    Our fall Wednesday evenings are meant to provoke reflection on who we are and where God is calling us. How is God calling St. John’s in our day? We’ll read in the Acts of the Apostles and experience presentations on parish history, our changing context for ministry, and best practices in mission and ministry. Our clergy, veteran members, parish historians, and outside facilitators will lead us. The notes we generate will shape a parish vision and planning process.
