Church News & Events


 We appreciate our friends Deacon Christine Garcia & Deacon David Curtis!  Christine and David have been holding services at St. John’s in recent months when The Rev. Bill Wells is away.   We extend our love and caring to Christine whose mother died on July 12.  Christine was scheduled to be with us the following 2 Sundays.  We are very grateful to David Curtis for stepping in to take Christine’s place.  Both Christine and David bring a spirit of caring and joy to St. John’s ministry.  We feel they are part of the St. John’s extended family.  Thank you Christine and David!   


August 17, 2003 – was DeWitt Long’s first Sunday as our organist, choir director, and valued friend! Bravo!  Encore!  DeWitt’s presence with us is “music to our ears!”


Save-the-date for Sunday October 1 Bishop visitation.  Bishop Gayle Harris is tentatively scheduled for a visitation to St. John’s on Oct 1.  We await details from the Diocese and will pass on as soon as available.  If you are interested in Confirmation, Reception or Reaffirmation of Baptismal Vows please speak with The Rev. Bill Wells now. 


The Cosby memorial stained glass window is now restored and reinstalledIt’s a beautiful window!  The conservatorScott Taylor made a recent assessment of the remaining windows and determined that the two single windows on the east end of the church, the Cowherd and Cocke windows, are our next priority for restoration.  He recommends doing both at the same time. 


Recent maintenance and/or improvements – there’s always something, but we’re on it!


The floor of the screened porch at the parish house was sagging.  The vestry made this a maintenance priority before someone fell through!  Church member and excellent carpenter Bob Harris found badly rotted floor joists.  He has replaced all the joists, now stronger and better than they were originally!  Then there will be new flooring, new screens and fresh paint!  We look forward to sitting on the new porch for gatherings during seasonable weather!
