From the Pastor
A classic George Gershwin song declares, “Summertime, and the livin' is easy…” Summer is a time
when we enjoy taking it easy. School is out. Sunny days outnumber the cloudy ones. Campgrounds
re-open. The cabin awaits. Vacations beckon us.
When we travel during the summer, we may find ourselves visiting other faith communities for
worship. Excellent! Enjoy those experiences. Or we may find ourselves in remote areas far removed
from any church building or faith community. We at St. John certainly miss those who are not present
with us in worship each week. To help maintain our connectedness and facilitate worship for families
who are traveling, we’ve created a resource for you to use during your travels. If you are on the road
and unable to worship with a faith community, then worship God in the woods, in the car or wherever
you are! Copies of a summer travel order of worship are available in the rear of the sanctuary and in
the church office.
For those staying put, staycations are great, too! And we at St. John are by no means “taking it easy”
this summer. There are many exciting opportunities to worship and serve: We will recognize our
graduates and have a summer kick-off party complete with a bounce house on June 5th. On June 12th
we will send several of our youth off to confirmation camp. On the 19th of June we will pray for
blessings upon our group heading out on a mission trip that week.
During July we will worship and fellowship together in the park on July
10th. Vacation Bible School will be happening the first week of August.
So many things are happening! And of course we hope to see you for
midweek evening prayer on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month and
at Sunday worship at 9:00 AM.
May God continue to bless you abundantly this summer. See you in
church!
Blessings,
Pastor Marilyn

LWR Donations
Keep in mind when spring
cleaning that the quilters can
put to good use light weight blankets, soft mattress pads,
and good used sheets, preferably colored sheets.
These are used as fillers and backs on LWR quilts.
We are still collecting bars of soap thru September.
This is a big need for LWR.
Thank you,
Quilting Angels
Eucharistic Ministers bring
communion to our homebound
members and those in the hospital.
Bringing the sacrament to those
unable to be present with us in
worship reminds them of their
connection to our faith community. These visits,
prayers, and sharing of the sacrament are rewarding
and meaningful to all who receive visits as well as
those visiting.
We would welcome more Eucharistic Ministers as our
list of homebound and hospitalized members is ever
evolving. Training will be provided on Tuesday, June
21 at 1:00 PM or on Tuesday, July 19 at 1:00 PM.
Please contact Pastor Marilyn or the church office if
you are interested in attending one of these sessions.
