Happening at St. John's
Freeze Shelter Celebration BBQ:
Our freeze shelter is turning 7! Following worship and the Confirmation reception we will have a barbecue, giving thanks to all who have helped with the freeze shelter. If you stayed overnight, were greeter, scheduled volunteers, brought food, did laundry, or did anything to help make our guests welcome, thank you. Everyone is invited to celebrate.
Reformation Exhibit at Pitts Library: Pitts Theology Library is exploring Luther's Theses with the exhibit The Image of a Fractured Church: Martin Luther and the 95 Theses. Curated by our own Dr. Armin Siedlecki, the exhibit presents the context of Martin Luther's Theses, the role of indulgences in sixteenth century religious life and the use of disputations in theological education. Shown also are the early responses to Luther's Theses by both his supporters and his opponents, the impact of Luther's Reformation, including depictions of the posting of the Ninety-Five Theses in later Protestant traditions, as well as current attempts by Catholics and Protestants to find common ground.
Construction Update: Much needed restoration of our property continues with work on mortar and flashing. Construction will be going on around both the mansion and sanctuary to address water incursion issues. Pardon our mess and please watch out for scaffolding and work zones!
