Updates as of January 26, 2023

Dear Friends 

Our St. John's  "In person worship" for this Sunday January 29, 2023, 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 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  

 Rev. Ralph Taylor will be covering for Rev. Lynda during her medical leave starting Monday, January 16th. He can be contacted at 613-258-2354 home, 613-447-5695 cell and email: 

New office hours will be:

Tuesdays - 9 am to 3 pm

Wednesdays - 9 am to 2 pm

Thursdays - 9 am to 2 pm

Fridays - 10 am to noon

The Social Committee appreciates everyone's generosity at the Basket sale in December. If you are looking for a place for your empty baskets and empty jam jars with rims, please return them to the church and we can use them again in 2023! Just drop them off to the foyer of our church during office hours.

From the Visioning Committee  If you have not yet been interviewed, please reach out to any of us on the committee.  If you have already given your ideas and as a result of today's service, would like to add new thoughts and ideas, please reach out to the person who interviewed you. 

 "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.
