St. John's Youth Ministry is hosting a multi-family garage sale at the church on Saturday, March 2nd, 2019 from 8 am until 2 pm in the Faith Center.


Spaces are available on a 'first come, first serve' basis until all have been reserved. Set-up times for those who reserve a spot are Friday, March 1st between the hours of 5:30 pm and 8:00 pm as well as on Saturday, March 2nd at 7 am.

All items that you bring are your responsibility. Any unsold items must be removed before you leave as well as any trash in your space. You cannot bring or sell any of the following: drugs, alcohol, fire arms, explosives, weapons of any kind, any profane materials or media, or anything else that we deem inappropriate.

Call St. John's office and ask for Gershon to inquire about a Booth Reservation. Only 20 spots available; spaces are limited. Reserve yours now!



ONE-DAY NEW MEMBERS CLASS

On Sunday, March 3rd, we will have  a one-day New Members Class after the 10:30 am service for anyone interested in joining St. John. With so many busy schedules, this style has been a great success and as such we are using it again. 


We will pare down the essence of our church and our traditions to give you the information you need. We will also provide lunch for you and your family as a way of saying 'Welcome!'.


Please note that even if you come to the class you are not obligated to join. However, it is a great chance to meet some new people and get an idea of what we are trying to do here at St. John. 


We do need a head count, however, to know how much food is needed. So, if you are interested, please contact Pastor Bell via texting or calling 979-270-1239, the church office at 979-865-2081, or email the office at sjlc@stjohn-bellville.org .



WATOTO CHILDREN'S CHOIR HOSTS

Host families are needed for the Watoto Children's Choir Concert.

Watoto has a belief that arranging local families to host the children of the choir can enrich their life experience. It will also be an invaluable opportunity for the host family to learn about and better understand African culture. If you wish to send love and care to those immaculate, polite, and disciplined children traveling from Uganda, contact Gershon in the church office. About ten families are needed to host. 



WATOTO CONCERT

Come out and join us at St. John for a free concert by the Watoto Children's Choir on March 8th, 2019 at 6:30 pm.

A Love Offering will be collected.
