Save The Date: Favorite Hymns Sing-A-Long
September 20th after the 9:30a.m. service
Back by popular request! On Sunday September 20th after the 9:30am service, the St John's Gospel Band will lead a one-hour hymn sing. We'll gather on the patio, weather permitting. In the event of rain we'll gather in the parish hall. Plan to stay after church on this day and join in singing your favorite hymns. WHAT will we sing? That, in part, is up to you!
Hymns for the hymn sing will be drawn from your suggestions. We can't guarantee we'll have time that day to sing all the hymns you submit, but you might just hear your favorite hymn pop up on a Sunday later in the year! If you play an instrument -- guitar, fiddle, rhythm instrument, etc. -- please contact Tom and plan to join us. We'll rehearse once or twice before September 20th and Tom will get rehearsal info to you.
Fall Pledge Campaign Kick-Off BBQ

Good food, good company, no excuse to not be there!
Reading Camp Thank Yous!!
Another year of reading camp is behind us, and the Whittier kids had a blast learning about weather with scientists Peggy LeMone and Allen White; taking field trips to NOAA, the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and the East Boulder Rec Center; and discovering the joy of READING!
Of course, none of it would have been possible without LOTS of help from the people of St. John's and the Boulder community. Special thanks go to all of those who wolunteered. For a complete list, please see the weekly eAGLE newsletter.

STARTING this fall
Caregiver Support Group
The Caregiver Support Group at St. John's was formed in response to several parishioners experiencing "compassion fatigue", which can occur when one is caring for an elderly and/or ill loved one. The goal of the group is to provide emotional support and information about local resources.
We have found this group to be incredibly effective. Often members arrive harried, stressed, or emotionally spent. But by the end of the meeting, it seems that everyone has brighter looks on their faces and is more relaxed. Sharing worries, tears, and laughter is so healing.
Currently the group meets on the 3rd Monday of every month, from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. in the St. John's library. We would heartily welcome new members! For additional information, please call Amy French, 303-444-7171.
