Pentecost: The great thing about the flames of the holy Spirit is that it even works inside—perfect for when you are confined. Since we can’t be in church on Pentecost, we hope that you will participate by dressing up in red, taking a picture and sending it to the office. Bonus points if you have a fire (candle, fire pit, gas stove, etc.) nearby. Get out the streamers and red balloons. Go a little crazy! We will be integrating the pictures into our Pentecost online worship on May 31st. Please send the pictures to gro.notpmahsnhojts@eciffo by May 24th at 7pm.

Lil’ Free Pantry Supplies:  We are looking for donations of shelf-stable, easy open, ready to eat products along with individually wrapped utensils, clean socks, and water. Our youth at St. John’s saw a need to serve their local community by providing a way to have Ready-to-Eat foods available 24/7. The pantry sits on Queen’s Way for easy access and visibility (over 50 items have already cycled through!). If you would like to contribute: Place them right in the pantry or if the pantry is full, you can also place items by the kitchen door of the parish hall; please call/email the office with questions: 757-722-2567 or gro.notpmahsnhojts@eciffo.

Contest: Lil’ Free Pantry utensil* contest. Help us, help others. We are trying to include pre-package utensils with the each item in our pantry. Here is how you can help: collect all your pre-packaged extra carry-out utensils you have collected over the past weeks and win an award!  The Top TWO donations will win a special prize. Contact Mark to arrange drop off or pick-up (*note: they must be pre-wrapped)! You can help others and clear out space in a drawer.

Bible Study Re-Zooooms: Our Wednesday Bible study has restarted and we will meet via Zoom on Wednesday at 3:00 PM. We are continuing our study on The Revelation to John. Contact Mark if you would like to join in on the discussion. gro.notpmahsnhojts@kraM or 757-722-2567.
