A Few Things
A few dates to put in your calendars:
This week at EYC, October 28, we will be doing Trunk or Treat. We ask that as many of you as possible participate so that the younger members of the St. John's Community are able to have a fun event to attend. If you have a car, please bring it and decorate your trunk. If you do not have a car, or cannot drive, that's ok as well. We have cars that you can decorate! Those of you that wish to decorate we ask that you meet in the St. John's parking lot at 3 pm. The event will begin at 4pm and conclude at 6 pm. Afterwards, we will be going to the Richland Mall, to take a trip along the Dark Knight Terror Trail. For more information please go to https://www.facebook.com/TheDarkKnightsTerrorTrail. Their personal website seems to not be working. Please, bring friends. Afterwards, we will be eating at D's Wings by the Richland Mall. We need chaperones for this event. The ministry of a chaperone is very important to St. John's EYC.
November 4, Gordon Schell will be joining us at EYC to add music to our fun and praise. I am so thankful for his ability to join us.
November 11, from 2pm to 6 pm we will be going to Ballbusters paintball and be participating in an EYC paintball event. Friends are encouraged to come.
November 30 and December 1, coinciding for those who are not going to Happening, will be a class on icon painting with Mother Kelly Ayer. Originally, from Irmo, SC, now of Avon, NY. More information will be given soon. Friends are welcome to come and learn and paint as well.
December 8, from 9 am to 1 pm is our Harvest Hope event. Afterwards, we are working on a trip to Great Wolf Lodge indoor water park. As always, friends are welcome.
For those of you who wish to volunteer, or wish to continue to volunteer there is Safe Church Training - Saturday, November 3, from 8:45 - Noon at St. Martin's in the Fields, 520 Clemson Ave. Columbia, SC 2206.
