Reflections from Fr. Andersen

From the Desk of The Rev. Richard B. Andersen

This Month summer begins, even though spring seemed cold and windy, and the blooms from flowering, trees and shrubs were a bit hesitant in making their appearance.

School is over, as is our Sunday Church School and we thank all our teachers, and Lynda Hammond our Superintendent.

Our young people will be raising money for their mission trip at the Fish & Chips Dinner on Saturday, June 3rd from 5:30PM to 7:30PM.

Summer is also a time to read books you have set aside or piled up on a table.

If you take a trip and decide to go to church there, bring home a Sunday bulletin and comments on the service.

One of the best ways to provide music for June Sundays and July, and August as well is to make a “Pick Up” choir. St. John’s is about the only church in the        Diocese to do so.  Thanks to Drew Kreismer.

Looking ahead to the rest of the summer in July and August and eventually the Fall.

*We will have a summer issue out in July which will be anticipating events for the fall and winter.


Do try to keep up your attendance, and any churches you visit, please bring back a copy.

Blessings to all,
