Mr. Norman McGrattan (center) donated this painting, a rendition of St. John the Evangelist, our patron saint, at the 10 a.m. service on October 23rd. The painting was donated in honor of Fr. William Small and his late wife, Marty, in thanksgiving for the legacy of their ministry at St. John's Church. With Mr. McGrattan are Joan Western, Fr. Small's daughter, and Whitney Western, his granddaughter. The painting will be mounted in the Hawkins Room.
Got Questions about life and faith? Maybe you have no faith. Maybe you have lots of questions about God, religion and why you are here. Maybe you want to know why there is suffering in the world today. Come to Alpha and bring a friend. There are no wrong questions.
The evening starts at 6 pm at the church with a light dinner, and continues with the program afterwards. Come have dinner. Ask questions. Get answers.
