Newcomers' Events

We offer the newcomer opportunities to connect with other newcomers and longer-term members through our coffee hour on a regular Sunday in the Parish Hall after the 10 am service. 

We also have more intentional newcomer welcome events from time to time. Participants introduce themselves and share questions, observations and hopes about St. John's. They receive packets of information and invitation to participate in any of the organizations or activities we have. Space is also given to those who want simply to be quietly part of the worship on Sunday. These gatherings also are scheduled and announced in advance.
