Welcome to St John's!
St John’s Anglican Church was established in Olds in 1894. For the past 124 years we have been, and continue to be, a vibrant church family working together to share with others God’s love and the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ, sharing our time, talents and treasure.
Our MISSION is simple: to Walk with Christ. What does this mean for our daily lives? How we are to live our lives is exemplified by the life of our Lord Jesus and through the commandments given to us: to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength; to love our neighbours as our ourselves; and to love one another as Jesus has loved us. Notice that the idea in all these commandments is that we are to LOVE!
Love is not just loving our small circle of friends and family - it includes strangers, foreigners, our enemies...in short, everyone! Love is not just a warm, fuzzy feeling - love manifests itself in action, service and self-sacrifice.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
