Live Stream Worship: St. John's live streams its worship each week. You DO NOT have to be a member of Facebook or join in order to watch the service. Thank you to those who keep working to improve our online worship.
Council asks the congregation to pray that in the midst of chaos, we listen for God's voice to guide and comfort us and all of God's people.
Giving Tree! The Giving Tree is up for gifts for the children at Erie County Childrens Services to help foster children. Take a name, or two and their wish list is listed on the tag. Wrap the gifts (or Faith Life) can wrap them for you. Please attach the tag so we know who the gifts are for. Please return to the church by Sunday, December 3rd. Thank you for your generous and loving support. - The Faith Life Team
