What’s Going on at St. John’s
January 18th to 25th The week of Christian Unity. Please keep in your prayers our brothers and sisters throughout the world, united by our confession of faith in Christ.
Sunday, January 19th – Morning Prayer will be said for the 9:30 a.m. service, followed by Fellowship and Coffee Hour in the Parish Hall. All are welcome.
Beginning on Sunday, January 26th and continuing through the rest of Epiphany season, we will begin a study entitled, “If This is Our Church, What Is Our Story?” Look for details after January 1, but we hope everyone will participate, for each of us is a storyteller and character in the ongoing story.
Epiphany is traditionally a season for people to have their homes blessed, as we celebrate walking with Jesus and welcoming him into our lives. If you would like to have your home blessed, please see Fr David. You might want to have your home blessed if it has not been blessed before, or there have been changes to the home since the last time it was blessed, or there has been a transition in your family. A blessing might be done with just your family, or as a parish gathering. Whatever shape it takes, it can be a wonderful experience of inviting and welcoming the presence of God into your life through your home.
Sunday, February 2 – The Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord. The Bishop will be making his annual visitation to St John’s. At present we hope he and Leslie will be arriving on Saturday to meet with the vestry, and then celebrate the Eucharist with us on Sunday and be with us all for the coffee hour after. All are welcome.
Sunday, February 9th – Eucharist at 9:30 a.m. followed by Fellowship and Coffee Hour in the Parish Hall. All are welcome.
Sunday, February 16th – Morning Prayer will be said for the 9:30 a.m. service, followed by Fellowship and Coffee Hour in the Parish Hall. All are welcome.
