This week we will celebrate 

Trinity Sunday

Trinity Sunday is the Episcopal Church's feast that celebrates "the one and equal glory" of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, "in Trinity of Persons and in Unity of Being" (BCP, p. 380). It is celebrated on the first Sunday after Pentecost. Trinity Sunday is one of the seven principal feasts (Easter Day, Ascension Day, Pentecost, Trinity Sunday, All Saints' Day, Christmas Day, and the Epiphany) of the church year.

Arthur, you are sealed by the

Holy Spirit in Baptism

Last Sunday we baptised Arthur K. Barpaye.  Welcome him into the household of God.

Food For Friends Ministry

Did you know that St. John's provides meals for people in our parish? We welcome new volunteers to provide meals for our church community. If you are interested please submit your name here.  These meals will go toward people who are recovering from illness, had a birth, or are bereaved.

SPY Volunteers - Time to Sign Up

Please click on the links below each of the weeks and sign up for specific time slots.  If you need help signing up please contact Sue Baxter from SPY.  She will have the current available time slots if you are unable to use the on line system.

We need help with the following volunteer positions:

BOOK READER- Sign up to share your favorite book, or a book selected for you, with a group of young children and show them just how engaging and fun reading a book can be!  Our volunteer readers are so important!  Reading aloud with children strengthens literacy skills, introduces new vocabulary, and models what fluent, expressive reading sounds like.  Volunteer readers read for 30 minutes with each of the two reading groups for a total of one hour.  Counselors remain with the group and monitor behavior so you can relax and enjoy the time making a difference in the lives of children.  

KITCHEN HELPER - Campers at SPY are fed a nutritious and delicious lunch every day while attending camp.  Volunteers are needed to assist our Kitchen Manager with the preparation of the food, serving the campers and cleaning-up after the meal.  Volunteers can sign up for one or all three of the kitchen assignments and can expect to help for about 90 minutes per task.  Two volunteers are needed per kitchen assignment so sign up with a friend!

FOOD BAG PICK-UP- Food bags from Project Share are provided to eligible campers at the end of each week to assure they receive adequate nourishment over the weekend.  A volunteer is needed to pick these bags up and deliver them to the camp for distribution.  Individuals volunteering to pick these bags up should have a vehicle with the capacity to transport as many as 50 bags.
