Thanks and blessings to everyone who has donated clothing, backpacks and school supplies for Hand over the past year. Please keep the donations coming! Hand students are still in need of backpacks (new or used), clothing (particularly gloves, jeans, black pants, and T-shirts in sizes 12 and up), can openers, and personal hygiene items. Do you have extra school supplies? Students need flash drives, loose leaf paper, and composition books too.
Drop off items in the break room across from the parish office in Heyward Hall.
In order to deliver in-depth information, editorial commentary and insider perspectives on all things episcopal at St. John's, we're introducing blogs to our social media circle. It’s a step forward in making our communication feel fresh, modern and relatable to you and the wider Episcopal community. Our first blogger is Director of Music Celia Tolar-Bane. Check out Celia's thoughts on All things musical and liturgical in our parish.
Mondays, 7-8:30 pm, beginning September 8 In What Happens When Women Say Yes to God, Lysa TerKeurst shares inspiring stories from her own life along with compelling biblical insights as she describes what it means to partner with God in all decisions and actions. Readers will learn to: discern the voice of God and truly say yes to His call; see what wholehearted obedience looks like on a daily basis; give themselves to God; and let Him affect lives around them. This book reveals how honoring God produces a life of deep joy and great purpose. It is an invitation to seek God and boldly ask for and expect more from the Christian life. The Bible study series will meet in the parlor on Mondays, September 8 through October 13, from 7-8:30 pm. The cost to register is $20.
If you are interested in helping in the kitchen on Wednesday Nights, September 17 - November 19, please contact the parish office. Volunteers are needed to set up the kid's table, serve the Wednesday Night meal, help make dessert and take up money at the door. It's just once-a-week from 4:45 pm until 6:30 pm!
Come join the fun on Wednesdays!
