This Sunday we welcome Dee Heinmuller Zeller from the Diocese of Easton as our guest preacher.  Dee is the Executive Director of Camp Wright, a ministry of the Diocese of Easton on the Eastern shore of the Chesapeake in Maryland and has worked for the Episcopal Church since 1998 as a youth minister and then camp director.  She has a Masters in Social Work, and a passion for the Christian development of children and youth.  We are privileged to welcome her and learn from her on the day our young people celebrate Souper Bowl Sunday!

Simple Suppers

The Tradition Continues 

Simple Suppers returns to St. John on the Mountain.  For those that are new to the parish, Simple Suppers is a long standing tradition at SJOTM. This is a wonderful opportunity to make new friends and spend time with old ones.  Groups of 10-12 will be formed the week of February 9th. These Simple Suppers need not be only dinner, but can also be brunch, lunch, or cocktails.  Generally, each group meets about twice during the bleak months of February and March.  It's easy to participate.  Sign-up through February 8th by filling out a Simple Suppers form and placing it in the box located in the hallway near Parish Hall or contact the Parish Office 908-766-2282.  Questions?  Contact Sue Catlett or Jane Mercer.

Kids Helping Kids Thank You Notes

Thank you to everyone who helped with the Kids Helping Kids Christmas campaign.  This week, you should have received a personalized letter with a receipt for your donation enclosed.  We want to thank the Rite 13 Class for all their help getting this mailing out to you.   With so many helpers, there is a chance that the dollar figure noted did not correctly reflect the actual donation.  If so, just e-mail Katherine Hermes and let her know and the correction will be made.
