Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper and Wednesday Lenten Supper Series The observance of a Holy Lent at St. John’s is important to us. As members of Christ’s Body we prepare for Easter through self-examination, repentance, prayer, fasting and by reading and meditating on God’s Word to share in our Lord’s passion and resurrection. Visitors are welcome and encouraged to share in this time of preparation. We gather each Wednesday night during the five weeks before Palm Sunday at 6:00 p.m. for a simple meal and a program.
Tuesday Morning Knitting Circle Did you know that a group of ladies gathers in the Parish House library each Tuesday morning at 10:00 a.m. to visit with each other while they knit? Everyone is always welcome to join them, and you do not need to know how to knit to participate. In fact, if you’re interested in learning, these ladies provide helpful instruction. Other crafts are welcome.
