Happening at St. John's
Adult Sunday School Field Trip: Join adult learning Dec. 6 for a special Sunday school two-for-one special. Our regular class at 9:15 a.m. will be on Luther. Then after the congregational meeting, we will take a guided tour of Pitts Theology Library at Candler. Plan to snag some snacks at coffee fellowship, and we will meet at Candler at 2:00 pm. Carpooling is available and encouraged.
Freeze Shelter is Back: When the weather turns cold St. John's invites our homeless friends to enjoy fellowship, snacks, cocoa, and a warm bed. Volunteers are needed to provide snacks for our guests, spend the night, and wash the bed linens. If you are interested learning more about this important ministry or are ready to sign up to help please contact the Outreach chair.
Advent at St. Johns: November 29 marks the First Sunday in Advent, and our theme for this year is "The World is About to Turn." On Wednesday nights, December 2 and 16, we'll gather in the Fellowship Hall at 7 p.m. for a simple soup supper and prayer service, using Holden Evening Prayer. On December 9, we'll have our 2nd Annual Advent Potluck Dinner and Bible Study with the Mercy Community. Please be watching for sign-up sheets in the coming weeks, and plan to participate in these special mid-week events.
