A Prayer Tree has sprouted near the front of


St. Johns worship space. From now until
November, everyone is encouraged to take
a leaf from a sanctuary table, write your
prayer concerns or joys on it, and place your
prayer leaf in one of the clips on the
branches of the tree. This spiritual prayer
practice will serve as a visible reminder of
the prayers that we share as our
worshipping community at St. Johns.
