Wishing you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. You are invited to join us for the start of Advent on Sunday, November 29th at 10:00 a.m. for in-person or Zoom worship. CDC guidelines on social distancing and the wearing of a mask are followed.
As is our custom at St. John’s UCC, we will stay after worship on Sunday, November 22 (this Sunday) to prepare and decorate our sanctuary for the Christmas/Advent season. Your help is needed and appreciated.
Those staying are asked to wear a mask. To help with social distancing, plans have been made to limit some of the decorations and to have all boxes and decorations out and ready to go. It is hoped that we can safely work together to create a beautiful Christmas atmosphere.
November 29th is the first Sunday of Advent.
If you are planning to stay or to come up and help please RSVP to the church office this week to help us plan better, but this is not required. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
At this time, the Fort Bend Family Promise team, has decided that St. John’s UCC will not be a host church for FBFP.
Recognizing that homelessness for children in our community is still a critical issue, we want to encourage members of our congregation to consider various ways to support the mission of FBFP.
