Trinity Sunday


Spring Fundraiser

Save the date:  Friday, June 7th

Sip into Summer


Please save Friday, June 7th on your calendar for our Spring fundraiser - SIP into SUMMER - at Ravine Lake Club from 6:30 - 9:00 pm. Come and taste wonderful wines as recommended by 56 Degree Wine, paired with great food selections. There will also be a silent auction, a giving tree, and the opportunity to buy artisan pottery, glass, and jewelry from Talaverica.  Click here to view the invitation.



Silent Auction Items Needed


A key part of the fun and festivities, of the Sip into Summer Wine Tasting Fundraiser, is the silent auction, featuring goods and services provided by the members of St. John's congregation.  It is our hope that folks will make donations of all kinds to support this endeavor.


 Here are some ideas and suggestions:

* A vacation home for a week or weekend

* A ride to and from the airport

* A dinner party, catered by one or more of St. John's famous chefs

* Babysitting

* Dog training

* A day at the Lake Club

* A foursome at one of the local golf clubs

* A picnic basket

* A Collection of Wine

* Tickets to an event

* A gift certificate

* Etc., etc.

Be creative! We know you have special skills and talents.


To donate (or for more information) please email Bob Courtemanche or Merritt Lewis by May 31st.


Tend the Garden


Stop by to tidy up the Memorial Garden and surround every Thursday at 4:30 pm.   Giving a little of your time by sweeping, weeding, and such will help to keep this lovely area at its best.


Grace's Soup Kitchen May 30th


St. John on the Mountain will help prepare and serve lunch on Friday, May 30th from 10 am - 1 pm.  Sign-up sheets are on bulletin board outside next to the parish hall or contact Sally Hespe


Lemonade Hour


Beginning Sunday, June 30th there will be a Lemonade Hour, immediately following the 10:00 am service (and following the 9:30 am service starting July 2nd).  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.  

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!
