Fond Farewell and Warm Welcome

Members of St. John's Episcopal Church and Guests:

Here is a friendly reminder that this Sunday, July 22nd at 9:30 am we will have a special service with both Rev. Phil and Rev. Chris presiding and celebrating Eucharist.  We will say a fond farewell to Rev. Phil and offer a warm welcome to Rev. Chris.

 Following the service we'll share a salad/sandwich potluck.  Bring your favorite salad-anything from fruit salad to pasta salad- or your favorite sandwich from bologna to tuna fish!  Or if you don't have time to bring anything, that's fine too. Just come and eat with us as I know we'll have plenty!   

 We will also present our beloved clergy with a small gift of appreciation and thanksgiving. 

 I sincerely hope you can join us!

 Audrey Splinter

Vestry/Senior Warden

 

 


 Grace to you and Peace!

Throughout our lives, we seek some kind of meaning. We try to instill purpose in what we do which helps us to transcend the ordinary and seek the extraordinary. In our journey, we seek the companionship of others who share the same values, dreams, and hopes that make for a better community and world.

The people of St. John's Parish are not all alike. We recognize and value the unique quality of each other as beloved children of a gracious God who desires that we share the Good News of Christ's love. In our prayer, work and spiritual growth we experience the profound mystery of faith which draws us closer to the One who makes all things new.

We invite you to join us as we travel this path together. Your presence blesses and enriches our lives. Together we can bring meaning to a broken and hurt world.

For questions and other matters, our office hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Our phone number is 507.388.1969.

News and announcements are published in the Weekly Evangelist; read the most recent issue. 

We especially invite you to join us for worship on Sundays at 9:30 am.
