Our corner of the ever-expanding mission field that Christ has shared is located in La Porte, Texas. We glorify God in the joy of the Real Presence we experience among us, which we strive to share with the generosity God has shown to us. We are deeply aware of the many gifts and graces that reside in the unified, holy heart that beats at the center of this parish family. We are confident that it is his Holy Heart we feel within us, and so through our many ministries and outreach missions, we show that Heart and share it without reserve!
Our website is always under construction, as are our spirits and the life we share with each other and with the world! Our life in ministry is evolving daily! We celebrate that we are living, moving, and changing into the likeness of Christ-- something that is our never-ending and imperfect journey.
When you visit, we will let you know how much we treasure your presence. But, we do more than welcome you to worship or events. We invite you to join us in the journey that is the sustaining movement of a pilgrim people, seeking to DO the Church and BE the Church, more than simply meet in a building called, "a church."
Historically, we have been known as, "The Beloveds by the Bay," and we are. Today, we are also living and giving that belovedness to all.
As you explore this About Us page, you will find our Service Schedule, Upcoming Events, Announcements, Mission Statement, Core Values, and directions to the parish campus. We pray this is enough to get you started and ready to---
Come be with us. Come be as you are. Come be Christ's own.
COME. BE. LOVED.
Grace upon grace,
The Faith Community of St. John's Episcopal Church
La Porte, Texas
