Younkers Community Days

Thank you to all those who bought or sold booklets for Younkers Community Days. We sold 78 booklets for a total of $390! And we will receive a portion of the Dubuque Younkers Store booklet sales sometime in December because we sold more than 75 booklets. Thank you so much to all who helped to make this fundraiser a success!




Advent Evensong

Come to St. John’s Episcopal Church to celebrate the beginning of Advent with Evensong on Sunday, December 3, at 4:30 p.m.


Christmas Flowers

The Altar Guild would like to purchase 2 sprays of “live” flowers for the altar and have Flowers on Main  create 2 sprays of artificial flowers to be placed on tables.  These arrangements could be used until Spring 2018.  We would, also, purchase a few poinsettias.  All purchase of flowers will be paid with congregational contributions and Altar Guild flower memorials.

Please consider donating towards Christmas flowers. If giving by check, write “flowers” in the Memo line.




 This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, so we’re

asking for everybody’s help!

The Cookie Walk happens on Saturday, December 2, from 8AM to 2PM.

Christmas décor and gift items that you wish to donate can be dropped off now during normal office hours.  We will set up for the sale on Wednesday, November 29th at 1 PM.

Now is the time to start planning and preparing your cookies, candy, baklava, cakes, and breads to sell.  We would really appreciate it if every family unit could make at least one item to sell for this event.  Making multiple items would help immensely, as we always run out by the end of the sale.

Food items can be dropped off on Friday, December 1st from 2PM to 6PM.

And of course we hope that you will come shop the day of the sale, have some soup and bread for lunch, and share in the fun of the day.

Questions?  Please call Becky Johnson-Stewart at 563.590.0854.



Prayer for Discernment to Guide Our Search for a New Rector at St. John’s

Be with us and guide us, Holy Spirit of God, as we seek your will for the future of our parish. Help us to discern the needs and hopes of your people at St. John’s Church, so that our search for a rector may proceed with clear vision and joyful obedience to your call to us. We pray though our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen (From Christ Church, Westerly, RI)

Collect for the Twenty-fourth Sunday after Pentecost (Proper 26)

Almighty and merciful God, it is only by your gift that your faithful people offer you true and laudable service: Grant that we may run without stumbling to obtain your heavenly promises; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
