Thanks, from the Wheeler’s – Dear St. John’s Family, Carol and I were so touched by your generous outpouring of love and affection in celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary.  We were amazed by the delicious food, the beautiful decorations, the lovely flowers, a wedding cake, pictures of our wedding album and all your generous gifts.  To everyone who had a part in this special day we give our heartfelt thanks!  Jim+

Summer Children’s Program… Godly Play Lite—During the summer we are offering Godly Play Lite in the Blue Godly Play Room for all ages of children and youth who would like to gather at 10:00 a.m. for sharing, hearing Bible stories, doing art work outside, and then going to Holy Communion together.  We invite you…. parents, teens, friends, aunts & uncles, to sign up for a Sunday.  You may want to tell a story, read from a book, share an idea for creating art work…take a journey around the church outside… all designed to help the group to share and wonder and think about the gifts that God has given us… in the world, in the lives of Jesus and His friends, and in our own lives as He has been present with us. There is so much they can learn from you! Linda Clapp will be available to help you plan your presentation or make suggestions. lindaclapp@optonline.net or lclapp@stjohns-stamford.org or 203-348-2619 x15. 204-862-9402 H.

When you’re bringing food to others, you are also feeding God. —Last week, St. John’s donated 18 pounds of non- perishable canned food to the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County. Did you know that a five pound bag of rice could feed 50 of God’s children? Thank you for your donations.

Dear fellow Parishioners/Friends: Thank you for all your help and support to help celebrate Father Jim and Carol’s 40th wedding anniversary. I could not have done it without all of you. You are an amazing group of Godly people. May the Lord bless you with his mercy and love always. 
Yours In Christ
