BIRTHDAY CAKES ON PENTECOST SUNDAY, JUNE 4th join us for a birthday cake buffet and an International potluck luncheon after service.  If you would like to provide a cake, please sign the sheet in the parish hall.


PARISH HALL DECORATIONS It has come to our attention that some of the table clothes and other decorations are being damaged during coffee hour.  These items can be expensive to replace each week, so we are asking that you take care and try not to damage the tablecloths in any way, or remove the decorations from the tables. If you would like to assist with the decorations each month, please contact Candy in the church office.

SJD MAINTENANCE REQUEST FORMS are now available in the parish hall.  Anyone who sees a need for maintenance or repair to the building or grounds is encouraged to complete a form and put it in the completed form tray located below the blank forms.  If you have any questions, please contact Greg Diehl.

 SMALL GROUPS meet weekly in several locations.  In a small group you will experience spiritual growth, develop wonderful friendships, give and receive encouragement and discover and use your spiritual gifts, all in a casual, safe, interactive setting.  See the clipboards in the parish hall for more information.

MEMBER PHOTOS We are updating our records with photos of our congregation. We are asking for everyone’s helps with this project.  We have placed a camera with detailed instructions on the table near the Sunday school room.  Please use a blank wall as your back drop for all pictures. We are asking that you take individual headshot (shoulders up) of each other (see example with this article), as well as a family photo if possible.  Please complete the form found with the camera as this will ensure we have the correct name with the face(s).

SUNDAY COFFEE HOUR DONATIONS   You don’t have to be a baker to donate some goodies for Sunday Coffee Hour.  Store bought donations are just fine.  But PLEASE, bring something.  Just drop them in the kitchen when you arrive at Church.  We appreciate it.  Thanks!

 THE LORD’S LIGHTHOUSE needs financial support and nonperishable food. The mission no longer needs plastic containers. Please place your donations in the Lord’s Lighthouse area of the Parish Hall.  Checks may be written to St. John Divine, earmarked for the Lord’s Lighthouse.

 HEALING STARTS HERE grief support group will meet 2nd and 4th Monday of each month at 10:30. All are welcome.

 PRAYER REQUESTS for prayers at services and in the bulletin please fill out a card at the Information Center. YELLOW cards are for thanksgivings; BLUE cards are for intercessions and Red cards are for Military.  Requests are for 2 Sundays with the exception of Military.  If you need longer time, please specify the date you would like the request removed, then place your cards in the basket or call the office (813) 633-3970.
