There will be a congregational forum this Palm Sunday at 9:45 am in the Fellowship Hall.  This will be a time for questions/answers and discussion of the 2013 proposed budget changes.

A Special Congregational Meeting is scheduled for April 7 at 9:45 am in the Fellowship Hall where a vote will be taken at that time to adopt the 2013 budget.  Please plan on attending these important budget meetings.

Busy Spring Season at St. John's

We are once again in that very busy time of year and enjoying the season of spring!  The church activities are picking up speed as the temperatures warm, so be sure to watch for announcements here as well as in the printed bulletin announcements and facebook posts.  We try to keep everyone up to date!  The Holy Week schedule is as follows:
     Maundy Thursday services @ 12 noon and 7:30 pm
     Good Friday worship at 12 noon and Tenebrae Service (service of shadows) @ 7:30 pm
     Vigil of Easter service (reception of new members) @ 7:30 pm
     Easter Sunday Worship @ 8:30 am and 11 am

The following weekend, April 6 - 7, we will enjoy the Majesty Choir's musical cantata "Wondrous Love" at all of the services (Saturday @ 6 pm and Sunday @ 8:30 and 11 am).  After the Saturday evening service, our Parish Fellowship Team will be serving a supper, so all are invited to stay for a meal and fellowship.
