Family Service at St John's Episcopal Church in Aptos, CA serving Santa Cruz County

Family Service – 10:00 a.m. 

This is our main service that welcomes all ages to worship. We experiment, through the year, with a variety of musical styles and settings–organ, piano, drums, guitar, brass and strings to sing praise to God.  Our choir sings twice a month through most of the year.  A printed bulletin will guide visitors through the liturgy.  All are welcome to receive the bread and wine around the altar.

Children ages 5 to 11 begin their worship in Godly Play in two age-based classes, then join the rest of the congregation for Holy Communion. On the first Sunday of the month the children are part of the service. During the summer, a single Sunday School class with lesson and activity is provided.

Parents with young children are invited to use the coloring materials provided, as well as the well-staffed nursery.

We recognize birthdays, anniversaries and offer blessings for life’s transitions and accomplishments. All are welcome to join in Holy Communion. Join us after the service for coffee hour and our adult forum.
