Council Corner January

Hello and welcome to Council Corner,

Happy New Year and welcome to the first edition of Council Corner for 2020. Council is very excited to continue to work closely with Pastor as we move forward into a fresh year taking care of the business of the church as well as developing and growing our work in the community and here at St. Johns.

Plans are in place for our Annual Meeting on January 26, 2020 following worship service. Please join us as we tend to the business of the church for the new year. We will hear from Pastor, Council and our various committees as well as have a comprehensive budget review and vote. We hope to see you there!

The final celebratory event for our 175th anniversary will be held on Friday January 24th, 2020 at Ripa’s restaurant beginning at 6:00 pm. The committee and council have many exciting things planned for the evening and we hope you will mark your calendar and join in the fun and festive celebration!. RSVP cards can be found at church on any usher station and of course in the church office.

Lastly, as their terms come to a close, Council would like to take this opportunity to thank Sam Miller and Carol Graham for their many years of service to Council and to St. Johns. Thank you both!
