St. John’s celebrated welcoming 47 new members over the past year. 19 were present at the March 10th service where we heard their story, shared a gift,
special song, prayer and reception. THANK YOU to everyone who welcomed new members over the past year. THANK YOU Vestry for staying in touch with them.
THANK YOU Sue Boujoukos for greeting them in the Narthex, coffee hour and sanctuary Welcoming new members is important because People looking for a church home are on a spiritual journey.
- Joining a church affirms a deepening connection and coming home spiritually.
- Naples is “God’s waiting Room” with 10-15 St. John’s members going to be with our Lord each year.
- Reasons people give for joining St. John’s includes invitation by friends, Youth Sunday School, feeling home, message, worship and the presence of the Holy Spirit.
