This Week on the Mountain
Summer Edition
9:30 am Worship Starts This Sunday

Starting this week, we worship at 9:30 am, and our weekly email goes on vacation, but we will update you over the summer when things come up, of course.

We know that like our weekly email, many of you are on vacation.  When you are around, please join us for worship on Sundays at 9:30 am.  Our summer worship will be in the Church, and will be more relaxed and shorter, inviting us all to gather together and then enjoy the warm weekend afternoons.  We will even provide you with lemonade, and you can fill us in on all your summer adventures!  

For those Sundays that Mo. Susan is away on summer vacation, we will welcome
Mo. Diane Pike, Sr. Barbara Jean, and Mo. Kay Locke as our priests. We are grateful to 
them as they preach and preside at worship at the summer services.

Have a very happy summer!

Upcoming Events

Billy Webster's Last Sunday
Sunday, June 26
After a great program year, Billy Webster will be leaving us this week to spend more time with his family.  We are grateful for his ministry of preaching, pastoral care, outreach, and confirmation class. Please join us on Sunday when Billy will preach for us, and we can thank him for his sharing in our common life.
Healing Prayers This Sunday
This Sunday, members of the Pastoral Care team will be offering healing prayers in the worship service, for any who desire wholeness for themselves or someone they love.  Healing prayer is an ancient tradition and all are invited to participate. 

Heavenly Father, giver of life and health: Comfort
and relieve your sick servants, and give your power
of healing to those who minister to their needs,
that those for whom our prayers are offered may be
strengthened in their weakness and have confidence
in your loving care; through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever

God's Giving Garden
It's our week to tend the garden!   SJOTM is responsible for weeding, harvesting and delivery June 25th - July 1st.   Sign up online if you are available this week, and we will be in touch about work dates and times. Or call Sally Hespe for more info at (908) 875-1518.
If you are unable to garden, we also need the following: 
  • TOMATO CAGES, preferably large, new or used.
Please come and help and have some fun in the fresh air! The garden is located at the Boudinot-Ross Estate, 30 North Maple Avenue, Basking Ridge.

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 Parish Hall at 8:45 am beginning Sunday, June 26th and enjoy the music making!

Lemonade Hour 

Beginning this Sunday, June 26th 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. 

Summer Office Hours
Beginning July 5th, the office hours will be Monday - Thursday 
9 am - 1 pm.
