Sunday, February 7, 2021 – Epiphany 5 – Scout Sunday

Several families of the community have stepped up to sponsor a “Matching Fund” in the amount of $25,000 for new pledgers or for those who can supplement this years’ pledge. Your donation would effectively be doubled! This could almost erase our budget shortfall! Details will be coming to you early next week. Will you please consider and pray if you can help St. John’s capture this generous offer – given us from God’s abundance?

Plans for Shrove Tuesday and Ash Wednesday!

The Season of Lent is drawing close. Ash Wednesday is February 17 this year and Shrove Tuesday is the day before. Our online ZOOM services on both days are at 6 p.m. Find the links in my e-blast to church members sent Saturday, February 6. If you didn’t get the e-blast, let me know and I’ll send the links: cpotter@stjohns-es.org

Pick up a “Lent Bag To Go” at Church on Wednesday, February 11, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. In this bag will be some celebratory items for you to wear on Shrove Tuesday together with the prayers. Also included will be the ashes for Ash Wednesday – which you will be able to impose on yourself and your family at your leisure or during our Ash Wednesday prayer service.
