Remember Your Lenten Prayer Partner

Send a card to your prayer partner and on Easter reveal to them it was you praying for them throughout Lent. You can get them a little gift if you like, a card, a note, flowers, a prayer journal, these are all ways you can reveal yourself. However you choose please be sure to let them know you were their prayer partner. Encourage children and adults to continue to keep their "chosen" person and others in their prayers, spend some time getting to know that person in a special way.

"God, please be especially close to (Lenten Prayer Partner) today. Help them to know You, love You and serve You. Help them resist any temptations they may face today, and bring them through any struggles they may currently be dealing with. Please help me to be a positive influence and encouragement to others as I draw near to you and inspire and encourage them to do the same."

March Mission Madness Month

Uganda Scholarships

We are not quite ready to have our Mission Oyster Roast ... well, we are all MORE than ready...but the children of clergy in The Diocese of Northern Uganda still need schooling. Please consider a scholarship this year for a clergy child to go to a Christian school. A scholarship of $150 for a year's tuition there is comparable in their economy to the $8,000 average Christian school here. What a wonderful gift to that child, their family and to the community, keeping Christian education alive for the Diocese. You may make a check out to St John's with scholarship in the memo line or Click here to give online.

Encourage Lieber Inmates this Easter

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son so that whoever believed in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

Please share the love of Christ with inmates at Lieber Correctional Unit. We are his beloved children and few men at Lieber know this, most do not have our hope and love of Jesus Christ.

This Easter St. John's is likely the only church to send cards to Lieber's 1100 inmates. We trust God that we will send many cards of hope at Easter so that they may know God loves them and desires a relationship with them.

You will find the collection basket for your cards on Saturdays when you collect your Communion kit and Sunday in Walton Hall. Monday-Wednesday you can bring your cards to Guerry Hall. The last date for collection of the cards will be Sunday, March 21, 2021.

Please remember that cards should have no adornments (such as ribbons or stickers), you should not sign your full name (please use either your first name or "a friend") and do not seal cards since they must be screened for security.
Thanks for helping us give hope to the inmates at Lieber. God bless you.

At St. John's


Sunday, Mar. 14
Gracious Father, whose blessed Son Jesus Christ came down from heaven to be the true bread which gives life to the world: Evermore give us this bread, that he may live in us, and we in him; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

For Persecuted Churches

We pray for persecuted churches around the world. For the month of March we pray for the nation of China. Heavenly Father, Christians and Christian churches in China are suffering due to Communist and post-Communist oppression, agnosticism, authoritarian rule, and restrictions that limit Christian worship. We pray for the Christian churches in China to continue to grow despite all these persecutions. Enliven their spirits by the power of the Holy Spirit. Lord, in your mercy. Hear our prayer.
