St. John’s Episcopal Church - Sunday, April 1, 2018


From Fr. Ray+

 

During Holy Week, we walk with Jesus to the cross. All are welcome to participate in this journey at the following services this week:

On Maundy Thursday, we will gather at 5:30 p.m. to remember the night when Jesus gave his followers the new commandment that “they love one another.”  We will partake of Holy Communion, which Jesus instituted on this night.  The stripping of the altar will be the concluding action of this solemn service.

On Friday, we will gather at Noon to observe the liturgy of Good Friday. Before we sing with joy on Easter we will weep over our own sins and the sins of the world that led our Savior to the cross.  At 5:30 p.m. we will walk the Stations of the Cross.

We will gather at our usual worship time of 10:30 on Easter to celebrate our Lord’s resurrection.  Children will gather at 10:00 a.m. for the Flowering of the Cross.  A festive reception with joyful music and refreshments will take place in our garden immediately following worship.  There will also be an Easter Egg hunt for the children.

During this week, we will walk with Jesus through his betrayal, final meal with his followers and crucifixion.  Then, on Easter morning, we will celebrate the victory of life over death and renew our commitment to follow him as Lord.

Blessings,  Fr. Ray+

St. John’s Episcopal Church - Sunday, March 25 2018


From Fr. Ray +

 

A big THANKS to all who attended the Listening Meeting and Lunch following worship last Sunday! Special appreciation goes out to West Hornor for cooking the pulled pork and baked beans and to Angie Fielder for lining up the delicious side items.

Three general values emerged from our discussion. Those three values are:

  1. Discipleship and Spiritual Development is seen as vital to our life as a congregation. There was agreement that our central purpose is to worship God and help our members and friends grow in their relationship with God through Christ and then to encourage them as they live out that relationship in every area of their lives.
  2. Worship and Liturgy is deeply valued by our congregation. There was particular interest in exploring ways we can enhance our worship services by  strengthening/expanding our music program.
  3. Outreach and Ministry to Our Community is considered a visible expression of our commitment to Christ. This includes both evangelism as we encourage others to follow Jesus and ministries aimed at meeting human needs.

This meeting did not include designing specific plans or programs related to these three primary values. Three groups will be created for the purpose of designing specific plans related to each value. Please prayerfully consider being part of one of these groups, then call or email me and let me know which group is of interest to you.


We will enjoy our final Soup Supper this Wednesday, March 21 following our Eucharist at 5:30. Thanks to all who have prepared delicious soups!

From Fr. Ray +

 

Men’s Retreat at Camp Mitchell

 

I encourage all men at St. John’s to consider attending an upcoming Men’s Retreat. Perhaps we could get a group and ride over together to Camp Mitchell.  Details are as follows:

The Second Annual Episcopal Men’s Retreat will be held at Camp Mitchell, April 6, 7, 8, led by Rev. Danny Schieffler and Rev. Carey Stone.   The theme is “Jesus: Toward a Healthy Model of Masculinity:  Coming to this weekend will help you understand your strengths and weaknesses as a man and introduce you to the psychological foundations of a mature, authentic, and revitalized masculinity.  Space is limited. Cost is $190 and includes the program, lodging and six meals.  For reservations e-mail programdirector@campmitchell.org or call 501-727-5451.

 

Evening Prayer continues on Mondays and Tuesdays during Lent at 5:30 p.m. in the chapel.  On Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m., we will have Holy Communion, followed by a simple soup supper and brief program in the undercroft.  I encourage you to make some or all of these weekly services part of your Lenten journey this year. 

 

I will be facilitating two meetings at which you will be invited to share those things you appreciate about St. John’s.   It is from the things that we appreciate that we will determine our most important values and begin the process of better understanding where the Lord is leading us at this time in our journey of faith as a congregation.  These two meetings will be held on Tuesday, March 6 at 6 p.m. and Sunday, March 18 at 4 p.m.  Each meeting will last approximately two hours.  I look forward to hearing your input!
