Come to the Table: This Week at St. John’s

It’s a busy time at St. John’s. Don’t miss the wide array of opportunities for service, enrichment and fellowship.

Adult Forum: Come to the Table, Friday, Nov. 15, 7 p.m. in the Parish Hall
Every November people across this country gather at some form of table. Food will be shared, memories created, and blessings counted. Friendships are built and nurtured around the tables we occupy. Thanksgiving is one of the times each year when many of us set our tables so others can enjoy. This begs the question: How might we as a church continue that tradition by setting the table for others to feast?

Join us for a lively discussion using the work of Suzanne Stabile, renowned author and master teacher of the Enneagram. Not only is there room at the table at St. John’s, you may just find an abundance of dessert to sweeten the evening!

The Red Violin Chamber Music Free Concert, Monday, Nov. 18, 7 p.m. in the sanctuary
Join us for an evening of amazing music from a group with an equally amazing mission. Comprised of works by Corigliano, Caplet, Crumb, and Saint-Saëns, the program will delve deep into the world of fantasy and story-telling. The concert begins with Corigliano’s Red Violin Caprices – taken from the soundtrack of Hollywood’s famed film “The Red Violin,” and then travels through the American and French folk and fantasy worlds of Crumb’s Solo Cello Sonata and Saint-Saëns’ “Fantasie.” And finally, musicians delve into Edgar Allen Poe’s dark and terrifying literary world of the “Mask of the Red Death.” Learn more at ProjectMusicHealsUs.com
