Stone Soup – March 15, 2015
St. John’s Sunday School and the Outreach Committee hosted parishioners at the annual Stone Soup Luncheon. Originally a Portuguese fairy tale, the Stone Soup story reveals the power of community action. And what action it was: parishioners of all ages shared their treasure (donated vegetables were provided by Sunday School students and 38 quarts of soup were purchased ‘to go’), talent (more than 90 quarts of soup were cooked up at home), and time.
Haitian Fête – March 8, 2015
St. John’s was groovin’ to a Haitian vibe on Sunday, March 8th, when over 200 people filled the church for the 5:00 p.m. service to celebrate our partnership with the St. Matthias School in Deslandes, Haiti. An authentic Haitian dinner followed in Bleecker Hall. Spirit raiser, friend raiser and fund raiser, our second Haitian Fête was a joyous celebration of our expanding definition of “neighborhood.”
