Grief Support Group

St. John’s is exploring the idea of starting a grief support group. Many have experienced the loss of someone close to them, dealing with the feelings and situation is sometimes very difficult. If you would be interested in joining this group, please contact the church office, Cindy Powlus, or Loreen Comstock. We anticipate that this group will be very informal and a chance for everyone to share.

The education committee is excited to announce the return of Sunday School activities for our youth, starting on Sunday, Sept. 12th.  The start time for Sunday School will be 9 am. Sunday School activities will be conducted simultaneously with regular church service.  Teachers and assistants will plan lessons and activities for our youth, as well as establishing a connection with the youth and the church service.  Please plan to have children arrive promptly so that activities can begin at 9 am and the daily schedule can be maintained.

Our congregation is serving the community as the local host for American Red Cross blood drives. The first drive resulted in the receipt of 21 pints of blood from 24 presenting donors. This was an outstanding result for a first drive! Many blood donors like to donate regularly. Individuals may donate every 56 days are we are providing the site and opportunity for that to happen. The next blood drive is set for Oct. 20th 12:00 pm – 5:oo pm. Thank you for your support in donating and publicizing the blood drives as we continue to serve the community.
