St. John's 2016 Preparation for Confirmation Letter

Reminder: 8th Graders take confirmation pictures this Wednesday, April 27, 2016, at 5 PM in the sanctuary. Please wear something a nice as possible, noting that we will be wearing robes and stoles for the pictures. Shoes can be seen in the pictures, so choose your shoes wisely. Please do not run late, as this delays all of the picture taking.

Following pictures, we will do a run through of how we are walking in, where people are standing, etc. This will take as long as it takes: full cooperation on the students' parts will likely ensure a quick rehearsal.

Thank you for making Wednesday work, and we look forward to celebrating with you on Sunday!

~~Prs. David & Justin

Mikes & Pipes Fund Drive

Shortly after we set and approved our budgets for this year, St. John's Council learned of two urgent needs. The wireless microphones used by the pastors and worship assistants are 10 years old and in bad shape. In addition, the pipe organ needs strengthened supports for the larger pipes to prevent sagging and eventual failure. The council acted on faith to immediately commit to both projects which saves a considerable amount of money.  Now it is time to fund both projects which total $7,200. The Memorial Committee has set aside $2,000 for a fifty cents on the dollar match. Please choose one of three ways to make a gift to our “Mikes & Pipes” fund as you are able: 1) Make your gift through your regular offering envelope, noting it on your check or envelope. 2) Grab a special “Mikes & Pipes” envelope from the back of the sanctuary and put your gift in it to put in the offering plate. 3) Go online to stjohnsnorfolk.com, click on the Donate Now button, and give an e-gift on the “Mikes & Pipes” line. Thank you for giving as generously as you are able toward these projects.

St. John's Text Notifications

We used our text notification service quite a bit over the past month with our inclement weather. Are you signed up for St. John's Text Notifications through Remind.com? You can also download the remind.com app. Ask Pastor Justin if you have any technical questions. Pretty easy & convenient for those who text!

Walk 'n Talk

Let's go for a walk! St. John's Parish Fellowship Team would like to invite you to walk 'n talk with us on Saturday mornings. Join us at Skyview Lake at 9 AM, meeting at the playground equipment and we will walk around the lake. Bring your kids, strollers, scooters, or pets along for the walk. Let's have some fun walking and getting to know each other!
