St. John's Weekly Reminders, August 28

Seamen’s Boxes: St. John’s Presbyterian Women are collecting 2012 calendars, toothpaste, deodorant, shaving cream, nail clippers and lip balm for this year’s Seamen’s boxes. Please deliver them to the church office, Building 2.

Church Offices Closed: St. John’s will be closed on Monday, September 5, in observance of Labor Day. St. John’s staff wishes all a safe and restful holiday.

Night Circle News for Ladies, September 4: It is time for our Women's Bible Study, the tradition known as "Circle" to begin. It was our custom to meet on Tuesday nights but we are now searching for a new meeting time. Bearing this in mind, we would like all interested parties to meet with "Circle 4" on Sunday, September 4, 2011, at The Egg and I Restaurant, 4938 Beechnut in Meyerland at 12:30pm. Our study this year focuses on The Beatitudes, so please join us in food and fellowship as we embark on this year's journey of blessedness!

Presbyterian Women, Tuesday, September 6: All women are invited whether or not planning to be in a PW circle. There will be a short Association business meeting at 10 am followed by an overview of this year’s Bible study by guest Rev. Rhonda Detenbeck. Luncheon will be served. This year the PW will be using the guide “Confessing the Beatitudes” by Margaret Aymer and will explore the Beatitudes as they might have been heard when Jesus spoke them during the time of the Roman Empire. If interested in joining the study, please contact Joann Natratil.

St. John’s Breakfast Club, Saturday, September 10: Come at 8 am as usual for a good breakfast to get you started on your day. At 8:30 Dr. Paul Stimson will be our speaker, and his topic is “Forensic Dentistry.” Make a note, please, that this is the second Saturday of the month, not the first, because of Labor Day weekend. Please come to have fun and fellowship – friends are always welcome! If you need a ride or have other questions, please call Linda Dobbin at 281-778-5348.
