Dear People of Saint John’s,

I want to take this opportunity to thank two people on our communications team, who ensure that the online world knows about us. Sandra Hutchison faithfully keeps up the Facebook page, posting upcoming events and parish pictures, and alerting us to messages that have come to us through Facebook. Don Lansing keeps our Webpage up to date, ensuring that upcoming events are publicized, that online worship is made accessible. Both Sandy and Don ensure that the parish is presented in a most inviting light. Kudos and gratitude to them both!

Mark your calendars for two parish events: The Women of Saint Paul’s have invited us to their third annual Strawberry Social, on Sunday, June 25th. This will replace coffee hour that day. The Parish Picnic, provided through the gracious hospitality of Doc Lisa Thorn and Mike Hanna, will be on Saturday, July 29th. More details will follow.

Jennifer Firth is coordinating a parish trip to Amish country, Wednesday and Thursday, September 13-14, where we will see the Sight and Sound Theater production of “Moses” and visit Longwood Gardens. Flyers are available in the Narthex.

At Saint John’s, we have great Bible Studies: On Sunday Eileen Manz continue her series on Jesus and Women at 9 a.m. in the Library using resources from biblical scholar Kenneth Bailey, and on Tuesday, Gail Richardson continues her study on the book of Acts, which has been called the Christian adventure book of the Bible, on Zoom. Be in touch with the office for the link. On Saturdays at 10:30 I lead a group that view episodes from “The Chosen,” the crowd-funded series on the life of Jesus Christ.

God bless you all, 

Mtr. Judith
