Grace Soup Kitchen 

 Friday, June 26th 

Grace Soup Kitchen serves 1,000 hot nutritious meals the last five days of each month to the hungry of Plainfield.  St. John on the Mountain parishioners help on the last Friday of each month.  Join us one Friday as we prepare and serve lunch. The next day scheduled for St. John on the Mountain to serve is on Friday, June 26th from  10 am - 1 pm.  Please email Graham Argent-Belcher to let him know if plan to attend.

Summer Sunday Service Schedule Begins Sunday, June 28th 

The Summer Sunday service schedule begins next Sunday, June 28th.  We will offer one service - 9:30 am Holy Eucharist, Rite II with music in the Parish Hall and childcare, followed by Lemonade Hour.

Summer Choir 

The Choir of St. John on the Mountain invites you to join us during the summer Sundays of July and August!  Rehearsals are brief, starting at 8:45 am in preparation for the 9:30 am Eucharist.  During that time we will prepare hymns, service music, and a simple anthem for worship.  This is a great way to try the Choir (with no strings attached!) or to simply be a part of the choir if your schedule does not permit doing so during the year.  Middle school and high school students are welcome, too.  No advance notice is required. Just show up on any Sunday morning in the Choir Room at 8:45 am beginning Sunday, June 28th and enjoy the music making!

Lemonade Hour 

Beginning next Sunday, June 28th 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. 

Tend the Memorial Garden 

Thursdays at 4:30 pm in June, July, and August

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

Conover Community Garden Volunteers Needed 

Every Day During the Week of July 4th

Click here to learn more about the Community Garden.  We will be harvesting the tender greens shortly for distribution to the local food pantry.  St. John on the Mountain is scheduled to tend the plots the following weeks:  July 4th, August 29th and September 20th.  Tasks will include weeding, watering and harvesting produce.  If you are interested in helping those weeks or for more information, please email Sally Hespe. 

Summer Baptism 

Sunday, July 12th

We will be celebrating Baptism on Sunday, July 12th at 9:30 am.  Questions about baptism? Please email the office or call 908-766-2282.  After that, the next opportunity (and last date in 2015) for Baptism will be on Sunday, November 1st at 10 am during the All Saints' Sunday service.   Questions about Baptism?  Email Mother Susan.
