hands and open hearts.
Our Mission statement says who we are: "St. John’s mission is building a strong spiritual community in Christ; welcoming all who enter our doors, including believers, seekers, and doubters; and reaching out to those in need both within our congregation and around us". Wherever you are in your journey, we invite you to join us.  We hope that you will find 0in our loving and caring community a place that you can call home.
