August 19: Back to School Donations and Backpack Blessings

The kids who are part of the Community Youth Program and Congregations in Action communities need supplies for back to school – on Sunday morning, August 19, please bring donations – see the list below. Also on that day, we'll be blessing backpacks – kids, bring along yours and you'll receive your very own tag with a prayer on the back of it!

August 19 is the day of our parish picnic. Come to the 10:00 for blessing of the backpacks, school donations and to meet our new minister to children and families, Chrissy Mortlock, and head over to Fishburn Park after the service for a potluck, fellowship and games! (Bring a side dish or dessert – St. John's will be providing fried chicken and cold drinks.) Facebook invite is here!

CYP and CIA kids can use the following:

hand-held pencil sharpeners

cleaning/Clorox wipes

one-subject notebooks (wide rule)

pocket folders

hard-case crayon boxes


glue sticks

composition notebooks

dry erase markers
