Are you already filling your calendar with holiday gatherings, creating lists of tasks and commitments to stay ahead of the madness and wondering why the Christmas carols are already streaming from speakers and radio stations? I have an invitation for you that I hope will make it to the top of your list, and there may very well be sprinkled cookies involved!
It was just last year in September when I joined the staff at St. John’s as the Administrative Assistant for Worship & Music, providing administrative support and assistance with various worship related activities.
Recently, it was determined by Steven Johnson, Ryan Eikenbary and Pastor Frank Espegren that the existing worship and music department at St. John’s had greater needs for programmatic support. Now, over a year later, my position has changed to Worship & Music Program Coordinator.
Traditionally held on the first Sunday in Advent, the Advent Festival is a great way to kick off the season with seasonal art projects for the whole family. As part of our annual Advent Festival, we ask individuals and families to bring batches of their favorite homemade cookies to share in Goethe Hall on November 29th between the 9:00 am and 11:30 am services for the annual Bernice Jurach Cookie Share. Volunteers are needed to plan activities, set up, help younger children with projects, and to clean up.
