All Saints' Day Dedications
During the Sunday service on November 6th, we will remember in prayer the names of those who have been buried from St. John on the Mountain during the past year.  In addition to reading the list of names of those who died this year, we invite you to share with us the names of those you have loved and lost.  Please send us those names, and we will remember them before God when we celebrate the Feast of All Saints.  Forms are available on-line, in the office, or in the narthex.  Please return your dedication to the office by Friday, October 28th.
2017 Stewardship
By now you should have received your Stewardship letter for 2017.  If you haven't already done so, please return your 2017 Pledge Card ASAP, as the Vestry needs them to make their budget decisions for the upcoming year.  Extra pledge cards can be found on the web at , in the narthex or call the office 908-766-2282 to have one sent to you.

Parents, children, and youth: Grab a cup of coffee and meet our new Director of Music, Christopher Jennings in the Choir Room after the 10 am liturgy on Sunday, October 30th.

Grace Soup Kitchen
Friday, October 28  
Grace Soup Kitchen serves 1,000 hot nutritious meals the last five days of each month to the hungry of Plainfield.  St. John on the Mountain parishioners help prepare and serve lunch on the last Friday of each month.  Join us on Friday, October 28 from 10 am - 1 pm at 600 Cleveland Avenue, Plainfield.  For more info or to sign-up please email Graham Argent Belcher.
Baptism at St John on the Mountain
Sunday, November 6
We baptize primarily on those dates set aside for baptism, as listed in the Book of Common Prayer.  Since the presence of the community of faith is essential for welcoming the newly baptized into the church, baptisms take place in the principal service on the appointed Sunday. The next day for Baptism is Sunday, November 6th at 10 am.  Questions about baptism?  Please contact Mo. Susan.
Women's Bible Study
Thursday, October 27
This fall we will explore the women of the Old Testament, whose rich stories are often forgotten or misunderstood. This study is influenced and inspired by the work of friend of the parish, Mother Ann Holt, whom we hope will be able to join us for some sessions.  Join us!  No previous experience with the Bible needed!
