Dear St. John’s Family,
 
Last Friday evening’s service celebrating our new ministry together was wonderful in every way.   So many folks contributed time, talent and energy to make for a memorable evening.  The reception following the service was delightful, too.  The food was great and the fellowship sweet.  My sincere, heartfelt thanks go out to all who played a part in this special evening.
