    Join parish member and instructor Lori Thrall for yoga on Monday evenings this summer at 5:30 pm in Room 215. For all ages, free of charge - bring your yoga mat and water bottle. Her dance background and diverse training helps Lori bring a classical yoga to her teaching (Iyengar, Hatha) and she likes to blend Pilates (Joe Pilates) into her teaching as well. Lori enjoys working with all ages and is excited to share her talent at St John’s in Columbia. She really appreciates the warm welcome that she and Scarlett have received from St John’s and can’t wait to give that back to the church by offering complimentary yoga for all levels.

  • St. Anne's Guild

    Received 371 recipes from 108 parish members. They are excited to get started!

    Thank you for being a part of the St. John's Cookbook!

  • SHIFT books are available in the church office for $14

    This is the text by Mark Tidsworth that we studied on Wednesday nights during Lent. We will be making references to this book throughout the year ahead, so come by the office and pick up a copy for your household.

    This is interesting reading as we strive to be a faithful community of disciples long into the 21st century and beyond!

  • Coins for Change

    We ask the congregation to recognize and continue its support for Coins for Change. The program is designed to provide financial support for our Weekend Backpack Food Program, which is coordinated by the St John's Servant Ministry's Committee to help bring needed food items to the students of Hand Middle School. The food is given to students of the school who have been identified as homeless or in transition between homes. Ten dollars in change will feed a child for one weekend. So keep scrambling for those coins from your piggy bank jars to the depths of your sofa cushions!  We have many great children to feed with both the food we bring as well as the love we share with them.

    Help the Servant Ministry Team fill the basket with items for Harvest Hope every Sunday.

  • Sponsor Altar Flowers

    The Guild of the Flowering Cross invites all parishioners to sponsor altar flowers for any given Sunday throughout the year (even during Lent and Advent when greenery is used, you may still sponsor flowers and it will be acknowledged in the Sunday bulletin). Sponsoring altar flowers is a beautiful way to honor loved ones marking special life events such as birthdays, wedding anniversaries, baptisms, confirmations, in memory of a loved one, or in thanksgiving for life's blessings. More than one person may make a gift on a particular Sunday. Names of those honored will be printed in the bulletin announcements and included in the weekly, online e-pistle for the week they are given.

    The cost for sponsoring altar flowers begins at $50 per individual/family. The altar flowers are currently arranged by members of the Guild of the Flowering Cross. Donations can be made online at our Giving Page on the website or by calling the parish office at 799.4767.

    Donations can be made online at our Giving Page or by calling the parish office at 799.4767.
