Why Sunday Fellowship?
The Merriam–Webster online dictionary defines a fellowship as a “community of interest, activity, feeling, or experience,” and “a company of equals or friends.”
God designed His church to be a fellowship, not just a community, but a family of brothers and sisters who share God’s ideals and beliefs, and who can help us improve ourselves.
The importance of fellowship in our lives is part of the reason that the people of God are commanded to consider one another in order to stir up love and good works. Every week, on Sunday, Christians gather both to hear the Word of God taught and to strengthen each other through fellowship.
Sunday Fellowship at St. John’s requires your participation. We are the Church. Please consider signing up for one Sunday during the year to make coffee and serve donuts to your fellow members so that we can meet, get to know each other and focus on God’s desires and goals for us.
There is a calendar in the Church kitchen, pick a Sunday to do your part as a member of the St. John’s community.
Our quilting ladies have been working on “Walker Bags” for residents of area nursing homes. They are also making them available to members of our congregation. You will find a basket full of these colorful and handy fabric bags in the Narthex. Please feel free to take one for yourself or someone you know.
