Married couples, on the 1st Tuesday of the month at 7 pm, spend quality time with your spouse in our Marriage Enrichment group. We have discussion time and a social hour. We always have a good time together! Join us on Sept. 5.

Alpha

The next Alpha session will be on Sunday evenings 5:30 to 7:30, beginning Sept. 10. In your small group you will enjoy a meal, watch a video and discuss the video. Alpha will bring you closer to Jesus and those in your group. Call now to reserve a spot for this session. 419-782-7121

October Fest for All

We are looking for help in different areas at the Fest for All. Come to our committee meeting this Tuesday at 7:15 pm in the St. Luke Room.

My fellow parishioners:                                                                                                                               When Jesus began His ministry, He chose twelve followers to be His core team of disciples.  Jesus knew His ultimate fate and needed faithful men to keep His ministry alive.  As Chairman of St. John’s Fest-For-All, I’m asking you to seriously consider volunteering for our core team.  We’re truly in need of a few more committee leaders.  Our next meeting is Aug. 8th, 2017, at 7:15 pm in the St. Luke Room.  Please pray on your decision to serve and for the success of our Fest-For-All.

 Yours in Christ,
