We are sad to report the death of Denis Woodfield, father of Katherine Hermes, and grandfather to Carter, Abigail, and Devon.  The funeral will be held this Saturday at 4:00 at SJOTM, and all are welcome.  Please keep the Woodfield family in your prayers.  May he rest in peace, and rise in glory. 


A Message to All Our Young Singers 1st Grade through 8th Grade -

Treble Choir Rehearsals on Sundays Starting This Sunday, April 21st

Yes, it is finally spring!  With that comes so many activities it is hard to keep track of when they all meet!  In that spirit, the Treble Choir invites you to meet with us each Sunday morning immediately following the 10 am worship service.  As soon as the organ voluntary is finished, Mr. Morgan will meet you in the Choir Room for a half hour musical rehearsal. This is our opportunity not only to sing and enjoy being together - it is our opportunity to give something wonderful back to St. John's and to God!  

Summer Camp at SJOTM July 15 - 19


Children ages 3 - rising third graders are invited to join us at the Everywhere Fun Fair:  Where God's World Comes Together this summer from 9:30am-12pm on July 15-19th.  We will be learning, creating, and having fun! Volunteers are also needed to make this program a success. Click here for a registration form.  Email for more information.
