Preparing For Inheritance

The Wednesday Night live program on April 26 will feature John Rivas, Executive Director of the New Mexico Activities for the Texas Methodist Foundation. Have you ever know families torn apart by inheritance issues? John will discuss the family dynamics of inheritance and how preparing valuables for heirs is a different process from preparing heirs for valuables! John will show us how careful planning and education can make inheritances a positive experience.

John will also discuss St. John’s own Foundation and the many competitive investment opportunities available to both earn money now and leave a legacy. John will show how an investment or gift to the Foundation will keep on giving for generations.

Prayer Garden, Columbarium, and Niches – oh my!

Join Ben Curet, Carolyn Good, and Marlene Bryan in a discussion during WNL on May 3rd at 6:00 PM in Rooms 149/151 on the proposed transformation of the courtyard between the sanctuary and offices into a Prayer Garden and a “Rest Where You Worshipped” Columbarium (a group of niches each of which holds cremains). The discussions will cover what, where, why, when, and how. Bring your questions.

Intergenerational Class – Screwtape Letters Return

A new Semester and a new round of letters as we continue our Intergenerational Class on C.S. Lewis’ great fiction, The Screwtape Letters, weekly in Room 258 from 6:00 PM—7:00 PM.

Listen as John Cleese, of Monty Python, narrates each correspondence between two demons about how to tempt and manipulate people of faith to turn them into a candidate for Hell. We will then discuss and debate the merit and application of each idea; bring your Bibles.

Kids’ Bible Club

Join us every Wednesday through May 3 to learn about how to be a superhero! The Bible tells us what characteristics we need to be super: helpfulness, creativeness, self-control, and more! We’ll meet in Room 240 at 6:00 PM for games, and then split into age-level classes for a lesson, songs, and hands-on activities! For ages 3 through 5th grade. If you’re singing with NewSound – no problem! Join us at 6:15 PM.

NewSound Children’s Choirs

You can register online, or use one of the brochures found throughout the church. NewSound is for children ages 4 through 5th grade. (We have a family music program for younger children and their caregivers, too.) NewSound participants engage in both choral and instrumental music, as well as learning about the Christian faith. All choirs meet Wednesday afternoons 5:30 PM – 6:15 PM. For more information, contact Pauleta Hendrickson at newsound@stjohns-abq.org or 883-9717, ext. 137, or visit our website at NewSoundChoirs.org.

NewSound Family Music

Our NewSound Family Music is back with more offerings for children and their families. NewSound Family Music is for children 3 months through age 4 and adult caregivers. These classes allow adults and children to participate in music through singing, chanting, moving, dancing, listening, and playing simple instruments. Children and adults who participate in musical activities develop a lifelong musical bond. We have several options during this session:

During Wednesday Night Live, beginning January 18th, 5:45 PM – 6:15 PM
*Kid & Big Kid combo class for 2-4 years

On Tuesday mornings, beginning January 17th
*Baby class for 3 months-walkers
*Toddler class for 1-2 years
*Kid class for 2-3 years

Classes will be small, with a maximum of 10 child/adult partners. Each child must be accompanied by an adult. Registration forms are available throughout the church, or register online at NewSoundChoirs.org.
