Council Prayer: We ask the members of St. John’s to pray this month for patience, strength and love of one another as we work on the different ways our St. John’s family will be worshipping during the next two months
Thank you all for your prayers! My test came back negative, and we are very grateful. I am also praying for all of the many people in our congregation who are in some way impacted by covid and the pandemic currently. Although I can't share all of the names, please keep all impacted by covid in your prayers this week.
The filming for the Christmas Eve video has been moved to December 3rd.
The plan for Christmas Eve currently remains with 4 PM at Strickfaden and 8 PM on Zoom. If this changes, there will be an announcement. If you need a DVD of the Christmas Eve service, please let me know!
Advent bags are being delivered this week. My children helped put these bags together--if you are missing an item or don't get a bag, please let me know. After a couple of hours of work, they may have gotten a bit careless :) Please also send me pictures of your Advent wreaths for the competition!
If you have any questions, concerns, or prayer requests, please let me know!
Walking with you in Christ,
