On the way up for the children’s sermon, our children collect spare change that is given to Naomi’s Heart Mission in General Santos City, Philippines. Every quarter feeds three children at the mission. Thusands of dollars in change has been collected, a little bit at a time.
These six bits were spotted a few Sundays back, waiting to be given by a smiling adult to an excited child—both happy to feed the poor.
Saint John’s held a Ministry Fair last Sunday following worship. Committees hosted displays in an effort to help folks understand what different groups do and how members may get involved. A covered dish luncheon was also enjoyed by all.
Our thanks to all the committees who put together the great displays and answered questions. We also thank you for your diligent ministry on these committees throughout the year. May the Lord bless you with fruit from your labors.

If you haven’t joined us for an evening of Vespers, consider it this Sunday night at 6:00. We meet at the Rymans’ home, 620 West Kivett Street in Asheboro, NC. The evening begins with fellowship and finger food in the dining room. After 30-45 minutes of snacking and laughing, we move to the living room to sing evening prayer.
When the service concludes, we move back to the dining room table to see if we can finish off the goodies.
This is what Vespers sounds like:
