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!
Sign up for In Person Worship
Sundays 10:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
Please sign up to attend in-person worship services in the coming weeks. As services fill up, we will add a second service as needed. You will also note there are opportunities to volunteer for clothes distribution at Mercy prior to worship. Sign up to help in the same place you sign up for worship.
This decision to return to in-person worship was made by the Reopening Team and Church Council based on updated CDC guidelines and COVID-19 data from Georgia’s Department of Public Health. We intend for our worship services to be welcoming to all, vaccinated and unvaccinated alike. To ensure a safe reopening at St. John’s, we are adopting the following guidelines for in-person worship services:
Once you have signed up, please check your email for additional information about the in-person service procedures and expectations.
Although we are currently limiting our Sunday in-person worship service to 40 spots, we will also offer a second service on Saturday evening based on additional demand.
