Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost
Weekday Liturgies The congregation is invited to attend Evening Prayer on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 5:30 p.m. in the Church; the midweek Eucharist is held on Wednesday at 12:15 p.m. in Saint Mary’s Chapel.
Christian Education: Saint John’s offers Christian Education for youth on Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. Classes for children ages 4 through high school meet in the classrooms above Trimble Hall. New participants are always welcome.
Adult Forum: Paul and Christianity’s First Expansion ~ The first believers claimed that they were touched by God through the Resurrection of Jesus. The persuasiveness of the claim to themselves and others must be the key to understanding how a failed messianic movement made its presence felt across the Mediterranean world within decades and with no other visible means of support. Join us in Saint Mary’s Chapel following the 8:00 a.m. service as we follow the story beyond the Sunday school teachings of your childhood.

Bester School’s Young Student Needs – Sometimes when small accidents happen to young students at school, they need to change their underwear. Bester does not have an infinite supply to offer, so for years, St. John’s has helped to provide. Again this year, we ask for donations of underwear for both boys and girls in sizes 4, 6, and 8. (Please no boxers or bikinis.) Contact Lou Lamb (301)437-5704 with your greatly appreciated donations. Thank you.
Do you have plans for Thanksgiving? Fixing dinner for family? Going to visit family or friends? Not sure what you are doing yet? Saint John’s has been so generous with their support of the Café over the years that Susan and I wanted to do something to show our appreciation. So we would like to propose reviving what, according to what we have heard, was a tradition of having Thanksgiving Dinner at the Church. This would be a Parish Family event so we could give thanks to the parish for their support, not only to the Café, but to all of the outreach programs that we all contribute to. We would prepare the turkey, gravy and mashed potatoes and you bring a side dish to share. If you don’t have plans consider joining us and bringing your family and friends! Starting this week there will be a sign-up sheet at the Antietam Street entrance. Please lets us know how many would be coming and what dish you are going to bring. Where: Trimble Hall When: Thanksgiving Day at 1:00 p.m.
