The Holy Eucharist with Prayers for Healing will take place on Thursday, April 25th at noon in the chapel.  This simple service of prayer, Holy Communion, and the laying on of hands for those who desire it, is an extension of the ministry of the Pastoral Care Committee.  All are welcome. 

Food Bank Staffing  - Saturday, April 27


SJOTM parishioners are scheduled to staff the Food Bank pantry each Saturday in April from 9:45 to noon.  The pantry is located  at the United Reformed Church at 100 West Main Street in Somerville. Work entails interviewing clients, and bagging and distributing groceries.  So far, the youth of the church have covered all of the dates except for April 27th. To sign-up or for more information, please contact Sally Hespe (908) 875-1518 or email   

Handbell Choir - Ringers Needed


Do you love music but consider yourself more of an instrumentalist than a singer?  The Hand Bell Choir of St. John on the Mountain has several openings for ringers.  No prior experience with hand bells is required but reading music is necessary, especially being able to count those naughty half notes, quarter notes and eighth notes!  If you are interested in trying it, please contact  Rick Morgan, Director of Music for more information.

Volunteer to be an Usher

Please consider joining this important ministry.  Greeting people, distributing bulletins, conveying the sacred elements to the altar, and inviting parishioners to partake of Communion are central to our worship services.  No experience needed.  To sign-up or for more information contact Fenn Putman 973-543-7017 or email
