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.

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 rwhughe@oplink.net for more information.
