» Companions in Transformation: Our Season of Renewal

Posted on: May 17, 2018

This summer will be a season of rest and renewal for our community, to prepare St. John’s for the next season of engaged ministry. We will share meals and listen deeply to one another’s stories in order to discern God’s call for our next step in ministry together.

LEAVE-TAKING CELEBRATION
SUNDAY, MAY 27
We will celebrate the upcoming summer sabbatical for both St. John’s and our rector as we send off Jered Weber-Johnson and his family with our prayers and best wishes.

SERMON SERIES: STORIES OF RENEWAL
SUNDAYS BEGINNING JUNE 3
During our season of sabbatical, we will welcome guest preachers, some from St. John’s and some from the wider community, preaching on the Lessons of the Day and on renewal.
Preachers for the month of June will be:
June 3: The Rev. Susan Moss
June 10: The Rev. Neil Elliott
June 17: The Rev. Barbara Mraz
June 24: Ollin Montes

SABBATH DINNERS
ALL SUMMER LONG
Small-group meals, a chance to pause and connect with old and new friends.
To sign up: visit www.tinyurl.com/SJEsabbath or use the signup sheets in the back of the church over the summer.

COFFEE CONNECTIONS
SUNDAYS IN JUNE
Want to know your fellow parishioners better, one-on-one? Put your name in the hat!  During the month of June there will be a drawing at every service to pair two random parishioners who will then have the chance to meet for coffee, lunch, or happy hour in the following week.

ICE CREAM SOCIAL
SUNDAY, JULY 15
Following 10am worship, come to the parking lot for a coffee hour that hits your summer sweet spot. Instead of the usual coffee and cookies, we’ll add ice cream and games for a relaxing but fun way to connect after church.

BRUNCH BUNCH
SUNDAYS IN AUGUST
During the month of August St. John’s parishioners are invited to join together for brunch and conversation every Sunday following services. A new restaurant and a new experience await each week. No need to sign up ahead of time. Just come to church and put your name on the list!
