Worship Service Attendance Capacity Increase

As of Ash Wednesday, we have increased the attendance capacity for our worship services. In order to accommodate more worshipers but also continue to maintain a six-foot distance between different family units, we will also be re-configuring the seating pattern in our sanctuary. Click here for more information and details on where to sit.

Three Good Things that Will Happen in February

1. We will once again walk with our Savior on his road to the cross and the empty tomb. Midweek Lent services begin on Wednesday, February 17, with an Ash Wednesday communion service. Lent services will be held at our traditional times of 3:30 & 6:45 p.m., with the 3:30 p.m. service broadcast online.

2. We will begin the process of updating and replacing the technology used to broadcast worship services and Bible studies. This equipment is over nine years old, is past its life span, and is no longer functioning reliably. Look for more information on this project in the Lamplighter (arriving later this month).

3. We will continue to spread the word about our new Early Learning Center through our Open House this Sunday from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. If you know someone looking for a preschool for next year, please encourage them to consider St. John's! Click here for all the details on the Open House and to register.

Three Good Things That Will Happen In December

1. We will hold our annual Advent by Candlelight program on Sunday, December 6, at 2:00 p.m. This year's program is entirely virtual and can be viewed at www.sjtosa.org/ABC. We hope to "see you there" virtually - and we hope you're able to share the link and invite a family member or friend.

2. We will celebrate the birth of our Savior. Because of gathering size restrictions, we anticipate needing more worship services than usual on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day this year. Please click here to take our brief survey (open through Sunday, December 6) which will help us gauge potential attendance and schedule enough services to accommodate all those who wish to attend. 

3. Our school children will once again share the Christmas story in word and song. Thisyear's children's service will be broadcast at 1:00 p.m. on December 23 (and archived for future viewing) at www.sjtosa.org/chapel. Thank you to everyone who made this virtual service possible!
