Worship Seating Reminder for indoor Worship
To allow for social distancing, please sit in every other pew.  To help you quickly identify which pews are available for seating, a green ribbon is taped on each end of the pew.  As you are searching for an available seat, remember to leave space in the pew between you and others who are not in your “safe bubble group”.  The pews that need to remain empty, to allow for social distancing, have a note on the seat cushion reminding us to leave the pew empty.  In the respect for all who worship at St. John, thank you for complying with this seating plan.  

St. John CPR Classes:  BLS class is Oct. 3 after Church. The Heart saver class, Oct. 10 after church; Heart Saver Oct. 17, after Church. Contact Erin Slates if you need CPR sooner for work or have any questions.

St. John Book Club will begin their next book, Journey to the Well: 12 Lessons on Personal Transformation (Compass) by Bishop Vashti M. McKenzie. We would love for you to join us on Aug 5 at 7:00 PM.  Contact Erin Slates with questions.

This brings the total Sundries kits to 185 and the hat, socks and gloves to over 200. Thanks for the over-the-top support St. John has been giving to the less fortunate in our community’s !!”
