In these unusual times, when we do not have the usual ways of staying connected with one another, St John’s is launching a community building effort called, “Building Belonging.” Over a period of about 6 weeks, pastors, staff, and volunteers will be reaching out to as many community members of St. John’s as possible.
The goals are:
1) to strengthen ties among St. John's members and
2) to gather input and ideas from members regarding future directions for St. John’s. We will share the themes that come out of these conversations with the congregation around Pentecost Sunday.
The outreach team will support the effort with call lists, easy-to-use forms for sharing themes, and weekly check-ins. If you like talking to strangers in grocery store lines, or encouraging people on the phone, then please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Rebekah Turnbaugh at 916-352-7630 to volunteer to serve on this short-term team.
