Coffee and Conversation
Thursday, March 22 from 10:30 to 11:30 am in Shears Hall
St. John’s history will be the special topic of this month’s gathering. We will gather for coffee, snacks, a short program, and conversation. Bring your appetites and your memories! We especially welcome those who cannot make it to church regularly, and will be matching those who need rides with those who can offer them. Please contact the Reverend Kristine Johnson if you are interested in attending, if you need a ride, or if you can offer a ride.
Fellowship Sunday and Sandwich Sunday
Palm Sunday - March 25 from 10:15 to 11:00 am in Shears Hall
Join us for this Sunday free from adult programming where people can socialize with each other during the education hour. It is also Sandwich Sunday so people can either socialize while making sandwiches or can just have coffee and socialize. Volunteers who worship at 7:45 am will prepare the ingredients after the service. Sandwiches will be made in Shears Hall following the 9:00 am service. All hands are welcome for this outreach ministry to feed the hungry through Martha’s Table in Washington, D.C. Learn more about Martha's Table.

Pilgrimage to Northern England
In summer of 2018 our faith journey will continue, this time to Northern England. The Reverend Justin Ivatts will be leading a group August 4–11, continuing our quest to discover our religious identity as Anglicans by engaging with sacred sites in England that help to tell the story of Anglicanism. We will visit sites to include York Minster, Durham Cathedral, Whitby Abbey (including a train ride with lunch on board), The Holy Island of Lindisfarne and many more. Learn more HERE.
