St. John's Prayer Chain Sign Up  – As our lives change, we often find we have more time to give to others or find that we need to redirect our priorities.  Therefore, we are asking those who would like to remain or be on St. John’s prayer chain to sign up on the sheet in the narthex.  There are two options for the prayer chain; one is the phone tree and the other is email.  You may sign up for one or both.  The yellow sheet will be on the table for a couple of weeks and then a new prayer chain will be mailed to all those wishing to give their time to this important ministry.  Thank you to all those who have served in the past, we hope you will continue to do so.   Questions, please call Lyla Anderson 815-664-2411.

A ping-pong table has been donated to the youth.  We are in need of someone with a truck to pick it up in Princeton.  If you are able to help, please contact Jane Krysiak or the church office.  Thank you.

WOMEN’S SPRING BIBLE STUDY

In the Women’s Spring Bible Study we will take a close look at the meaning behind each of the Beatitudes and how these truths can shape our choices every day.  “Turning Your Heart Toward God” by Kay Arthur, David & BJ Lawson is a no-video, no homework Bible study.  We will work through the study book in class as a group with Scripture verses and insights to share and discuss.

We will begin Thursday. April 12th and continue through May.  For your convenience the same session will be available at 10:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. each Thursday.  If you have any questions, contact Jan Delvallee at 815-228-0252.
