St. John's is the downtown Episcopal Church in Boulder, Colorado. We are an inclusive, Christ-centered community reaching out to all who are seeking a deeper spirituality and relationship with God and one another. Our congregation is made up of people of every generation who come from a wide variety of backgrounds - families, children and youth are rapidly growing in numbers. We are formed and strengthened through a variety of worship services, traditional music, contemplative prayer, spiritual and social justice formation programs, as well as meaningful service within the parish, the local community and in the larger world.

halloweenHalloween Fun

The plans for our fall outing are coming together!   Please plan to join Pastor Susan, Father Ben, and Pam White on Sunday, October 26th for an evening of fun.  We'll meet at Anderson Farms ( www.andersonfarms.com ), 6728 County Road 3-1/4 (off of Highway 52) for the 30-acre corn maze, activities (hayride to the pumpkin patch, pumpkin launcher, Barnyard 500 pedal karts, mine car rides, barrel train rides, farm animals, kiddie korral playground, spider web, tire mountain, fort-alota-fun, etc...), and an old-fashioned bonfire!

We recommend that you purchase your tickets online, www.andersonfarms.com/online-tickets/ , ahead of time to avoid the long weekend lines.  Tickets are $12 per person, but children 3 and under are free. St. John's is paying for the bonfire site.  We'll meet at 3:45 p.m. in the parking lot near -- but not too near! -- the embankment of porta-potties, and break into groups to explore the corn maze and enjoy the activities.  Then we'll reconvene at our bonfire site around 5:30 p.m. for music (please bring your guitar or other portable instrument, if you like), campy entertainment, and s'mores. (If s'mores aren't your thing, feel free to bring a snack.  Do note, however, that "adult" beverages are not permitted.) 

Leave when you must, but we have the campfire until 10 p.m. Families with older children may want to stay for zombie paintball beginning at 7 p.m. (be sure to purchase the appropriate tickets if you plan to participate in paintball).

The children's ministries parents are asked  to provide the ingredients for s'mores.  Please let Pam White know if you can donate some graham crackers, Hershey bars, or marshmallows.  Anderson Farms will provide roasting sticks.
