July Council Corner

Hello and welcome to Council Corner!



Council continues to meet to address the ongoing needs of our church and our members.


First, if you or a loved one is in need of pastoral care including scheduling a visit with Pastor we are asking that you please contact the church office at 716-683-8972 to speak with Abby or to leave a VM for Abby/Pastor. If you have a pastoral emergency or would like to speak directly to Pastor about scheduling an appointment with him we encourage you to contact him at his direct number 716-848-9683 as well.


As Pastor indicated in his recent call- we need to update our list of members who are home-bound and unable to attend church. If you are aware of a member or if you would like to add your name to the list we ask that you please let Abby know as soon as possible.


We continue to look for volunteers for our Altar Guild- please let us know if you are interested in being part of the team! This is a great way to help the church without a large time commitment.


Lastly, as our community continues to open and resume regular activities we also began discussion on how St. Johns will move forward with activities as well which is very exciting. We will be organizing a planning committee soon for our Annual Oktoberfest- we thought this would be a great way to gather- have fun and enjoy some fellowship with each other as we move forward! If you are interested in helping please reach out to Pastor or to Abby or any Council member.


Council will continue to meet during the summer months to address the ongoing needs of the church. In the meantime, please continue to reach out with any questions, concerns or ideas to Pastor or any Council member.


Until next time--


Congregation Council


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