Thank you to everyone who helped with Christmas preparations at St. John’s. Our worship services were filled with beauty and inspiration. As a congregation, we also touched the lives of many, many people beyond our walls by our gifts to Heritage Health through the “Angel Tree” project, and our other outreach ministries.
Pastor Ken & Yvonne and the entire St. John’s staff gives thanks to all of you for the cards, gifts and Christmas blessings so generously poured out during this holiday season! We appreciate you and pray for God’s leadership and guidance for a wonderful new year of ministry together!
St. John's Prayer Chain Ministry
The prayer chain has been very active these last several months and we are grateful for all of you who participate and offer your prayer support to those going through difficult times. If anyone else would like to join the prayer chain, please contact the church office. The prayer chain is conducted primarily through group text messages with a few members receiving information by a phone call.
