SJUC Planting / Tending Day, OCTOBER 26th 11am-2pm: You are invited to remain following a shortened Sunday worship service and join us for a 2nd Planting Day experience.  Many of you were present in May for the 1st experience and now we will take and use all the comments, suggestion, visions, hopes, questions re faithful mission/ministry at St. John’s – all of which we raised at the first event last spring.  How might we expand our ‘presence’ in the community? How might we enhance our various ministries/programs all in an accepting, inclusive manner? How is the Spirit directing our path? Where is our energy/interests these days for the Congregation? Come and be with us.  Lunch (thanks to many of you!) is provided and we begin in the Blair Hall.
