It’s finally happening! After three years of sharing with us, and helping us grow as a Beloved Community, Rev. Don will be installed as our called pastor. Please join us for the celebration on Sunday, October 24, here at St. Johns at 2:00 p.m. Normally there would be a reception to follow, but Covid restrictions are preventing that at this time. But we WILL have a party at a later date.

Our Tour De Donut efforts have been rewarded with a check for $250. Right now the money is sitting in our General Fund, but we’d love to put it to a good use. Please share your ideas with Rev. Don or any Council member.

Believe it or not, it’s already time to look at Committees and Council for next year. Becky Pierce has agreed to chair our Nomination Committee, where she will be joined by Barbara Gibbons, Caroline Maslowski, Glenn Lytle and Mike Beamish.

If the Holy Spirit is moving you to become more involved here at St. Johns, feel free to let any of those folks know. And if you are asked to serve, please consider your intentions prayerfully and carefully.

As always, I extend blessings to all of you, as well as wishes for your continued safety and good health as we continue to “do church” together.

Ginny Beamish, Council President
