STEWARDSHIP THOUGHT - 1 Cor. 3:7 – “So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.” Isn’t that the truth! It’s not just true about preachers like Paul; it’s true about all of us in the Christian life. God can do such wonderful things with our feeble efforts. This is so very true of our gifts to the Lord’s work in the church. From His generous giving to us, we learn to give generously. Then the Lord blesses this response to His grace in turn, and He uses our very giving to continue to bless us in the church where we hear of His gracious generosity to us. The cycle repeats, and the Lord gives growth!
TODAY IS FRIENDSHIP SUNDAY! We welcome all of our members and guests to this SPECIAL, multi-generational worship and fellowship time. Following the worship service, we will be gathering for a potluck dinner, fellowship, BINGO, and other age appropriate activities. Please plan to stay and join us.  ALL are welcome!
            Let’s Show Christ Love Through Helping Others In Need
Please consider sharing God’s love with others by donating to the Abiding Care Pregnancy Resource Center.  Abiding Care is a local ministry outreach dedicated to the value and dignity of human life.  It is to be an extension of Jesus Christ’s love to anyone facing an unplanned pregnancy.  The Center provides emotional, spiritual, and physical support, medical services and referrals to community resources for on-going care.  Our church family would like your help supporting this ministry.  See the donation list on the table in the Narthex. Donations will be collected in the church narthex throughout the month of February!
The Lenten season is fast approaching. Our Ash Wednesday Lenten Service will be NEXT Wednesday, February 26th at 6:30pm here at St. John’s. We will be hearing the word according to the Gospel of JONAH.
The 2020 Worship Assistant Sheet is on the table in the Narthex.  Prayerfully consider volunteering to help keep our services running smoothly.  We currently need a Greeter and Altar Guild for March.
