St. John will be holding a Holiday Bazaar on November 10th from 10:00-4:00 p.m. This event is a fundraiser for the church and your help is needed. There is a sign-up board in the entrance hallway. Stop and see where you can help. If you have any questions, you can contact the church office or Caitlyn Brinkman.




TRUNK-OR-TREAT is just around the corner. We are looking for people to decorate their cars and for donations of INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED CANDY. The candy can be put in the bin in the entrance hallway. Keep an eye out for the sign-up sheet for participating in the event. If you have any questions, please speak with Jennifer Knepper, Caitlyn Brinkman or call the church office.




The church office needs your scrap paper. The scrap paper needs to be blank on one side and white (if possible). If you have any questions please speak with Pastor Santiago or call the church office at 898-5656.




You are invited to sing with the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra and chorus for their Hometown Christmas Concerts on December 7th & 8th at 8:00 p.m. at the Schuster Center.
