Dear St. John’s Members and Adherents At a meeting of the Executive Board on Wednesday October 28th, the decision was made to further delay the ‘’In Person Sunday Worship’’ until December or later, depending on the Covid 19 conditions at the time. The Church Board will meet on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 to re-visit the matter. We can worship together through our online services which are available on a weekly basis. Thank you. Emile Lajoie, Board Chair, St. John’s United Church
