For All the Saints

This Sunday, November 6, we celebrate All Saints Sunday.   During the worship service, we will take time to remember St. John’s members and our own loved ones who have died in Christ and are now at rest.  You are invited to bring a photo or memento of your loved one to church.  You will have the opportunity to come forward and place your memento on the table by the altar, pray, and light a candle in their memory. 
Happy Birthday to those born 11/4-11/10:
  • Susan Crist, 11/8
Happy Anniversary to those celebrating this week:
  • Jim Dossa & Michelle Siu, 11/4
Additions to the Prayer List:
  • Cathie Knobel, recovering from knee replacement surgery

We apologize for any omissions. If your birthday, anniversary, or new intention on the prayer list is not included, please contact to be added. Please also let us know of any personal or family milestones, including happy occasions or serious lifecycle events that you would like to share with the St. John's community.
Generosity Sunday Next Weekend
As part of our Stewardship Season, we have been focusing for the past few weeks on how we connect with God, with one another, and with the world through the ministries of St. John’s.  In order to continue this vital work of cultivating sacred connections, we need to increase donations by $700 per week in 2023.  Our Church Council has already submitted their commitment cards, and we have a combined increase of $84 per week from this group.  Thank you, Council!  You will receive a letter in the mail this week inviting you join the Council in growing in generosity next year.  We hope that you will pray about this request, reflect on what St. John’s means to you, and ponder how God might be calling you to more fully align your financial practices with your values.  Please complete your commitment card and bring it to worship for Generosity Sunday on November 13.  Thank you!
Thanksgiving Multifaith Service: Call for Singers

Seeking Children’s Church Volunteers
