Sunday School Volunteers Sought
Do you like what we’re doing in Sunday School? Would you like to be a part of it next year? If you are not currently on our team of teachers, assistants, substitutes, and helpers, but would like to be for the fall of 2017, please contact Whitney Wolf to discuss further.

Youth/EYC News and Events
EYC Sings This Sunday
Do you love to sing at church?  Do you love to sing in the shower where no one can hear you?  If you answered yes to either of these questions, be sure to come to EYC this Sunday!  Junior EYC will meet at 4:30 p.m. in Discovery House, and after having a bit of fun (and warming up our voices), we’ll head over to the church at 5:00 p.m. to join in the Parish Hymn Sing!  Dinner will follow in Discovery House as usual.  Senior EYC-ers are encouraged to come early and sing as well!  Come as you are – there’s no need to get dressed up.  See you there and feel free to bring a friend!



Youth Confirmation Classes Begin February 26
All youth who are at least twelve years of age, or who have entered the seventh grade, are invited to pursue confirmation at St. John’s.  The first Confirmation Class will be held in the Discovery House immediately following the 9:15 a.m. service on February 26. Parents should attend this first class, as we will discuss the overall theology of confirmation as well as distribute the class schedule and requirements for the course.  Confirmation by Bishop Smith will occur during the 9:15 a.m. service on May 7 during his annual visit to the parish.




Contact Fr. Chase Ackerman with questions about youth events or if you would like to help out.
