From Fr. Ray +

 

The St. John’s Fellowship Committee met last week and made plans for our Fall and early Winter Fellowship events.  Please put these things on your calendar.

  • September 24:  Lite lunch following worship.  We will meet in either the Chapel or our Garden depending on the weather.
  • October 15:  Lite lunch in the undercroft
  • November 22: Thanksgiving Service followed by snacks in the Chapel
  • December 3: Kick off Advent with a Soup Sampler Supper.  Details and time to be announced.

Fellowship is an important aspect of our life together.  I’ve noticed on Sunday mornings that sometimes the Passing of the Peace gets a bit long due to everyone wanting to visit with each other.  These fellowship events provide a wonderful opportunity to visit and catch up with one another.  I encourage you to make plans to attend each of these events. 

Upcoming Special Music in Worship

Next Sunday, September 17, our guest musician will be Mr. Everett Long.  Everett is a favorite at St. John’s and we are looking forward to him being with us.

On September 24, our guest soloist will be Ms. Vivian Hoskins.  This will be Vivian’s first time with us. Please plan on being present and extending her a warm St. John’s welcome!  Don’t forget to stay after worship for the Lite Luncheon sponsored by our Fellowship Committee.

Blessings, Fr. Ray +

Hurricane Harvey Relief

St. John’s is sending a donation for Hurricane Harvey relief.  All designated donations are being channeled through Bishop Benfield’s Emergency Fund. The good thing about donating through the bishop’s fund is that 100% what we send goes directly to relief efforts.  You can make a donation by sending a check to the church at P.O. Box 770, Helena, 72342, or by placing your donation in the offering plate on Sunday morning.  Thank you and God bless you as you seek to be a blessing to our brothers and sisters in Texas. 

 

Beautiful Music at St. John’s

Sunday worshippers at St. John’s are in for a triple blessing during the month of September!  We are fortunate to have three talented soloists this month. The schedule is as follows:

                                                Sunday, September 10:  Ms. Elizabeth Garcia

                                                Sunday, September 17:  Mr. Everett Long

                                                Sunday, September 24:  Ms. Vivian Hoskins

Have you invited a family member of friend to join you for worship at St. John’s?  Guests are always welcome!  Any one of these Sundays provide a wonderful opportunity to share the love of Christ and the beauty of worship in our Anglican tradition.

Confirmation/Informational Class

Towards the end of September, I will be leading a six-week Confirmation/Informational Class on The Episcopal Church.  While geared towards those who want to be Confirmed or Received into membership at St. John’s and The Episcopal Church, it will also be an excellent opportunity to refresh your knowledge of our faith tradition. Bishop Benfield’s next pastoral visit to St. John’s will be February 4, 2018, at which time those who have completed the class will have the opportunity to be baptized and/or confirmed.

Blessings, Fr. Ray +

Our Fellowship Committee and their Chairperson, Carla Myers, did an awesome job with the luncheon and homemade ice cream social last Sunday following worship! Please let them know how much their efforts are appreciated.

Several folks have asked if there is a way to contribute to Hurricane Harvey relief through The Episcopal Church. A message from the Diocesan office said they are awaiting information from Texas Bishop, Andy Doyle, on how to best assist.  As soon as we have this information, we will pass it along to you.

We will be continuing our study of The Apostles’ Creed this week in Sunday School. Our topic this week is The Communion of the Saints.  Please consider joining us at 9:15 a.m. next Sunday!

Towards the end of September, I will be leading a six-week Confirmation/Informational Class on The Episcopal Church.  While geared towards those who want to be Confirmed or Received into membership at St. John’s and The Episcopal Church, it will also be an excellent opportunity to refresh your knowledge of our faith tradition.

Mark your calendar and dust off your ice cream maker! St. John’s is having a light lunch and homemade ice cream social on Sunday, August 27 following worship!

If you cannot bring homemade ice cream, then feel free to bring “store bought” or toppings. This is a wonderful opportunity to invite family and friends to join you for worship at St. John’s.

More details will be sent in a separate email early next week.

Towards the end of September, I will be leading a six-week Confirmation/Informational Class on The Episcopal Church.  While geared towards those who want to be Confirmed or Received into membership at St. John’s and The Episcopal Church, it will also be an excellent opportunity to refresh your knowledge of our faith tradition.
