» Summer at St. John’s

Posted on: May 29, 2019

Music


Sing with the Choir this Summer

Help lead the congregation in the hymns and service music. Beginning June 16, any Sunday you’d like to sing with the choir, come to the music room by 9am to rehearse that day’s music. It’s a great opportunity to try out choir for the first time, or simply to add your voice to the chorus glorifying God. Form more information, or any questions, contact Richard Gray at richard.gray@stjohnsstpaul.org.

 

Giving

School Tools

Every year, St. John’s partners with Interfaith Action to collect school supplies for hundreds of local children from families in poverty or experiencing homelessness. From July 14-August 18 we will collect donations of new school supplies. More information will be available in church.

You can also help with a financial donation. Make checks payable to Interfaith Action with “School Tools” in the memo line.

For more information, contact Holly Weinkauf at betterwein@gmail.com.

 

Farmers’ Market

All summer, we’ll host farmers from our companion parish Holy Apostles, Sunday mornings from 9am-12pm in our parking lot. It features fresh produce and flowers and also supports Fields to Families, a project providing fresh, local produce to area food shelves.

To help as a greeter or by delivering produce after the market to First Nations Kitchen, click here.

 

Community

Connect Meals

St. John’s Summer Connect Meals are back by popular demand. As our St John’s community continues to grow in numbers, so does our need to grow deeper in community with each other. A number of families have graciously agreed to host small-group gatherings throughout the summer so newer and older members alike can better get to know one another over a delicious meal.

Come to eat together, share stories, and connect with old and new friends. Click here to signup now, or contact Lea Anne Schmidt at leaanne.schmidt@stjohnsstpaul.org with any questions.


Parish Picnic

St. John’s parish picnic will be Sunday, August 4 at 10am at Lake Phalen Pavilion (1600 Phalen Dr., St. Paul). We’ll join our companion parish Holy Apostles for outdoor worship, baptisms, and picnic lunch. The churches will provide main dishes; please bring a side dish or dessert to share with 10-12 people. Also, please bring outdoor games if you have them.
