SPECIAL THANK YOU to St. John’s Community

For the last seven years, it has honestly been a pleasure to be a part of the staff of St. John’s. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the hugs, gifts, and especially the heartfelt messages/cards given to me. I know that I have friendships that will last a lifetime. – Laura McGoveran

SUMMER HYMN SINGS – July, August, & September

There are three remaining Hymn Sings this summer and will take place on the
first weekends of July, August & September. The congregation will be asked to call out their favorite hymns.
There is a hymn index on page 1205 in the back of the red hymnal to help you find hymn page numbers and titles.
Let us sing our praises boldly to God!


You are invited to share your musical talent during the Offering time of worship on Sunday mornings this summer.
