St. John's Weekly Reminder, October 17

Today we welcome to our worship service the Rev. David Wells from the Seafarers Ministry.

Beacon Newsletter Assemblers: The October/November issue will be assembled on Tuesday, October 19 at 12:30 pm in Room 203. No experience is necessary.

Trunk-or-Treat: St. John’s will host a fall festival on October 31 at 4 pm, inviting the local community. Car trunks and volunteers are needed! Please contact Mary Sterner for more information.

Advent Booklet Deadline November 7: Writers and artists are needed for St. John’s Advent 2010 Devotional Booklet. This year the booklet will focus on a Christmas carol, why it is important and what memories, feelings and emotions are present as we sing or listen to the carol. (Please limit your writing to approximately three paragraphs or less.) Please see Mary Sterner or Pam Tedeschi if interested.

Stewardship Dedication Sunday, November 7: Mark your calendar for this special day. Please bring your pledge card to the Worship service and then stay for the catered barbecue dinner.

Nov. 7 Crop Walk: Crop Hunger Walk is just around the corner! Crop Walk is a community-wide event to raise funds to end hunger at home and around the world. If you are interested in walking or donating to Crop Walk, please stop by the table in the walkway after church.

Volunteers Needed: The Evangelism Committee runs the after-church coffee, juice, and snacks but can't do it without the help of some special volunteers. There is nothing to buy; we just need volunteers to help serve, preferably two, and return the trays and snacks to McPhail Hall. Evangelism will purchase and keep a supply of snacks in McPhail Hall. If you are interested, please contact Kathleen Captain.

Carpet available: St. John’s has a piece of new carpet from the Building 2 classrooms about 9 feet by 10 ½ feet that needs a new home. Please talk to or email Bobby Hughes at for more information.

Coffee Cans Needed: The Outreach Committee is collecting coffee cans to be used at the Holiday Gift Market. Please deliver to the box outside the church office.
