High School Mission Trip Planning
The current high school mission group (Belize) will resume its regular schedule, meeting on the first and second Wednesdays of the month from 7:00-8:00 p.m.
A group for younger youth who are interested in mission trip planning will also begin gathering this fall, date and time to be announced. Please see Heather Annis if you have an 8th or 9th grader who is interested in participating.
Confirmation candidates will meet on October 15th and 22nd from 11:30-1:30. All sessions are required. The bishop’s visit is scheduled for Sunday, November 19th. Please see Heather Annis or Robin Higbie for more information.
Trunk or Treat!
Save the date and start planning your entry! On Sunday, October 29th from 6:30 to 8:00 pm, we will be hosting a new fundraiser to benefit youth mission trips. “Trunk or Treat” is a safe alternative to traditional Halloween festivities that relies on participation from the whole church and surrounding community. We need YOUR help to fill our back parking lot with cars, trucks, and other vehicles, each decorated in a theme of your choice. Got a family of swimmers? Create a pool-themed display. Hey, St. John’s choir members! How about a musical entry? There will be prizes! Trick or treaters wear their Halloween costumes and go from car to car – each family or group who sponsors a car provides wrapped candy. Entry fee is $20 per decorated vehicle; suggested donation for trick or treaters is $5. There will be apple cider, snacks, and some fun activities for children as well. Spread the word to your family, friends, and neighbors! Please note: kids 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent or adult. For more information or to sign up for a slot, please see Heather Annis or Wendy Foley.
