ALTAR FLOWERS: There are open dates for Altar flowers on Sept 2, 9, 16, 23, 30 .  If you would like to reserve any of these weekends, contact the church office at 419-898-6474.

COMMUNITY MARKET RECEIPTS Please keep your community market receipts and bring them to church - the LYO is collecting the receipts! There is a box in the elevator lobby or you can drop them off to the office. A special thanks to Marge Felder for organizing and tallying them for the LYO!

THERE IS A LARGE PRINT HYMNAL available for the congregation.  It is in a 3-ring binder located on the credence table by the handicap entrance.  If there is a need for more than 1 hymnal at a service, please contact the office.

ST. JOHN’S NURSERY SCHOOL is accepting enrollment for the 2018-19 school year. Enrollment will be open to the community on February 1st.  Children must be 3 years old by September 1st. Classes meet in the mornings on Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 8:00 – 12:00 or Monday thru Friday 8:00 – 12:00.

SPECIAL MUSIC OPENINGS: there are opportunities each month for Special Music during Sunday morning worship. If you would like to volunteer, please contact one of the music personnel or the church office.

BE SURE TO CHECK OUT the display case in the elevator lobby. “Blessed Are the Children” plates, painted by Walter Rane and marketed by W.S. George, have been donated to the church.  These plates will be on display for a few months for your enjoyment.

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.
