Member Support Coordinator
Outreach Committee is looking for a volunteer to be St. John’s Member Support Coordinator. This person would gather a list of individuals who sign up to be part of an “on-call” list that would be willing to provide help to members of the St. John’s congregation should a need arise. A congregation member in need would be able to contact the Member Support Coordinator and arrange help for needs such as: a ride to/from church, an appointment or the grocery store, lawn care/snow removal if they are unable to do it themselves, or if a family is in need of meal support due to a birth, death, or hospitalization. If you are willing or interested in being the contact person for this new ministry please contact Anna Van Westen 437-9643, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Disaster Relief Coordinator
Outreach Committee is also looking for a volunteer to be St. John’s Disaster Relief Coordinator. The NALC is asking every congregation to appoint such a person. This individual will receive information from the NALC whenever a national or international disaster occurs. This information will identify specifically what help is needed. The congregation’s Disaster Relief Coordinator will then inform the congregation of the requested assistance and will coordinate the contributions. Also, if a local disaster should occur, the Disaster Relief Coordination will be our contact with the NALC and will work with them in receiving relief for our local needs. For more information, or to volunteer for this position, please contact Anna Van Westen 437-9643, email@example.com. Thank you!
New Testament Bibles
In the back of the sanctuary, fellowship hall and in the narthex are paperback editions of the New Testament. Please take one and keep it if you need it, or give it to someone you think may want it – a neighbor, friend, co-worker, or even a stranger. This would be an easy way to share Christ’s message, love, and redeeming grace.
The 2014 flower chart is now in the binder in the library. Two or more families can sign up per Sunday. The cost of the flowers is $15.00 per family. You can place your donation for the flowers in the offering plate on Sunday. If you do so, please be sure to designate that in the appropriate box on your offering envelope.
