St. John's Holiday Schedule

St. John's Presbyterian Church campus will be closed Thursday, December 25, and Friday, December 26, for the Christmas holiday. The office will also be closed Thursday, January 1, and Friday, January 2, for New Year's. Your church staff wishes you a very enjoyable and healthy holiday season.

St. John's Sock Trees

Two Christmas trees (one in the Narthex and one outside the church office) are in need of their holiday decorations – socks! Children's socks infant to kindergarten size are needed. St. John's Presbyterian Women will deliver the socks to the House of Tiny Treasures and Small Steps Nurturing Center.

Welcome Steven Leach

Our own Steven Leach, now a student at Princeton Seminary, will preach on December 28. We welcome him home for Christmas and appreciate him filling the pulpit. Pastor Jon will be away from December 28-31. Pastor Scott Harbison from St. Luke's Presbyterian Church will be on call to provide pastoral care to St. John's members during this time.
