Dear Members and Friends of St. John’s,
Don’t miss St. John’s Annual Saturday Worship experience THIS SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15TH with an Urban Cookout at 5:30 pm and the service at 6:30 pm
(There will be NO Sunday worship on October 16th due to the Columbus Marathon, which will block our access to St. John’s).
We will start with our annual Urban Cookout at 5:30pm, hosted by Pastor Rachael and the Youth of St. John’s! Hamburgers, hot dogs, all the fixin’s, and plenty of s’mores, will complete the menu. Please don’t miss this opportunity to support our young people!
Then we will gather for worship at 6:30pm for our first ever Contemporary Worship Service at St. John’s! The service will feature a preview of our new St. John’s contemporary worship band, led by Pastor Dan Clark, St. John’s new Contemporary Worship Pastor. I will be preaching about restoration and hope, while Pastor Dan leads us on a journey into contemporary music and new ways of reaching people for Christ through music.
Please join us in celebrating God’s grace and provision in bringing to us this wonderful pastor to us to lead our contemporary musical programming into a new era of ministry at St. John’s!
Starting on December 11th St. John’s will move to our new worship format with our new contemporary worship pastor:
NEW SUNDAY WORSHIP SCHEDULE
STARTING DECEMBER 11th
9:00am Traditional Worship Service
10:00am Fellowship and Christian Education Hour
11:00am Contemporary Worship Service
Our 12 noon Wednesday worship time will remain the same, followed by The Largest Table community meal on Wednesdays.
Our December 11th Contemporary Worship Service will be the beginning of our new era of contemporary worship and ministry offerings at St. John’s. We will then spend several months working together as clergy, leadership, congregation, musicians – and as people of God – to prepare for the full launch of our contemporary programming during Holy Week 2017ations. Please generously support the future of St. John’s with an extra gift this month to fund our new contemporary music programming!
Here at St. John’s, we are energized and excited as we continue to live into the vision of God’s future for our church. We hope you will join us on this journey of a lifetime – and don’t miss this special “preview” of St. John’s new contemporary worship band THIS Saturday evening at 6:30pm!
With faith, hope, and love,
