When We See The Harvest By: Susan Nikitenko

A harvest of apples, a harvest of corn; A harvest of plenty, an autumn adorned. With bright colored leaves, a fall festive blend; A wonderful time for families and friends. A harvest of pumpkins, a harvest of grain; A harvest of bounty, and cool autumn rains. A big harvest moon-way up in the sky; A harvest of blessing that God has supplied. Be grateful, be humble, give thanks to the Lord; He has showered His blessing here in our world. But have we been faithful, and have we been true? Have we put God first in all that we do? A harvest that God sees is not food or crop; Not pumpkins, or grain, not apples that drop. But God sees the harvest of souls needing him; A harvest of people who need saved from their sin. A harvest of souls and a harvest of love; A harvest of mercy from our father above. When we see the harvest, let’s see through God’s eyes; And share with the nations the life He supplies.

Kids Busy Bags:

Remember kids to pick up your busy bags on the way into church. They are located at the door to the right as you walk into the Sanctuary. Please take these home with you when you are finished. We do not want them back. I do put a snack or two in the bag for the kids since we do not have donuts in the morning anymore. If you would like to donate a snack, please drop off in the church office Monday – Friday 9:00am to 1:00pm. Thank you so much!

St. John’s Children’s Ministry Page on Facebook: 

I will update on Wednesday Night Kids announcements or Sunday School announcements on this Facebook page and also on the remind app. If you would like to be added to my remind app., just text me your phone number at 567-674-1733 and I can add you.

Sunday School at St. John’s: 

Sunday School has started back in the classrooms! If you have a child K-5th grade, they are welcome to attend every Sunday from 9:00 to 10:00am. We have 7 kids attending right now. The children will be able to attend service with their family from 10:00 to 11:00am. Pk-1st grade will meet with Miss Hope in her room. She will take their temperature before entering the room. The child will put some hand sanitizer on before entering the classroom. The preschoolers will be learning a solid foundation in God’s word by learning the top Bible stories, including Old testament Bible heroes, Jesus’ miracles, Christ- mas story, Easter story, and much more! 2nd – 5th grade will also be learning some solid foundation in God’s word with Miss Natasha. They will meet at 9:00am in the Middle Classroom. If there are over 6 kids, they will meet in the chapel so the kids can safely social distance.

Wednesday Night Kids Program:

Our 1st night was on September 30, 2020 at 5:30pm. We are so excited to be starting this Wednesday night program! We have made the night shorter than normal. We are doing everything possible to stay safe and healthy. If you have a child K-5th that would like to join our program on Wednesday nights, please call me at 567-674-1733 or stop in the church office Monday – Friday from 9:00 to 1:00pm and pick up a kids packet to fill out. We do have a bus route, so we can pick up and drop off your child. The “New” Wednesday night will look a little like this: We bus in the kids. They eat dinner in the fellowship hall. They walk over to the Sanctuary and have a seat. They listen to a Bible story and stand up and participate in a few worship songs. This is lead by Kristi and Donovan Weaver. They then exit the church and head back home. Jane Donnelly drives the bus. Our bus rider helpers this year are LeVern Weaver, Mary Ralston, and Shane Harkenrider. We are looking for a 4th volunteer willing to ride the bus and take the temperatures of the kids before entering the bus. We might be sending home some take home crafts this year.
