Upcoming Events and other News

Here’s a fun photo!  Our youngest baptized member, Rowan, (3 months) in her dad’s arms (Russell), and our oldest baptized member, Betty Phillips (96).

There is no midweek eucharist at St. John’s in the month of October.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

No, it was not a misprint! Our thanks to David Miller, who, at the 10 a.m. service, filled in the verses that the Lectionary (intentionally) left out in the first reading.  It made for more continuity in the story . . . 

Congratulations to Mark and Debbie Cole-Wenderlich – soon to be grandparents yet again as their daughter, Kristin, and son-in-law, Sabah Fakhri, have announced that they expecting!! 

Congratulations to Prince and Roja Singh, who are celebrating their wedding anniversary (28 years) Friday. 

We have been notified of two grants from the Diocese of Rochester Mission Partnership Committee for 2020 – one for Family Promise for $7,600 and for one for the Gleaners Community Kitchen for $4,750.  We are grateful for the consideration and support for these two essential programs and thank the committee members including, The Rev. Ginny Mazarella, The Rev. Jay Burkhardt, Ms. Liz Porter, The Rev. Lance Robbins and Mr. Al Carvill (even though he obviously couldn’t vote.)

The Women of St. John’s will be having another movie night at the church on Sunday, October 20 at 4:30 p.m. and they are showing “Hidden Figures” – the untold story of three brilliant African American women who were the brains at NASA for the launch of John Glenn into space.  Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughan, and Mary Jackson crossed gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.  So join the WoSJ, bring your favorite treat to share, and enjoy the show!!

Our Fall Book Study will be held on Wednesday evenings (October 2, 9, 16, & 23) from 5:45 – 7:15 at the church.  We’re going to take a look at worship in the Episcopal Church – a sort of “Whys and Wherefores” of liturgy, if you will.  A more complete description is available on the handouts on the table outside the Parish Office.  Please bring a dish to share, as we’ll have a light supper beforehand. Books may be ordered for about $14 on-line or from your favorite bookseller.  For more information, please see Fr. David.
