Happening at St. John's
Adult Learning Hour: This Sunday is Women of the ELCA (WELCA) Sunday. Our speaker for the day is Mary Frances Bowley, Founder and CEO of Wellspring Living, an organization fighting against childhood sexual abuse and exploitation since 2001. Please join us as we hear from this award winning humanitarian how we can help.
Blessing of the Animals October 2: When we say all are welcome, we mean it! In celebration of St. Francis and of the life of all God’s creatures, we invite you to bring your beloved pet to worship in order to receive a special blessing. All pets big or small are welcome, but for safety's sake we ask you to have your pet on a leash or in a carrier.
New Members: We will receive new members on Sunday, October 16. If you are interested in officially joining the St. John's family, please contact Pastors Nancy or Beverly.
