OUTREACH is Episcopal Relief and Development. This year we will be contributing to the general fund because there have been so many disasters in this country as well as internationally. We trust the ERD knows who needs our help most. Please make your checks payable to St. John the Divine and write ERD on the note line. Thank you for your continuing generosity.
GRACE GARDEN Thank you to our silent donor for the beautiful amaryllis. The color adds wonder to our Grace Garden. God is good and is presently helping our garden grow. Members have graciously helped our garden with bricks, too. A new “Brick Order” envelope is available for easy ordering of a brick. Just fill it out, write a check, insert the check in the envelope and place it in the offering plate.
