We are an Opening and Affirming church that is a diverse community forming a united congregation, seeking to grow in faith, share it with others, and serve God's people wherever the need is present. We are living God's love and ALL are invited!!
We will be serving as the intake center for the CARITAS women's group beginning Saturday, March 9 continuing nightly through April 20. First English and the Church of the Good Shepherd will be taking Monday and Tuesday nights. We need members of St. John's to serve as hosts for Wednesday through Sunday nights. There should be at least two people signed up for each day. Feel free to sign up on a day that is already taken but touch base with those people to coordinate refreshments.
We will be serving approximately 40 women each night and want to greet them with an Extravagant Welcome. As they won't have supper until somewhere between 7:00 and 8:00 p.m. and lunch was many hours earlier, we would like to serve a "substantial snack" – something sweet (cookies, brownies, cupcakes, etc.), something savory/salty (chips with salsa or cheese and crackers), and something healthy (fruit, veggies, etc.).
There will be a list with the sign up sheets of nonperishable items that we will need. All donations can be placed in the kitchen with a note indicating it is for CARITAS. Look for more information on Sunday mornings. If you have any questions, please see Elisabeth Burnette. Paper sign-up sheets will be in the Parlor beginning February 10th.
