This Week on the Mountain
The Third Sunday after Pentecost
June 17th

Father's Day
Join us for worship and prayer this Sunday, when we give thanks for the gift of fatherhood and pray for those who have been called into the holy vocation of caring for children and honoring parents.

For all fathers, step-fathers, grandfathers, and uncles.  For those who have been hurt by their fathers, and those who strive to be loving fathers.  For those who miss and long for their fathers this morning, and for those fathers who long for their children, we pray to you, O Lord.

Lord, hear our prayer.


Summer Office Hours
Beginning Monday, June 18th the office will be switching to summer hours.  We will be open Monday - Thursday, 8 am - 1 pm.  The office will be closed on Fridays.

Lemonade Hour
Beginning Sunday, June 17th we will be having Lemonade Hour, immediately following the  10 am service.  Hosts are needed.  It's easy; all you need to bring is a small treat as the lemonade is provided by the church.  A sign-up sheet is located on the bulletin board outside of Parish Hall.  Weather permitting, Lemonade Hour will take place outside in the front courtyard.  Beginning July 1st, Lemonade Hour will immediately follow the 9:30 am service.
 
Summer Sundays on the Mountain                  July 1st - September 2nd

The summer worship schedule will begin Sunday, July 1st. Throughout the summer months, there will be one service on Sundays; Rite II, Holy Eucharist with music in the Church at 9:30 am. 

  

Professional Nursery Care will be offered on Sunday mornings from 9:15 am-10:45 am in Room 2 of the lower level.

 

A simple Lemonade Hour will immediately follow the service.

 
Summer Choir

The Choir of St. John on the Mountain invites you to join us during the summer Sundays of July and August!  Rehearsals are brief, starting at 8:45 AM in preparation for the 9:30 AM Eucharist.  During that time we will prepare hymns, service music and a simple anthem for worship.

 

This is a great way to try the Choir (with no strings attached!) or to simply be a part of the choir if your schedule does not permit during the year.

 

No advance notice is required.  Just show up on any Sunday morning in the Choir Room at 8:45 beginning July 3rd and enjoy the music making!
