Council Corner December

Hello and welcome to Council Corner,


The end of a calendar year is often a time for reflection of where we are, where we have been and where we are headed and this year is no different.  I'm sure you would agree that no one could have predicted the year that was 2020 and all that has transpired since March when our world changed dramatically as we entered into a worldwide pandemic. 


Under the leadership and direction of  Pastor we have continued to meet on a regular basis to ensure the needs of the church and members were being met with a goal to do everything within our power to keep our congregation safe.  While many changes have occurred we continue to have regular worship schedules, confirmation and Sunday school classes have resumed albeit in a different venue and we continue to be blessed with a membership who continues to give and support us during these difficult times. 


While it would be easy to focus on what we are missing or what we have lost the Council along with Pastor continue to focus on all we have accomplished and how blessed are are that as we enter 2021 our future remains bright and St. Johns remains open, inviting and alive in Christ! 


As we enter the holiday season we give thanks for all we are, all we have been and for all we continue to be as we move forward into 2021. 


Wishing each of you a joyous and safe holiday season.

Each month, council picks a member of the St. John's community to highlight and celebrate!
