We had a wonderful turnout for April’s Outreach at P.A.C.K. Plan to join us on May 5 & 19.
We were able to pack a lot of items thanks to our hard-working volunteers at P.A.C.K.
Plan to Join Us at P.A.C.K. in May
Thank you for your support of St. John’s Outreach efforts, packing food for local children at P.A.C.K. April’s youth night at PACK garnered 28 volunteers! We still need more volunteers for our third Wednesdays at P.A.C.K. as we only had a few volunteers during April’s third Wednesday. Please plan to add this month’s dates to your calendar: Wednesdays, May 5 & 19, 4-6 p.m.

As a reminder, youth will be helping us on the first Wednesdays of each month while all parishioners are invited to join us on the third Wednesdays of the month. If you are interested, please call Cathy Baxter at 912-704-5111. We love to see new faces each month!

The Robert Crouse Project
Parishioners may remember the late Fr. Robert Crouse, an important Anglican theologian, a leader in spiritual renewal in the Anglican tradition, and a mentor to many younger Prayer Book Anglican clergy, who visited St. John’s on numerous occasions before his death in 2011, and conducted several seminars for the Elliott House of Studies at St. John’s. Along with a publication project, Elliott House is seeking to gather notes and recordings of his lectures, which will be digitized and cataloged for easy access online. The budget for this project is estimated at twenty to thirty thousand dollars. Parishioners interested in supporting financially this gathering/digitizing/cataloging project are invited to speak to Fr. Dunbar. Checks may be made out to “Elliott House” with “Crouse project” in the memo line.
1662 Book of Common Prayer “International Edition”
Receive a discount when you pre-order a copy of the classic 1662 Prayer Book “International Edition”. Mail or drop off a check to the church office for $16/each. Make checks out to Prayer Book Society USA with 1662 in the memo.
We are building a community in Christ that is grounded in historic faith and reverent worship, and is committed to sharing the life-transforming truth of the Gospel.
