Connecting With God Through Prayer
 

Throughout the scriptures – both the Old Testament and the New – we are given many different instructions on how to pray. We are encouraged to pray together and alone. This summer we are going to do our best to CONNECT WITH GOD through prayer. Beginning Jun. 15, and going through Jul. 20, we will learn about some of the many different ways to pray, and actually spend some time practicing them. One Sunday we will focus on the Lord’s Prayer. Another Sunday we will spend some time in Silent Prayer. And we’ll also try prayer beads, and pray in color using art.

It is going to be a very experiential summer! We look forward to seeing you in worship, as we do our best to CONNECT WITH GOD! 

Sunday Worship Schedule: traditional style worship at 9 am, Sunday school for all ages at 10 am, and contemporary style worship at 11 am.

St. John’s is again partnering with Trinity UMC in Granite City to distribute lunches for needy Granite City school children this summer. Many volunteers are needed to distribute lunches from more than 12 sites. The sites will be positioned throughout the community to provide better access for children to pick-up lunches. Two volunteers for each site are needed each day, beginning May 28 through Aug. 15.
