Dear St. John's Community,
Now that summer is upon us and activities galore vie for our attention, please keep the community of St. John's in mind. Here are a few reminders for the summer months:
SUMMER PARISH PROJECT -
Where Do You Find God? As you travel and enjoy the summer, please stop and capture a picture of where you have seen God at work in the world. Perhaps a garden, the shore, with family and friends, or at a summer chapel? Send your pictures to Michelle at email@example.com and we will share them in the glass walkway for all to enjoy!
SUMMER GARDEN TOUR - St. John's Gill Memorial Garden will be part of the Garden Tour in support of the Bakersville Library on July 15th. Plants gleaned from the Memorial Garden will be offered for sale.
SUMMER REGION CONVOCATION -
The Northwest Region Convocation will take place on Saturday, July 22, 11-3pm at White Memorial Conservation Center, 80 Whitehall Road, Litchfield, CT. Adult and Children's Programs are planned. Please join us.
SUMMER COFFEE HOURS - If you are hosting coffee hour this summer, please know that you have the option of hosting this post service reception in the garden. The tables are set in the walkway and lemonade dispensers are located in the kitchen. Thanks for your hospitality and your tasty treats.
SUMMER VISITORS - Summer is prime visiting time for those seeking out a new church home. Please be cognizant of those around you in need of assistance and a warm welcome. Thanks.
SUMMER NURSERY - Thanks to Molly Lukiwsky, Mary Healey, and Linda Snyder, the nursery will be available for the 9am service during the summer.
SUMMER GARDEN LAYWEEDERS - Thank you to our Garden Managers, Norma Pappalardo and Anne Hall, and all those who lovingly care for our garden.
SUMMER BAPTISMS - Please contact Mother Cosman if you would like to discuss baptism for yourself or a member of your family.
SUMMER PLEDGING - If you find that you are not able to attend during the summer months, please consider keeping up your pledge by mailing it in. Mail it to St. John's Church 51 Church Street, P.O. Box 27, Pine Meadow, CT 06061 Attn: Treasurer. Thank you so much in advance for your ongoing support of St. John's.
SUMMER BIRTHDAY & ANNIVERSARY CARDS - Please stop by the Garden walkway and sign the July Birthday and Anniversary cards.
SUMMER MISSION PROJECT - Covenant to Care for Children Back to School Backpacks - Our parish social worker, Michelle Chase, has asked us to help provide backpacks and school supplies for children. Your generosity is appreciated. Please place your donations in the container in the narthex. See Lucie Martocchio, our Parish Liaison for any further information. Thanks.
May you travel with God this summer in whatever you do and wherever you go. May you pray this summer and every day and in every situation. May you be aware of God's action in your life and God's love for you and all those you know and love.
