Dear members of St. Johns,
On December 10, new mitigation was laid out by the State of PA limiting indoor gatherings to 10 or less people. In light of these new mandates, the Pastor and Council have decided to suspend in-person service beginning this Sunday 12/13 through January 10. We will resume in-person worship on January 17 if the regulations have been lifted. We will be posting virtual sermons each week on our YouTube channel (subscribe to get automatic notifications), our Facebook page and our website.
If you ordered poinsettias adn have not picked them up yet, please contact Shirley Zeger at 717-328-5858 to coordinate pick-up.
WIFS is still seeking donations for the clothes purchased as Christmas gifts for local children. We have a goal to raise $500 towards this mission. If you would like to contribute, please make checks payable to WIFS.
One other note, the plan to proceed with a joint pastoral search process has begun with St. Stephen's in Upton. A productive meeting was held with the Synod and they will be providing direction as we move forward with this next chapter of St. John's. Interim Pastor Heintzelman has agreed to stay on with us until June, for which we are very grateful. If you are interested in serving on the joint-call committee, please let any Council person know. A survey has been mailed. Please fill this out and return to the church at your convenience.
Please stay safe in these unusual times.
