Picnic For the Sharing Community

Jesus said when you throw a party invite those who cannot return the favor and you will receive blessing from God.  This year St. John's scheduled two Parish Picnics.  The first one we had was the parish picnic held in July for those who worship and participate regularly in the life of St. John's.  The Second one is this next Sunday, August 24, and we are joining the Sharing Community to have a picnic on the grounds with the people who go there for lunch each day.  We welcome volunteers to help us with tables and to serve food.  We will begin setting up after the service at 11AM  and will be breaking down the tables at about 1:30 PM.  To volunteer call (914)963-3033.  We we also welcome prayers.

Grace Abounds at our One Day Bible School

We joined earth to heaven, and heaven to earth as we learned the story of Jacob and the ladder of his dream during our One Day Bible School this last Tuesday, July 15 at St. John's Church.  Nine students, three assistants, and three teachers, sang, prayed, learned stories, made art, visited the Malotz Skilled Nursing Pavillion, went to a park, and last but not least, learned to sing "Jesus loves the little children" in American Sign Language.  You can see hear much more at church on Sunday, July 20 at the 10AM service.  Meanwhile enjoy this brief video with a foretaste of the song!

St. John's Serves the Community!

Yesterday was our first week to help serve the meal at the Sharing Community.  Well, not actually.  Back in the day it was members of the congregation who started serving meals as part of a ministry that eventually formed into the Sharing Community, but it is really nice that we have reformed that connection.  Diane Irving has been great to get it organized and we had an enthusiastic first go.

This is a great thing for St. John's.  It is a way for us to actively put into practice what we learn in the liturgy God calls us to do!

Announcing Faith Friends

Do you remember the song we used to sing called "They will know we are Christians by our Love".  Because we want to make this true at St. John's a team of people have organized a new ministry called Faith Friends.  Here is an excerpt from the Informational Flyer.

"What is Faith Friends?  Faith Friends is a way for us to express our care for one another and to remember to pray for one another.  In the recent past a weekly rhythm of life was the norm, and people showed their care for each other when they gathered at church.  Today life follows different rythms.  It is harder to depend on the weekly gathering in order to stay in touch.   Faith Friends enables us to care for one another even when we do not see each other every week.  We commit to pray and make regular contact with one another whether at church, by telephone, or some other way.  This allows us to both receive and give spiritual care during the week as well."

You can read the whole document Here.  If you would like to be part of this Exciting Ministry you can sign up here.   Our First Faith Friends Lunch will be Sunday, March 30!
