Three Good Things That Will Happen in September

1. We will hold a congregational meeting on Tuesday, September 6. This meeting has two main purposes: 1) to share the results of this summer's capital campaign feasibility study and 2) to extend a call for a pastor of youth and outreach. All congregation members are invited to join us at 6:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall or virtually at www.sjtosa.org/video for the open forum portion of the meeting. 

2. We will hold our annual Unity Sunday worship service. This year, we're thankful to return to our traditional Unity Sunday format of a single worship service in our school gym. Please plan to join us on Sunday, September 11, at 9:00 a.m., and click here for more information from our Board of Elders.


3. We will take a new step into the digital world and kick off a sermon podcast. Our pastors preach beautiful law-and-gospel sermons every week, and we want to share them with you! Beginning with Unity Sunday, we'll be distributing each week's sermon as a podcast on Tuesday morning. Watch for more information and a link coming soon.
