Updates as of September 23, 2022

Dear Friends 

Our St. John's  "In person worship" for this Sunday September 25th is being held in St. Paul's Presbyterian Church at 9am.  Please park in St. John's parking lot and west of Prescott Street so that we don't overlap the parking of St. Paul's members or their service that follows ours. For those that have mobility issues and need the ramp you may park near the back entrance to St. Paul's. We encourage everyone to continue masking, if you are able, in an effort to protect the most vulnerable and high-risk members of our church family. We will have a recording of this service on our Youtube channel by noon as we cannot livestream from St. Paul's. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiCSQR6NbG9_u7FSY7hrAow  

 Announcements

Update on our structural matter: The “Scope of Work” document has been received. This will allow us to prepare a document that will be used for the purpose of tendering the repairs.

The Vision Working Group will begin interviewing members of the congregation this month.  If you would like to be among the first to have your voice heard, please contact the church office to set up a time.  Interviews are confidential and they may be conducted at a location and time of your choice.  Thank you in advance for joining the     conversation.

The Book Circle is meeting on Tuesday, October 25th at 7pm on Zoom. The book is The Rose Code by Kate Quinn.  If you are interested in joining the conversation, please contact the church office or Jennifer Gow ().

 "Imagine St. John's" -  Can you imagine St. Johns in 5 or 10 years?  Who are we becoming, what do you see for us as a community of faith , and where do we feel called?  If questions like these intrigue or inspire you, we would be pleased to welcome you to join a working group to inquire into our church vision.  The purpose of this small group is to design the process and lead the inquiry.  That may include consultation with other members of the congregation.  We anticipate the group would prepare  a proposal to bring back to the church community for consideration.  Your interest and enthusiasm are the only requirements.  People of all ages, backgrounds, and years with the church are welcome.  If you are interested, please contact Jennifer Gow, Ron Patterson or Rev. Lynda.

"Listening Ear" - our Worship committee  has a list of members who would love to lend a listening ear to anyone who needs to hear a friendly voice over the phone. Please call or email the office so Helen can add you to their list of members who need a call. We also have volunteers willing to deliver groceries.
