St. John’s Episcopal Church is an extended family of loving people bound by our faith in Jesus Christ. We seek to deepen our relationship with God, support one another, strengthen our faith community, and serve our neighbors. All are welcome!
We are located off of I-70, America's Main Street, in Abilene, Kansas on the southeast corner of Buckeye Avenue (Hwy 15) and N. 6th Street. Look for the church with the red doors.
Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome to be a part of our parish life by joining us in worship and service to the God of life and love.
If you are visiting in the area, we'd be delighted to offer you our hospitality.
Fr. Jerry Rankin, Priest in Charge

The word Advent means “coming.” It is a time to slow down, be quiet and meditate about the real meaning of Christmas. These four weeks before Christmas are a time to prepare our hearts and our lives as we wait for the coming of Jesus. We focus on the promise that God made to his people and how that promise was fulfilled in Jesus. Advent is also the beginning of the liturgical year. The season begins on the fourth Sunday before Christmas and ends on the day before Christmas. It is a time for new beginning for us as Christians.
