Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It, and When to Say Nothing At All
Got words? Oh yeah, you do! The average woman speaks over 20,000 words a day—not to mention the ones she types online. Karen Ehman shares from experience the how’s (and how-not-to’s) of dealing with the tongue in her new book Keep It Shut. Using biblical examples, as well as Karen’s own personal (and sometimes painful!) stories, Keep It Shut will equip you to know what to say, how best to say it, and when you’d better just keep your lips zipped!
This book will teach you:

St. John's coffee hour on Sunday mornings (Volunteers for food items needed):
St. John's is pleased to host a coffee hour for parishioners of all ages to mingle on Sundays! There will be two times each Sunday morning where coffee, lemonade, water and snacks will be set out in the first floor atrium area in Heyward Hall for everyone to enjoy: 9:00-9:30am before Sunday School, and again after the 10:30 service. St. John's will provide drinks each week, and we ask that volunteers sign up to bring food items for about 100 people (multiple volunteers can share one Sunday).
Participants will have the opportunity to explore our beliefs, traditions, and ministries. Your questions are welcome here. Most of all, you’ll have the chance to get to know other inquirers in a warm, informal setting. (This class is open to adult new-comers who may be interested in membership, and also to any long time adult members who would like a “re-tread” on their faith.)
Upcoming Class: Sat, Feb 7th
Sunday School for children, youth and adults begins at 9:30 am
