Mountain Art Show Needs Your Help


Please join us on Friday, April 25 at 10:30 am in the Parish Hall to stuff, seal, label, and stamp 1,000+ envelopes for the artist prospectus. Any amount of time you can give us will be helpful. You know the old saying..."Many hands make light work!" No experience necessary! Refreshments will be provided. 





 We are excited to announce that we have begun the process of creating a new parish photo directory and need your help.  Please take the time to send us your updated contact information and a recent picture of your family.  The new directory will help us to connect names with faces.  The photo directory will be produced in-house allowing us to update it monthly.  


Please participate!  Kindly email with: your name, and those of your family members, your physical address, home and cell phone #s, an email, and a recent digital picture of your family.


Thanks for helping us achieve this within the next 2 months.

St. John's Intergenerational Choir Rehearsal on Sunday, April 27th


We will be preparing an anthem to sing on Sunday, May 4th.  As it was at Christmas, the SJIC is open to everyone; children, adults, parents, aunts, uncles, friends and significant others!  Those of you who are not already in the choir may simply come forward to join the choir during the exchange of the Peace (no vestments needed) and then return to your seats in the congregation following the anthem.  Rehearsals will be about 20 minutes following the services on Sunday, April 27th.  Music will be available at those rehearsals or can be emailed to you directly.  We hope you will join us.
