FACES This is the acronym for Foundational Adult Christian Education Series. It is a new, interactive, topical study which will begin on Wednesday nights following Easter.

SJTD BOOK CLUB will meet at the home of Linda Barnum on April 27th to discuss “Sarah’s Key” by Tatiana De Rosnay. If you are interested in joining the book club or would like additional information, please call Linda Jeker at (813) 391-9552.


UPDATING YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION Please notify the office if your contact information has changed (telephone number, email address, etc.).

REVELATIONS If anyone is NOT getting Revelations or the E-Bulletin, please call the church office and/or Carole Del Castillo with your email address.

ENVELOPE BOXES There are still envelope boxes to be picked up in the parish hall on the conference table.  If you have ordered boxes for 2014, please pick up your box. It costs us approximately $2.50 each to mail them so we are trying to avoid that extra expense. Thank you.

Have you returned your pledge card?  Remember, we will soon call a full time rector and must maintain the ministries which are the reason this parish exists. Everyone’s help is needed. Please return your pledge card at your earliest convenience. Cards are available at the office and the ChurchWelcomeCenter.

VIDEO RECORDINGS (DVD’s) of the 11:00 am service are available, FREE OF CHARGE, each week for shut-ins.  For more information call Jean Brown 633-1116.

URGENT NEED FOR USHERS Ushers are needed – especially for the 8:00 am service.   Please call Ed Patrick at (813) 355-6598 for more information.

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.
