Watering Instructions (PDF) Hope Kits This project of congregation member, Tora Moody, St. John’s is collects items that are placed into kits that can be given to people that are homeless in our community or nearby communities.  The church is constantly looking for donations to place in the kits, and then once they are ready are available for the taking.  They are easily carried in your car, and you can hand them out to the homeless as you meet them on your travels.  The kits contain items such as: packs of gum, small toiletry items, paper and pencil, snacks, gift cards to places like McDonald’s so they can get a meal, candy, etc.  Tora reports that when she has given these kits to people, that she is thanked profusely and sometimes the people cry as they are so happy to receive these items.  Advent Concert Series Each year St. John’s invites the entire community and surrounding area to join them for a series of Advent concerts to celebrate the joy of this special season.  Each year the concerts are different and special guest artists perform, but the first concert usually is Lessons and Carols, with this last year the St. John’s choir and the United Methodist Church’s Hand Bell Choir leading the concert with beautiful traditional Christmas music.  Three more concerts follow, each on Sunday afternoon.  Watch the Blog for more information on this coming year’s concerts.
