June 25 Looking forward – then and now. The early Christians faced a number of issues as they discovered they needed to move into the future without Jesus’ physical presence. Creating a “church” was the result, not the goal. We’ll talk about the issues the early Christians faced, and whether their answers can help us address the issues we face as a church in a changing world.

July 2 S/he said what? A monthly first-Wednesday open forum to discuss ideas from recent or past sermons that you found intriguing, irritating, inspiring, provocative, puzzling, peculiar . . . anything that made you want to talk back to the preacher.


The Farmer’s Market will be in the St. John’s parking lot starting this Friday, June 20th from 8:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m.


St. Saviour:
