We will be having a pot luck lunch and community conversation to discuss the report from the Sabbatical Leadership Committee.
Zoom attendance will be available, but we hope to see you all in person!!!
There will be a summary of all the discernment conversations coming out later this week for your review.
This will be an opportunity for everybody to give their feedback, ask questions and be a part of our future at St. John’s.
We hope to see you there!!

Discretionary Fund Needs
A message from Deacon Zarina
The Discretionary Fund, which is used for emergency assistance for basic needs (food, gas, housing and transportation), has been depleted, and the needs continue apace. During 2020 and 2021, the calls for assistance were much lower because of all the federal and state assistance available for housing, utilities and food assistance. We also had a very generous donation to the fund in 2020. But federal and state emergency assistance is no longer available, and inflation is hitting people.Please consider a donation to the church earmarked for the discretionary fund. You may put in a check in the offering basket, mail one in, or donate online. Just be sure to mark that it is for the discretionary fund.

Sabbatical Gathering Offerings
An invitation during Sabbatical time has been given to St. John’s parishioners to explore what gift(s) the spirit is offering us as we “Break open the Word of God”. A variety of gatherings give us the opportunity for rest, renewal, and resurrection as we spend time together to discuss this theme in small groups.
Please consider attending one or all of the offerings as you may. More will be offered in August, September, and October.
