Tenth Sunday After Pentecost
Children’s Books Wanted – Annual Community Book Drive: Saint John’s is again asking for donations of new or gently used books for children between the ages of birth and eleven. The book drive is from August 1 to September 17, 2017. Drop off books in boxes located in Trimble Hall. Providing books to children is a simple and effective way to promote language and literacy growth in preparing them for learning and reading. The Community Book Drive is a partnership of the Hagerstown Area Religious Council and other non-profit organizations for the benefit of local organizations, schools, and at-risk-children.
Secret Prayer Partners: Sunday August 27 is the day to reveal the Secret Prayer Partners for the past year! Be sure to attend the 10:15 service that day. The cat will be out of the bag at the Coffee Hour after the service! Also, be sure to sign up for the next round of Prayer Partners before August 27th!
Anyone interested in Dinner for Eight? If you are interested in joining this dinner club, please contact the office. If there is enough interest, we will start in September!
Nursery Volunteers Needed! – We are seeking adults and teens to help in the nursery with infants through 4 year-olds. If you are willing to help with this ministry once a month, please contact Margaret Clinch at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-733-2560.
Stewardship: Christian stewardship at Saint John’s is a way of life. The cards in the pews and throughout the church encompass more than money. Please use one to indicate where you are willing to offer your talents and time in gratitude of God's love.
