Labor Day Yard Sale — Monday, September 3rd from 8 am to 1 pm
Small items can be dropped off at the St. John’s Parish House. We would appreciate that the donations of larger items wait toward the end of August. Please contact Phyllis Gibson for more information and possible special arrangements.
Rector’s Bible Study
The Rector’s Bible Study is on summer break until after Labor Day. The general decision of the group is to continue to meet Thursday evenings at 7 pm at the rectory when it resumes. We most likely will begin with the Book of Genesis.
If there is enough interest, a “summer school” topical study will be offered called “Hell and the Devil”. It would most likely begin the middle of July and continue through August. Please let Fr. Richard know if you are interested.
Save the Dates!

King George Summer Lunch Bunch Program
King George Summer Lunch Bunch is preparing for its tenth summer of feeding hungry children in King George County, and they need our help! During the school year, roughly one-third of elementary school aged children receive free or reduced-cost meals, subsidized by the USDA. When school closes for the summer, so ends these meals. This organization bridges the nutritional gap, helping families stretch their available food dollars. This helps these children return for a new school year in a better position to resume learning.
This summer they will deliver lunches two days per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Their program will begin on Thursday, May 31, and will end on Thursday, August 2. They need human resources: our help, our time, and our commitment to help them to meet this challenge. They also consistently need the following non-perishable items throughout the summer and would appreciate any donations: grape jam (not jelly), creamy (not crunchy) peanut butter, and gently used children’s books (pre-K through high school). Monetary donations are also appreciated.
For more information, please visit their web site at http://kgsummerlunchbunch.org/index.html and / or “like” them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/KG-Summer-Lunch-Bunch-671781569533558/. If you have questions, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
