Announcements for 4/4
During our Worship Service today we will welcome Denise & Howard Henry as the newest members of St. John’s ELC.
Thanks to all who brought Easter lilies to enhance the beauty of our worship space.
We continue to respond to the needs of our neighbors with our donations of money, food, and clothing. A box has been placed in the Narthex for you to place your gifts of nonperishable food items, or gently used clothing. All of your donations will be distributed through Sharing God’s Love.
Thanks to everyone who cooked, set up tables, served, furnished desserts, and those who cleaned to make our Friday Fish Fry a success!
We continue to provide worship in the sanctuary and ask that you please observe the social distancing guidelines and wear your mask. Should you not have one, it will be provided for you. We also continue to reach our members and those who wish to participate in the life and ministry of our congregation either inside our community or in far-away places. We welcome those who are not able to be here in person through Facebook.
With the popularity of online worship, Council has been looking into investing in a sound system for an improved online experience. Web pages for other local churches have been viewed and the churches consulted for how they accomplished their online service broadcasts. The company which installed a local church’s system, Sound & Images, has given us a proposal to do this work. With funding which has already been identified, the balance which needs to be donated or otherwise identified from current funds is approximately $10,000. Congregational approval is needed to implement the project, so a congregational meeting is scheduled for April 11. Please make every effort to attend this important meeting.

Quote of the week:
If you think that one person cannot make a difference in the world, consider what one cigar can do in a crowded restaurant.
