The first of 2 assembly dates will be June 23 in conjunction with Sandwich Sunday. Please contact our outreach team if you have any questions.
Contemplative Christian Living: The Contemplative Christian Life group is gathering at 9:15 a.m. on Sundays for contemplative practice. The group is currently reading Living Buddha, Living Christ by Thich Nhat Hahn. Our small group format invites contemplation and relationships, and we look forward to welcoming new folks anytime!
Fresh Start & Hope Thru Soap: Fresh Start Community Showers and Hope Thru Soap gather monthly at St. John’s to offer showers, haircuts food, fellowship, toiletries and clothing for the homeless community. It is a wonderful reminder of what it means to be church. In November, over twenty of our neighbors showered and got haircuts. Thanks to Kevin Harris, Susan Feurzeig and Heather Wallace
