Learn about the Episcopal Church

Starting Sunday, November 1, All Saints Day, Father Mark Moore will be leading an educational series about the Identity of the Episcopal Church.  The first session will be devoted to the history of the church.  These classes are for anyone new, experienced in the church, or just curious about what we believe and do.  Father Moore is an interesting and engaging speaker; he guarantees that everyone will learn something they didn't know before.  Meet downstairs at 11:00 am, after church.

St. John's on YouTube

Thanks to Eliza Hallabeck of the Newtown Bee, there is now a video of our donut stop on YouTube, which accompanies her excellent article that can be found at http://newtownbee.com/Features/2009-10-08__15-19-15/Stopping+For+Donuts+At+St+John%e2%80%99s.

Donut Stop a Success

St. John's parishioners served over 500 donuts last Saturday.  Threatening weather forced the event indoors, where we had a warm, dry place with the delicious scent of Cheryl and Bruce's apple-flavored donuts.  Steve created a beautiful poster to welcome guests to St. John's and briefly describe our worship and community activities.  Thanks not only to those who worked at the event, but especially to all our guests who enjoyed donuts and beverages, plus waited so patiently and graciously on line.
