Project Warm Your Heart
The Sunday school and confirmation class are participating in Project Warm Your Heart to collect new or gently-used winter clothing for kids in Somerset County.  Children of families served by the Food Bank Network of Somerset County and other organizations will benefit from this winter-clothing drive.  We are collecting coats, mittens, gloves, scarves, and hats for children. Donations are requested by Monday, October 26, 2015.  There will be a box for donations in the chapel each Sunday morning, or donations can be dropped off in the church office during weekdays. 
Grace Soup Kitchen
Friday, October 31st
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 prepare and serve lunch on the last Friday of each month.  Join us on Friday, October 31st from 10 am - 1 pm at 600 Cleveland Avenue, Plainfield.  For more info or to sign-up please email Graham Argent Belcher.
Baptism 
Sunday, November 1st
We baptize primarily on those dates set aside for baptism, as listed in the Book of Common Prayer.  Since the presence of the community of faith is essential for welcoming the newly baptized into the church, baptisms take place in the principal service on the appointed Sunday. The next day for Baptism is Sunday, November 1st at 10 am.  Questions about baptism?  Please contact Mo. Susan.
