St. John’s Episcopal Church 

 

We are having Sunday services this week in the church at St. John’s.  St. John’s doors will continue to be open for all Sunday Services depending on the weekly number of COVID19.  Masks, social distancing and use of the hand sanitizer are encouraged.  In order to follow the social distance of six feet required, certain pews are roped off.  Thank you everyone for your help in lowering our numbers in Phillips County.

Video will be available for those unable or are not yet comfortable to attend in person.

Included below is a direct link to a survey that we would appreciate your participation in completing. This will help tremendously in our search and development. You can fill in your choices on this form and select submit at the end to send the form direct. https://episcopalarkansas.org/questionnaire/        

If you prefer, you can download a PDF version, then print, complete, and return it to the office for the vestry.  Copies will also be available at the back of the church on Sunday.

Thank you for taking the time to participate. The intent of this survey is to capture information and opinions from parishioners in anticipation of a clergy leadership transition. This data will contribute to the selection of your next priest. It will also suggest general priorities for congregational development.

We need this information completed and submitted or turned in by June 15 for our June Vestry Meeting.  We thank you again, your participation and opinions are always important to St. John’s.
