St. John's Schedule

A Message from Fr. Bryan

Dear Friends in Christ,

We had a wonderful outing at Maize Valley this past weekend. The weather was nice, the kids seemed to have a great time, and we will likely make this an annual event. I tried to take pictures and managed to get a few, which you can find on St. John's Instagram page. If you ever have good photos that you would like to share - especially group photos - please send them to me, and I will be happy to post them.

Our study of 1 Thessalonians is going well, and I look forward to beginning a sermon series on the book this coming Sunday. The series title is "Living with the End in Sight," since Paul continually reminds the church at Thessalonica what it means to be prepared for the ultimate return of Jesus Christ. I hope it will be a good series and ask for your prayers that it edifies our church.

I've had a few people ask me about a three-part teaching series that I am preparing for the C.S. Lewis Institute. It will cover each chapter of C.S. Lewis' book, The Abolition of Man, and we will use Zoom for presentations and small discussion breakout rooms. I've hesitated to mention this at church since the institute is charging $35 for participation, but if you are interested or know someone who might be interested, you can find more information at this link.

Finally, Chad Sanner mentioned this past Sunday that Wendy LeMarquand, the wife of our interim bishop, broke both of her hands recently. A meal train has been established by Dr. Joel Scandrette of Trinity School for Ministry, and Chad has offered to take any frozen meals provided by the people of St. John's to the LeMarquands during this hard time. If you would like to provide a meal in the next few weeks, please contact Chad at 330-687-0424.

I'm grateful for you all and look forward to worshipping with you on Sunday.

Grace & Peace,

    Following Jesus Into Mission from Samuel
