Wrapped In His Love!
We are starting a new group at St. John’s called “Wrapped In His Love!” We are looking for beginner to experienced sewists to meet twice a month with the goal of making comfort or prayer quilts. We will write for a Thrivent grant and have some fabric and thread donated but it would be helpful if members have a small “stash” of fabric, thread, and patterns to get started.
We would also welcome knitters and crocheters to join us for the evening and donate blankets for our cause.
We need to decide our evening to meet. If you are interested please come to our information meeting THURSDAY, OCTOBER 4, 6:30pm in the Oasis.
Healthy Foods for Kids! Distribution on Saturday, October 6th at the Quincy Senior & Family Resource Center. Distribution begins at 10:00am. Signup to volunteer that morning, should arrive by 9:00am, to receive instructions, and runs until 12 Noon.

Coming Soon! “Magnifying Gods Gifts”—Psalm 34: Recommitment and Re-envisioning Event
On Sunday October 7, 2018 we will begin a three-week stewardship emphasis with overall focus on “Magnifying God’s Gifts” using Psalm 34. We can learn a lot about magnifying God’s gifts by looking at past gifts given, anticipating gifts given in the future, all while celebrating the present gifts we have.
Each week during our emphasis, we will focus on these gifts. Please join us for both the worship services and the Bible studies. We will end our stewardship emphasis October 21, 2018 with one unified worship service at 10:00 AM with a special guest speaker, Rev. Randy Raasch (Hearts Overflowing Advisor) and a Consecration Sunday celebration luncheon at 11:30 AM in the Family Life Center.
