Adult Education this Sunday, October 27th with Father Malloy

 

For Episcopalians, the Book of Common Prayer establishes our standard of belief and practice.  It is the most distinctive thing about us.  It is, moreover, without dispute, a singularly important piece of English literature.  Every edition has both shaped and been shaped by the best of English poetry and prose.  Ask Roman Catholic's what it is to be a member of that Church, and they may well send you to the writings of the Popes and councils, and the thoughts of key theologians like Thomas Aquinas.  Ask a Lutheran what it is to be a member of that Church, and they may well send you to read one of Luther's catechisms or the Augsburg Confession.  Ask an Anglican, though, what it is to be a member of our Communion and we are likely to say:  Come to Church with me on Sunday and see us enact the liturgy according the script in the Book of Common Prayer.  As it is said, we are what we eat.  Episcopalians can say:  We are what we pray.

2014 Stewardship

 

By now you should have received your Stewardship letter for 2014.  If you haven't already done so, please return your 2014 Pledge Card, as the Vestry needs them to make their budget decisions for the upcoming year.  Click here to download of copy of the 2014 Stewardship Letter.

 

Extra pledge cards can be found in the narthex or click here to download or email the office to have one sent to you.

 

Don't forget that you can donate your Stocks to SJOTM. The tax advantages of giving stock, instead of cash, to church can make doing so very worthwhile.  To learn more, please contact Lisa Keenan in the office at 908-766-2282 ext 13 or by email at L.Keenan@SJOTM.org.  We would be happy to accept stock donations for 2013 as form of  pledge payment.

 

All Saints' Day

 

Join us  on Sunday, November 3rd when we will have a joint celebration of Holy Communion with the combined choirs of St. John on the Mountain and St. Bernard's.

  • 8 am Rite I Service,  Chapel 
  • 10 am Rite II Service, Church 
 

Request for Proposals

 

St. John's  Mission Outreach Commission is calling for "Request for Proposals (RFP)" from smaller non-profit organizations in which parishioners are involved.  We are offering grants of $500 -  $2,000 to local charities for which such a sum would be a meaningful donation.  We favor charities that we can support with our time and talent, as well as with funds to help them to build a better organization and reach their goals.

 

The requirements for the RFP are as follows:

  •  The organization must be not-for-profit
  • Small, independent organizations are favored but local chapters of larger organizations may also apply
  • Organizations are encouraged to name specific projects with a cost of around $1,000, although more  general uses will be considered
  •  Each RFP must be sponsored by a parishioner who has knowledge of the organization and who is willing to represent it to the Commission

 

The RFP need not be long but should include the amount of money sought and a brief description of how the money will be used and what the primary sources of funds are for the charity.  A website address should also be included.

 

Submit your RFPs, to the Parish Office, by November 15th for funds to be distributed this year.
