Where Tradition Meets Tomorrow
Ministry Procession and Parish Breakfast - October 3
Please join us for a Ministry Procession being held during both services on Sunday, October 3. We decided to skip the Ministry Fair this year as it involves a large, indoor gathering. We will have our ministries process in, however, as the services begin. The breakfast, served by the Chefs of St. John, will be eaten outside and will include bacon, sausage, eggs, grits, gravy, fruit salad, potatoes, biscuits, pancakes, and juice/coffee/tea. The breakfast is free! Please sign up here by Wednesday, September 29, to aid in planning. Hope to see you there!
Blessing of the Animals - October 3
We will offer a blessing of the Animals on Sunday, October 3, at 4 p.m. in the Rector’s Garden. Furry and feathered companions are welcome for a special blessing. Cats, dogs, snakes, chickens, horses, and goats are all welcome! Children may also bring a stuffed animal to be blessed. Please bring your own chairs to our outdoor meeting space. It will be a lively Eucharist for all creatures involved. We hope you will join us.
Blessing of the Pledges and UTO Boxes - October 10
Bring your pledge forms and UTO Boxes to either service this Sunday for a special blessing. You can pledge online here. If you pledge before this date, then we will bring your pledges to the altar to be blessed.
Fall Fellowship Festival at Falling Creek - October 10
Mark your calendars to join us from 2-5 p.m. at Falling Creek for food, live music, and games. Please sign up here to join in the fun!
Tuesday Summer Enrichment Gathering
The Summer Gathering has returned on Tuesdays in the Wilderness Room. This summer, because of the changes in routine we encountered in 2020, we will be exploring the “Years that Changed History: 1215” led by Dr. Dorsey Armstrong of Purdue University. It gives a brief history of the world a little more than 800 years ago, a world we wouldn’t recognize today.
Each session will begin at 5:30 p.m. with light refreshments brought by those attending. At about 6 p.m. we will view a short video followed by a discussion of what we had seen. The gathering will conclude at about 7 p.m. For more information about this program, contact the Church Office.
Bible Study Groups
Women's Bible Study and Men's Bible Study groups are now meeting. For more information, please call the Church Office.
