St. John on the Mountain
Upcoming Events

New Sound System
We have a brand new sound system at church.  It is a truly amazing piece of technology that was given to us by Sandy and Joan Millspaugh, and we are thrilled to have this tool for our worship. The quality of sound is remarkable!   There will be a basket of six headsets that are offered to those who are hearing-impaired.  They are simple and sturdy devices that have individual volume control.  If you want to use a headset, ask an usher, or take one from the basket in the narthex.
Rescheduled Ladies' Luncheon

We have rescheduled the Ladies' Luncheon. All are welcome to join the Ladies' Luncheon on Thursday, March 23rd at noon at the home of Gerry Jo Cranmer, 320 Hardscrabble Road, Bernardsville.

On Wednesdays at 6:00 pm in Lent (March 22, 29, April 5) join us for a Potluck Supper. Bring a simple dish to share with members of our community. Afterwards, join us at at 7:00 pm for Evening Prayer in the Church. We will use a simple musical setting by Marty Haugen called the Holden Evening Prayer.
