New Vestments Needed

The Church is in need of new Vestments for Advent and Lent., as our previous set has worn out. We would like to have a new purple set for Lent The set is handmade and costs about $3600. This would make an excellent memorial gift. If you would like to donate or know more, please speak with Fr. Monk

Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace Univeristy
Coming to Saint John’s

Financial Peace University consists of a 13-week video curriculum taught by financial expert Dave Ramsey that incorporates small-group discussions to encourage accountability and discipleship. Most financial programs are boring, with confusing information and monotonous instructors. Financial Peace is very different! It is highly entertaining for everyone, with a unique combination of humor, informative financial advice, and biblical messages.

Please leave a message for Father Monk if you wish to participate.
