Trunk or Treat at Saint John’s Episcopal Church

Saint John’s Episcopal Church, Troy

Saint John’s is hosting its third annual Trunk or Treat on Sunday, October 30, from 2:00 – 4p.m. Come bring kids of all ages to receive “treats” as they visit the elaborately-decorated “trunks” of cars, trucks, and vans, parked in the parking lot of Saint John’s, directly across from the church. It promises to be a fun time for all, and a chance to enjoy the creativity of the trunks on display as well as the imagination of the children’s costumes.

Sunday in-person worship gathers at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. The 8 a.m. spoken service follows a more ancient Eucharistic Rite in Elizabethan English. The 10 a.m. modern Eucharistic Rite is preceded by hymns on the tower chime and is both live-streamed and in-person. Hymns are accompanied on the regal pipe organ, and Communion music is often from contemporary repertoire. And now the choir has begun to sing again! For more information about music at Saint John’s, be in touch with Tiffany Dzembo, Choir Director, at tdzembo@nullstjohnstroy.org. Coffee hour follows after the 10 a.m. service. Join us!

Sunday School has resumed! Children can draw near to God as they reflect on passages of Scripture and elements of liturgy in a hands-on curriculum, Sundays at 10 am, beginning October 2nd. For information about this or upcoming events, including Trunk or Treat and the Christmas Pageant, be in touch with Gaby Gastelum, Children’s Christian Education Director, at ggastelum@nullstjohnstroy.org.

We are currently having a big Christmas sale throughout the Thrift Store. Lots of Christmas decorations and great gifts, some brand new. Hours for shopping and dropping off are from 9 to 12 on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. Do stop by!

Cancer Support Group

BRUNSWICK – There are very few of us who have not been affected by cancer, either as a patient, family member, or friend. If you are dealing with the stress of this disease for whatever reason, talking with others in similar circumstances can be very beneficial. 

A warm invitation is extended to attend a Zoom cancer support group, led once a month (the third Monday) by retired pastor Ted Wright, he himself a cancer patient. If you have any questions or would like the zoom link, please contact Ted at twright@nullbrunswickchurch.org. 

This is a ministry in conjunction with Brunswick Church at 42 White Church Lane (just off Rt. 351). Our worship services are Sundays at 9:30 AM and all are welcome. Church participation is not required to have cancer support.
