St. John’s New Member Class

St. John’s new member’s class will be on Sunday, July 7 after our worship service. (from 10:45am to 12:45 pm). The class is open to all adults who are interested in joining our church. The class will cover a brief overview of the United Church of Christ denomination and St. John’s UCC. A lunch will be provided. Please contact the church office at 330-364-4458 or church.secretary@doverstjohns.org  if you are interested in becoming part of the St. John’s UCC church family. This class will be fun and meaningful. 

 

Pastor Dotty’s Retirement

As we have announced earlier, Pastor Dotty is planning to retire at the end of June. We want to celebrate this milestone of her career and wish her the best as she moves on to new endeavors. A reception for Dotty is planned for this Sunday, June 16, following worship, in the Fellowship Center. Please plan to join us to show our appreciation for Dotty’s contributions over the past dozen years. Her last day is Sunday, June 23. 

 

FLOCK (Free Lunch fOr Christ’s Kids) & Blessing Box

Once again, St. John’s will be providing free brown bag lunches for children and adults in the church neighborhood and beyond, beginning Monday, June 3and we will continue each Monday through August 19 from 11:00am through 1:00pm. The need is still there, and we will be out there helping feed those in need this summer. You can help by making donations of sandwich bags, snack sized bags, bags of carrots or fruit, small bags of chips, applesauce or pudding cups, granola bars or bottled water. Cash donations are also accepted.

Also, the Blessing Box will continue to be filled with food. As I am sure you all know, groceries are much more expensive these days. Costs for the box have risen dramatically. The box is being used daily. Donations of laundry soap, peanut butter and jelly, cereals, granola bars, canned spaghetti-o’s, spaghetti sauce and noodles, canned fruit and vegetables, bread and applesauce cups would be appreciated. Please, no bags of beans.       These are two important missions of St. John’s. Let’s continue our good work.

Thanks for all your help!! Belinda
