Annual Meeting—Sunday, January 20th following the 10:00 a.m. service.
Fundraising Coupon Booklets
The Vestry is supporting a new easy and fun product to sell as a fundraising campaign for St. John’s. We are selling fundraising coupon books for $20.00 from a company called Simple Qpons. The books allow individuals to save money with things like buy-one-get-one-free and 50% off discounts at tons of our favorite local merchants. There are two editions of the book: one for Northwest Indiana and one for Southland Chicago. You can contact Vestry members or the church office to either purchase books yourself OR to help in selling books for this fundraiser.
Painting with Friends
You don’t have to be able to draw a straight line because we won’t ask you to. Mark your calendars to join St. John’s Paint Party from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, January 27 in the Undercroft. Shirley Reilly and Bill Moser will guide you through the steps to create your own painting. The class size is limited, and reservation deadline is Jan. 20. The cost is $40, and all materials will be supplied. Call Gale Michael, Shirley Reilly, or Bill Moser.
Adult Server Training
There will be a training/refresher for Greeters and Ushers on Saturday, February 2nd from 9:00-11:00 am. This is a combined training as both ministries work together at the beginning of the service. Please plan on attending and notify Pat Smith-Huntoon if you are unable to attend and need to set up an alternative time. Additionally, there will be training for Lectors immediately following at 11:00 am. Contact Bill Moser for more information.
18th Annual Episcopal Men’s Pre-Lenten Retreat – Letting Faith Find You
The Annual Retreat will take place from Friday, February 8th – Saturday, February 9th at the Dekoven Center (600 21st Street, Racine, Wisconsin). The Rev. Christopher Powell has agreed to serve as the Retreat Leader, where attendees will have opportunities to participate in small- and large-group discussions on important issues, as well as share fellowship with other men in worship. Flyers with additional information and registration forms will be available in the undercroft. Do not wait to register! Available spots are on a “first come, first registered” basis, and the registration post mark date will be used to determine if room is available.
The new Resource Room needs a 55-to-65-inch flat-screen television that can be mounted on the wall. It should have the capacity to connect to a laptop in order to run videos and Power Point presentations. Do you have such a TV in good condition that you can donate, or are you interested in donating a new one? If so, please contact Fr. Jeremy.
