Advent wreath making

In the past few years, we have gathered in the Parish Hall and made advent wreaths together. Though we cannot be together in the Parish Hall, we can still make our wreaths “together” on Zoom on November 29th at 10:15 a.m!

We will send you the link when we know you will be joining us. I will put together kits with the oasis forms, candles, candleholders, and greens.

You will need heavy-duty cutters like wire cutters, clippers for flower arranging, or even wire strippers. I have a limited number of cutters to lend out; just let me know if you need them. Feel free to add other greens or decorations that you may have available to you.

Let me know how many kits you would like, and I will leave them outside the door by the office the week before our Zoom craft session. Consider taking two-one for your family and one to share. I will also include some basic instructions and even a Youtube Link or two if you can’t join us but would still like to make a wreath or two. Please join us! All are welcome and wanted. Contact Becky at education@st.johnsessex.org to let me know how many kits you would like.


zoom Christmas pageant

Hark! What is that, we see! Zoom School on Sunday, December 20th, at 10:15, we will be performing our annual Christmas pageant live and recording the Greatest Story Ever Told!

All are welcome to join us as we share and rejoice in the birth of Jesus once more! Scripts and costumes will begin distribution ahead of time so that when we all log on, we will be ready. We will also need our older children to help with narration!

Please let me know by November 15th if you would like to participate, and I can begin to distribute scripts ad costumes. Please reach out to my email at education@stjohnsessex.org!
