ST. JOHN’S PRAYER GROUP: In addition to praying for the homeless (as well as others), we would like to invite the congregation to work with us on a project! We are doing a Sock Project. Starting this week, we are collecting socks for men at Cherry Street Mission & women at Sparrows Nest. Research has shown that one of the main items asked for by those living in shelters is warm socks. Please join us as we embark on the Sock Project! Bins will be located in the Narthex & elevator lobby. This will be a year-round project.

DO YOU THINK IT’S IMPORTANT for our children to learn about God?  Sunday school is back in session September 10th, and we are looking for leaders to help guide our children in this important mission.  We would love to have you volunteer for whatever works for you – a single Sunday, one Sunday a month, one Sunday a quarter, several times a quarter, or every week – any time you are able to spend will be greatly appreciated.  Please prayerfully consider volunteering and contact Michelle Beier (419-707-0585), Debbie Roberts (419-707-1463), or the church office with any dates you are available.
