Mark your calendars for our Holy Week Schedule

Lenten Prayer Partners

Remember to keep praying for your prayer partner throughout Lent,
then let them know who you are on Easter Sunday!

Lost and Found

A pair of sunglasses were left at the Oyster Roast last Saturday. If these belong to you please contact Sally to let us know or swing by the office to pick them up.

This cup has also gone missing. If you accidentally picked it up, please return it to the office so we can get it back to its rightful owner. Thank You.

Watch out for this Scam 

Please be aware of a potential email scam claiming to be Fr. Jeremy.
He is not now, and will never ask you for money, gift cards, e-cards, etc via email. Please be aware.
Any questions, please contact the office or Fr Jeremy directly.
Thank you.


If your committee, Bible study, or group would like to use Resurrection Hall for meetings (and we would like you to be able to), please be sure to call Sally Dixon before advertising your meeting.  We have many groups who meet regularly, during the daytime, evenings as well.  We want to be sure the time you prefer is open.  If not, we can discuss options.  Thank you.

St. John's Parish Church Building Fund

We have a restricted account for Building Fund.  Donations toward our future permanent space may be made directly to St. John’s Parish Church with “Building Fund” in the memo line.
Please remain in prayer for the Lord to reveal our permanent space on Johns Island. 

A Reminder:

Please make sure any checks given to the church are made out to "St. John's Parish Church". This will ensure that the funds are accepted by the bank and can be used for ministry.


The Mission Team who recently returned from Peru will be giving a mini-Report this Sunday at our 10AM Worship Service. Be sure not to miss it.

Easter Collection for 

Charleston County Youth Detention Center

We are collecting specific items for Easter gift bags to give to the Charleston County Youth Detention Center and are asking for your prayers for the youth to know Jesus.
