St. John's Schedule

A Message from Fr. Bryan

Dear Friends in Christ,

I'd like to thank you all for the generosity you showed to "Samuel" the missionary several weeks ago. In all, we raised just over $1,000 dollars through the special collection that we took up on Sunday, October 11th. Please pray for Samuel, that God will bless and protect him and that his ministry in Turkey will be fruitful.

You may know that cases of Covid-19 are increasing across the country and in Ohio. This has been a long year, and it is not over yet. However, our church has been wonderfully patient, and I am truly grateful. At St. John's we will simply "stay-the-course," and I do believe that we will see the beginning of a gradual return to normal sometime next Spring. In the meantime, let's do what we can to keep ourselves and others safe. I learned a few days ago that Joshua Boquist's father has been diagnosed with Covid-19 and that around 30 family members are having to quarantine. In addition to the many other needs we are aware of, please pray for Joshua's dad and the whole family.

The good news is that, our church is able to gather around God's Word and receive the grace of his body each week in the eucharist. This is all we need, so let's continue to be vigilant and pray for those who are quarantined, sick, and suffering in various ways during this difficult season.

Finally, if you are interested in providing a meal for Bp. Grant and Wendy LeMarquand during their time of need, please contact Chad Sanner to make arrangements. He can be reached at 330-687-0424.

I look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Grace & Peace,
