June 26, Spruce Up the Nursery
We’re looking for some volunteers this Saturday, June 26th, to help remove everything from the nursery and sort toys. The St. John’s kids program will be reopening in July, and we want to welcome them back with a bright and refreshed spot of their own. We’d love to see you at 9:30 in the nursery!
July 3, Contemplative Prayer Service
Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God.”
Please join us in St. John’s sanctuary the first Saturday of every month at 10:00 am as Allison DeHart facilitates a time of silent prayer. This holy practice follows an ancient Christian contemplative prayer tradition dating back to the third century Desert Fathers and Mothers.
The service will begin with a short reading and introduction to centering prayer followed by a sequence of silent, seated prayer followed by walking around the sanctuary in silence and returning to silent, seated prayer. The service will conclude by 11:00 am.
July 11-18, General Synod Registration Open
This year’s theme is Rooted in Love and UCC’s General Synod will be virtual.
We will gather under the theme: Rooted in Love, July 11-18, 2021. You can expect the vibrancy of Spirit-led worship with prophetic preaching, music- and art-filled experiences that will anchor us. You can expect the same Spirit-filled energy in an engaging meeting of the General Synod that tends to the business and forward-momentum of the United Church of Christ. And, you can expect to learn more and connect with the UCC by attending workshops and other opportunities being prepared for you. Registration now
August 28, The Tour De Donut
Save the date! The Tour De Donut is returning to Troy on August 28. Apparently, St. John’s has acquired the reputation for being friendly, efficient and dedicated Donut Servers, and we are hopeful that the new organizers will again count on us for help. Please add your name to the list in the Narthex if you are interested in spending that morning with hundreds of cyclists and thousands of donuts.
