RECTOR'S WEEKLY MESSAGE ~
One of the great challenges facing our churches in this generation is to foster in all the faithful a sense of personal responsibility for the mission of the Church, and for a much more active engagement on the part of the people in the pews, our members. (Pope Francis)
Nowhere is the need for this level of commitment and personal responsibility more evident at St. John's than the level of support for the Annual Mission budget of our parish. This past Sunday at the new Adult Forum & Cafe, Nancy Eichacker, co-chair of the Rector Search Committee, described the dilemma that this creates for our parish:
SUNDAY MORNING EXPERIENCE
PROGRAMS & MINISTRIES
Grow, Proclaim,& Serve
Our Mission at St. John's is to nurture Christ-centered lives in our children, teens and adults which will find its deepest expression in carrying out our Lord's command to love one another as He loves us. We express our discipleship through joyous worship, welcoming all who come to us, empowering Christian education, sustaining a compassionate and kind fellowship, all the while working in the world for the justice, reconciliation and peace of God's Kingdom.
We are a Christian fellowship that seeks to reflect the broad and changing demographics of our community. We welcome any and all who feel called to join in our faith community and our mission to grow in faith and numbers, proclaim the Good News of God in Christ and, beginning locally to answer our Lord's call to seek justice, reconciliation and Shalom for all humanity.
