News from St. John's this Week:
We are beginning a new clothing distribution Sunday mornings in support of our friends at Mercy Community Church. Volunteers are needed to help with distribution on Sunday mornings from 9-9:30 am. Look for signup details in the Weekly E-News along with other volunteer opportunities.
Clothes can be donated Monday - Friday between 10 am - noon. Men's pants and jeans sizes 34 and smaller along with men's boxer/underwear are greatly needed. Thank you!
In-Person Worship for August 2021
Sundays 10:30 a.m.
Given the recent upsurge in new cases, and our desire to protect the children and the immunocompormised in our community, the Congregation Council has made the decision NOT to ease attendance restrictions further for August.
Please be informed:
If you do not plan to attend for any reason, please be aware that the service will be LIVE-STREAMED each Sunday on Facebook at 10:30 a.m. for your viewing. We want to make worship accessible to all. The live-stream from Sunday, July 25, can be viewed here:
Thank you for your patience, cooperation, and understanding. We sincerely appreciate your compliance with the expectations that we have outlined, and we continue to pray for our community.
Why Wear a Mask?
On Wednesday, July 28, Atlanta Mayor Bottoms issued a mask mandate “requiring all persons in a public place, including private businesses and establishments, to wear a mask or a cloth face covering over their nose and mouth when indoors.” We are committed to complying with the Mayor’s order and to following the guidance of the CDC.
