Advent Wreath Making - Nov 25th
On Sunday, November 25th we'll celebrate the beginning of Advent by gathering in the parish hall at 11:15 a.m. to make Advent wreaths with real greens. We'll sing Christmas carols and enjoy hot chocolate while we work. The cost for the workshop is $15 if you need a metal wreath form or $10 if you're reusing one. (Scholarships are available.) **No Sunday school or Youth Group Sunday, Nov 25th**
We have enough supplies for about 50 wreaths, and they'll be available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you'd like to guarantee a wreath for your family, send a check (made out to St. John's with "Advent Wreath" on the memo line) to the address below by Tuesday, November 13th. You may also hand Caroline a check personally on Sunday morning or at the office, but please do NOT put your Advent wreath check in the collection plate!

Contemplative Evensong meets every Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m. from September through May. Participants are welcome to join the cantor in the beautiful, meditative chant. Includes short periods of silent prayer. Please contact the office at 303-442-5246 for more information.
Grocery Card Program
If you buy these cards, load more money onto them at the store of your choice (Safeway or King Soopers), use them to pay for your groceries, St John's earns a 5% reward!
Bear in mind that nearly 500 households call St John's their spiritual home. Obviously the benefit to our church could be substantial, so we'd like for all parishioners to participate. For more information contact Janice Moore, Jim Podolak, or Caryl Stalick.
