Join us for Gathering Sunday, a day full of celebration that marks the return of fun events and programming for the whole parish. It is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with your church family and introduce friends and neighbors to the community of St. John’s.
Blessing of the Backpacks
We will be doing a “Blessing of the Backpacks” for all our youth and others going back to school this fall. Not just for children — college students and nontraditional students are welcome, too! Bring your backpack and school supplies to be blessed during the 10am service before the Peace.
Stop by the tables and booths set up in the gymnasium after the 10 am service to get to know your St. John’s neighbors and learn what each ministry at St. John’s is doing throughout the program year. We are also very excited this year to welcome many of our community partner organizations. Come meet them and learn about St. John’s work with those in our neighborhood!
Following the 10am worship service, concurrent with the Ministry Fair, please join us in the gymnasium for the annual potluck. If your last name begins with A-O, please bring a side dish; P-Z, please bring a dessert.
