| We entered the season of Epiphany this past Monday, so you will notice new liturgical colors when you arrive at church on Sunday. We will also begin a new sermon series on the "I Am" statements from the gospel of John, and that series will continue until the beginning of Lent. |
| Don't forget that catechesis for children and adults begins again on Sunday, January 19th. Maggie and Suzanne will be prepared with a curriculum and activities for the kids, and I will wrap-up our study from the fall with a final lecture on the End Times. In subsequent weeks, we will go through some key points in the Anglican Catechism and have a chance to discuss some Anglican distinctives. |
| Please mark your calendars for Sunday, February 16th, since we are going to have a church potluck and business meeting after church on that day. Our agenda will include a summary of the church's finances, a discussion of the meaning of membership at St. John's, and preparation for a reorganization of the mission council, which will take place in the Summer. |
| Also, please mark your calendars for Sunday, April 19th since we will have confirmations with Archbishop Foley Beach. |
| I look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday!|
