Grand Old Days – Summer is fast approaching and that means that Grand Old Days will be here before you know it- Sunday, June 2. As part of their fundraising efforts, the youth of St. John’s sell parking spots in our parking lot that day after church. You may, of course, park in the church parking lot that morning without having to pay.
Donations of bottled water and ice would be greatly appreciated, contact Jean at email@example.com or 952-201-0424.

Sheltering Arms Episcopal Parish Grant – Thank you, thank you to Longkee Vang! Our dear Longkee wrote a very strategic grant letter to the Sheltering Arms Foundation in an effort to help offset the cost of Summer Stretch. We are very excited to announce that we have been given a grant from The Sheltering Arms Foundation for our Summer Stretch program this summer. With the gift of the grant we are able to lower our participation fee to $5 per youth per session.
