First things first, we meet in the D'Angelo Center located on the campus of St. John's University (see campus map) in Jamaica, NY. Our service begins at 11 AM. There is ample parking next to the D'Angelo Center. Although you may park anywhere on campus, the lot through Gate 6 (here) is the closest. See you there!
2020 has been a hard year! But after a long hiatus, we are back at St. John's for Sunday worship! Due to covid restrictions, we are only allowed a maximum capacity of 43 people in our main worship room. Because of this, we have a sign up form that you can fill out to reserve your seat for a coming Sunday.
We know going somewhere for the first time can be daunting. Our hope is to make your visit as comfortable as possible. Probably the most difficult thing about going somewhere new is that feeling of being an outsider and/or stranger.
We know churches can be no different, and Pastor John and Sarah are strong advocates of reaching out, crossing divides and become inclusive, welcoming and loving. To help you get acclimated, there is a welcoming committee who are here to reach out to you and introduce you to some of the "regulars" and let you know how to get connected.
Our worship runs about 90 minutes, and our praise tends towards a modern style, however our liturgy is structured and in a traditional reformed style. Most people dress casually, and there are many children milling about in the early service, before they are sent out to the children's ministry.
Like most 17-year old EMs (English ministries) - Our demographics lean towards younger people with the majority of our congregation in their mid-late 20s and 30s, and a few in their early 40s. There aren't a lot of English speaking Korean-American senior citizens in our ministry, yet. Our college and post college group is our second largest category and is growing.
