Almighty God, we thank you for making the earth fruitful, so
that it might produce what is needed for life: Bless those who
work in the fields; give us seasonable weather; and grant that
we may all share the fruits of the earth, rejoicing in your
goodness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

We welcome all to our 10:30 service each Sunday. Please continue to mask and sit in the open rows. We offer (wafer only) Eucharist. We look forward to continued loosening of these restrictions as concerns about the pandemic lessen.We will be collecting non-perishable food for the Food Pantry this September. The Food Pantry is in need of boxes of any kind of cereal, cans of chicken noodle soup, cans of spaghetti, cans of spaghetti and meatballs, and cans of ravioli.
On August 22 we welcomed Deacon Susan Firestine back to St. John's to lead the congregation in Morning Prayer. She is shown here with the Rev. Nancy Guenther (L) and Bishop Sean Rowe.

New Format for Partnership Worship
Since March 2020, hundreds of people across the partnership have gathered for online worship on Sunday mornings. Originally, the partnership planned to offer this service only until congregations could once again gather in their buildings. But a community has formed, and there is interest in continuing to gather online.
Beginning May 30 and continuing at least through the summer, a new half-hour worship service will be offered on Sundays at 9 a.m. The format will be a Zoom Meeting, which means participants can choose to have their cameras and microphones on to see and speak with one another. Preachers and worship leaders will be chosen from across the partnership. Once a month, the service will focus on prayers for reconciliation and healing.
Email Gabrie'l Atchison firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a weekly email reminder with the Zoom link and readings.
