St. John's Episcopal Church
St. John's Episcopal Church in Kane, Pennsylvania is one of the smallest congregations in the Dioceses of NWPA and WNY, but we are growing, and active in a big way in our community. You will find our members working as volunteers or as board members on most every charitable organization in town, from the Kane Area Food Pantry and CROP Walk, to the Salvation Army Red Kettle project, to the Friends' Memorial Public Library. St. John's sponsors a discussion group on Climate Change and provides a forum to address environmental issues. In cooperation with the local Ministerial Association we host an annual winter solstice Blue Christmas event for grieving families during the holiday season. Beginning in January we will be inviting the neighborhood children in for a Saturday morning Breakfast Bunch which will include games, music and craft activities. We at St. John's, seek to spread the love of Christ and live every day as a "Great Day in the Kingdom!"
Sacred Ground Race Dialogue Circles
Sacred Ground is dialogue series on race, grounded in faith. Small groups are invited to walk through chapters of America’s history of race, racism, and whiteness while weaving in threads of family story, economic class, and political and regional identity. The 10-part series is built around a powerful online curriculum of documentary films and readings that focus on Indigenous, Black, Latino, and Asian/Pacific American histories as they intersect with European American histories.
Sacred Ground is a resource coming out of Becoming Beloved Community, The Episcopal Church’s long-term commitment to racial healing, reconciliation, and justice in our personal lives, our ministries, and our society. This series is especially designed to help white people talk with other white people, while being open to all racial/ethnic groups. Participants are invited to peel away the layers that have contributed to the challenges and divides of the present day – all while grounded in our call to faith, hope and love.
