New Sunday School starts August 31

New Sunday School Class, August 31: Everyone is welcome to attend a new Sunday morning class, Falling in Love with God, facilitated by Lynne Parsons Austin.When asked what the greatest commandment of all was, Jesus quoted from the book of Deuteronomy: “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind”. If you have ever felt like you fall short of this goal or have wondered if it was really possible at all, then this class is for you. One of the goals of this class is to discover a deeper, more balanced life with God. We will explore ways to accomplish this by reading The Good and Beautiful God by James Bryan Smith. Books will be available for purchase at the Church office next week. Come join us each Sunday morning from 9 am until 10 am. All are welcome.

July 20 Sunday Insert Reminders

“Wonder Team” Sandwich Makers, Wednesday, July 23: The twice-a-month sandwich making needs additional volunteers for the summer program. Vacation schedules are keeping the worker count down a bit and we need a little help. There are 3 more opportunities this summer: July 23, August 13 & August 27. Please consider helping us for about an hour and a half, starting at 6 pm. The hungry kids will thank you a lot. And Jesus did say, "Feed my flock." This is one way that we do just that.

Sweet Dreams: Don’t forget our on-going Mustard Seed project for Houston’s Covenant House. St. John’s is hoping to provide 16 twin bed comforters for their new facility which will provide homeless children, 10 to 17 years old, a place to stay. There is a donation box outside the office, on the coffee table.


St. John’s Book Group, Thursday, July 24: Everyone is welcome to join the discussion and review of Section 3 of The Hole in Our Gospel: What Does God expect
of Us?
by Richard Stearns. Mr. Stearns is President of World Vision.
