INTRODUCING SUMMER 2020!

Our summer ministry to youth and families will kick-off on June 7th with a CELEBRATING STUDENTS Event.  Students, grades K – 12, are invited to ride with their families through the church parking lot and receive gift bags and notes written to them from members of our church.  Graduating seniors will receive a prayer shawl made by members of St. John’s.

Upon request, FAMILY FAITH BOXES are being delivered to members’ homes the first week of June, July, and August.  These boxes will have weekly devotions, family fun, and hands-on activities that the family can do together.  Families can also request an extra box to share with their neighbor.  Special videos will be posted on the church (private) Facebook page to introduce the monthly box.  Families are encouraged throughout the month to post pictures and comments about their experience.

Helping parents this summer, we are sending out emails on PARENT RESOURCES.  For youth, we will be starting CONNEX groups for grades 7 – 8, and 9 – 12.  CONNEX is a weekly virtual time, on Zoom, for connecting and encouraging each other.

For more Summer 2020 details, email Laurie at lpecuch@stjohnsgc.org!
