The GIFT of Mission: Making College Care Packages!

Sunday, October 29th, we are going to have an intergenerational activity in the Community Room during the 10:15 GIFT hour. We would love for everyone to attend…young children through adults!

We will be working side-by- side, talking, laughing and getting to know each other better, while making care packages to send to the college students in our St. Johns’ community.  The packages will be mailed just in time for their final exams.

If you would like to contribute to this ministry, we will have a collection bucket at the back of the church for monetary donations October 15th , 22nd , and 29th . The donations will be used to pay for a gift card for each student and to defray the cost of postage.

This Sunday

  • Ellen Brandon will be playing at 9:00 worship this coming Sunday.
  • Eric Wilson will be worship leading at 11:00 worship. 
  • Readings; Deuteronomy 30.11-20, Luke 4.14-21
  • Sermon Series: Whata’ We Doing Here?: The Mechanics & Meaning Of Worship
