Souper Bowl Sunday is Feb. 2

 

Please join St. John’s youth in making our Souper Bowl Sunday a success!  A variety of hot, delicious soup will be available after the service on Feb. 2.  Stop by for a bowl and chat with fellow members, or take a bowl home for the “big game”!  All donations will benefit local food banks. 

Our worship for February will take place on Thursday, February 13th, at 6:30 p.m.
Rejoicing Spirits was founded on the belief that all people should have the opportunity to explore faith and spirituality. It is an adaptive worship service to provide people with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to worship in a 'shush-free' environment.

Lenten Bible School

For Children 3-10 years old 

Journey with Jesus           

This Lenten season, encourage your children, grandchildren, and friends and neighbors who are 3 to 10 years old, to participate in a Journey with Jesus.  This special Bible School program will take the children through Holy week with Jesus, preparing them for Easter Sunday.  On three Sunday afternoons in March, children will have the chance to learn about Jesus’ Palm Sunday ride in Jerusalem, the Last Supper, and Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane.  There will be stories, games, crafts and music.  At the end of each program, a light supper will be served where families can join in the meal as well.

When? 

Sunday, March 1, 3-5PM (please arrive around 2:30PM to complete any registration paperwork) – The Palm Sunday Ride

Sunday, March 15, 3-5PM – The Last Supper

Sunday, March 29, 3-5PM – Praying in the Garden of Gethsemane

What is the Cost?  There is no cost for this Lenten Bible School but the donation of a canned good each time you come will help us help the community.


What do I do if I want a child to participate?  Pre-registration is encouraged to make sure we have enough materials and food, and are aware of any allergies.  Also, younger children should be able to use the bathroom independently.  If family members are coming to the light supper, make sure you indicate this as well.  Call the church office between the hours of 9AM-4PM, Monday-Friday, at 570-524-7606, by Monday, February 24.
THE "COFFEE CAFE" IS OPEN! - St. John's is offering a self-serve cart with coffee for adults, drinks for children, and a little snack.  Arrive by 9:30 a.m. and you'll have an opportunity to chat with others in an unhurried way before the start of worship.  It is planned to continue with this extra treat on Sunday mornings every week, thanks to our  Hospitality & Growth Committee.
