Wine Tasting Fundraiser

Friday, June 7th

Sip into Summer


Please join us on Friday, June 7th for our Wine Tasting 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 June 3rd.

One Worship Service at 10 am on Sunday, June 23rd 


We will have one service on Sunday, June 23rd at 10 am so we can gather, worship, and celebrate as a united community.  Plan to join us for a Parish Picnic immediately following the service.  Please bring a salad, side dish, or dessert to share.

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.  Refreshments provided.  Community Service hours will be given.


Lemonade Hour


Beginning Sunday, June 30th there will be a Lemonade Hour, immediately following the 9:30 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.
