Our fall rummage sale began at 8 am this morning until 2 pm and again Saturday from 8 am until Noon. I encourage you to check out many of deals available, including the delicious assortment of baked goods. The rummage sale is more than a fundraiser; though it is this, and we are grateful for the income that comes to the church through the hard work of Becky Johnson-Stewart, Geri Roth, Bea Smith, Vivian Roberts, John Stewart and others. We are further blessed by all who generously donate items and all who generously purchase them. The rummage sale brings dozens of individuals to our parish house and face to face contact with St. John’s. The promotion for the rummage sale also promotes awareness of our congregation. It is opportunity for people within the parish to serve and get involved. So, stop by the rummage sale, even if it’s just to say hello to some of your spiritual family. Remember, “It’s not just me, it’s We.”
The service will take place in the Parish House where we have Internet connection because it will be broadcast from Des Moines. We will be able to worship through watching the service live as well as receive Holy Communion from the Reserved Sacrament.
Join us for a hay ride in the beautiful setting of parishioner’s David and Ann Kendell’s farm. This is an inter-generational event, and all are welcome to attend. Refreshments will be served. Begins at 2 pm. Sign up via the Parish House. For more questions contact David or Ann Kendell.
According to the Book of Common Prayer, the festival of All Saints’ which can be observed on the Sunday following November 1st, is one of the principal feasts of the Christian Year (BCP, 15). To highlight the importance of this Sunday and to emphasize the communion or fellowship of the saints there will be a potluck on Sunday, November 4. Also, children and those who are young at heart are invited to attend the Eucharist dressed as their favorite saint.
Lord, we pray that your grace may always precede and follow us, that we may continually be given to good works; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
