Greetings St. John’s,
I pray this note finds you well and enjoying these beautiful summer months. I wanted to give a brief update on a change to our current staff. Maria Weaver has served faithfully as our Nursery Minister for the past five years. Her joyful presence has made families feel welcome each and every Sunday and the relationships she has built with our youngest members is nothing short of a gift.
Since the pandemic, Maria has shifted her ministry from nursery care to our food pantry, worship services, and assisting in a myriad of ways throughout the past year. She has since discerned a call to resign as a staff member, so she can more fully participate in life here as a parishioner! You will continue to see Maria, however her time and energy will be spent exploring ways to create a more welcoming and affirming community at St. John’s. Please join me in thanking Maria for her dedication to our kids and adding such joy to our community. We certainly look forward to worshipping with her and co-creating an atmosphere of love and affirmation with her.
As we seek a new Nursery Minister, I invite your prayers and thoughts. If you know of anyone who might be interested in this part time position, please let us know.
I remain faithfully yours,
