Happening at St. John's
Smart Lunch Smart Kid is back! St. John's is participating in Action Ministry's Smart Lunch, Smart Kid initiative, which provides free lunches to children from low income families over the summer months. Sign up in the Narthex to donate items. You can put items in the colorful boxes next to the food pantry baskets in the sanctuary at any time. We will be assembling lunches after worship on June 28, July 12, and July 26. Help us feed hungry children in Atlanta this summer!
The Reformation Project: Would you like to be better equipped to talk about the Bible and LGBT issues in constructive ways with non-LGBT-affirming Christians? Would you like to work together towards a more inclusive and affirming Church? On June 11-13th, 2015, Matthew Vines, author of the book 'God and the Gay Christian', will be leading a conference in Atlanta to address these questions in order to help advance the dignity of LGBT people, especially Christians in non-affirming churches, denominations, or communities who seek to have more loving, fruitful, and informed conversations with non-affirming friends and family members. If you would like to attend this conference, please contact our Evangelism Chair. There is a registration fee, but scholarships are available for those who need it - please speak with one of the pastors.
