"In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Grecian Jews among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food. So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, "It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. Brothers, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word."" - Acts 6:1-4
Therefore, in accord with Biblical precedent and Christian freedom and love, the constitution and bylaws of St. John describe the duties of the Board of Elders in this place:
December 1, 2017 - Brothers and Sisters in Christ, We are now in December--- where did the year go? Yes, it seems to go faster as we get older! The celebration of Jesus Christ birth will soon be here. This should not be just a one day celebration but an everyday joy that we should share with everyone. Let us all share the joy of Christmas and join in the worship services that are planned. Invite family, friends and neighbors to join in this celebration.
