bible study
8 Week Immersive Bible Study: Mondays at 5:30pm.
The first half will focus on “What God is Up To in The World” and the second half looks at “Diving in With Jesus: What is Our Part”.
This is an exciting new pilot project by the United Church of Canada, co-authored by the Right Reverend Richard Bott, Moderator of the United Church of Canada, and Reverend Dave Anderson.
This program will serve to lay the foundational teachings that are no longer common knowledge, upon which to build and deepen one’s Christian faith.



animals
Blessing of the Animals Service, Sunday November 17th Bring your furry, purry and fine-feathered friends to be blessed! Be they on a leash, swimming in a tank or perched in a cage, barking, meowing, squawking or squeaking – they are all part of God’s good creation. If you have (or had) a pet but can’t bring it to church, simply bring a picture or a toy animal or a stuffy and we’ll bless your pet that way. Don't have a pet? Join us anyway and pray for other people's pets!    “Ask the animals and they will teach you the beauty of this earth.” ~ St. Francis of Assisi






Attention St. John's Knitters!
Our annual Winter Woollens Clothesline will go up on December 1. We are told by schools and shelters that hats, scarves and socks are most needed but of course mittens are welcome too! These can be placed in the white basket and will be separated for delivery in December.
