COVID-19 precautions will still apply. 

A time of Prayer – for the world, and for one another…

Each Monday evening  at 7 pm you would be welcome to join in a time for prayer for the needs of this world, which sometimes seem to be so many as to be overwhelming. This will be offered via zoom. Do know how welcome you will be.

Emergency Food Packages

If you or someone you know of from our St. John’s Congregational family are
in need during this difficult time of isolation and shut down please contact Rev.
Sharon (mrschalc@gmail.com), Pamela Doroh (stjohnscairo@gmail.com)
or Joyce Lee (sylee8869@yahoo.com). St. John’s is establishing a small
emergency foodbank, with packages for a limited number of people but which
can be given to those in need during this time. Do get in touch if you or another
is in need.

If you would like to support this outreach that would be a welcome
donation indeed. Please mark your offering as ‘Foodbank Offering’ and it

will go to that ministry. Thank you.

St. John the Baptist Parish Website www.stjohnschurchmaadi.org is in need of some love and attention. If that is something you might have experience with would you please speak with Rev. Sharon or Pamela? Thank you!

Remember, with all your hearts, the words we have to cling to:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it. John 1:1-
