One of the most frequent phrases people use when describing the St. John’s community is that we are fun-loving. As a community we love to get together in many different ways: Christmas Party, Tiger games, dinners at parishioners' homes, breakfasts after Sunday services, etc. Many are intergenerational. Fellowship naturally accompanies ministry activities and projects as we work together such as Gardens and Grounds Committee, the Maintenance Committee and the Altar Guild. We also have other strictly fellowship activities. Here are a few of the other ways we enjoy each other's company.
- Break Bread Together (BBT) - These are periodic small group dinners. Eight people, whether they are coupled or single, get together for good food and fellowship. In this intimate setting, it is easier to get to know each other.
- Breakfasts on Sunday - On the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the months from September to June a breakfast is served in the lower level of the church after the 10:15 service. This provides a great time for getting to know other parishioners.
- Coffee Hour - After the 10:15 service on Sundays when we are not serving breakfast, we gather in the West Transept to have coffee, tea, lemonade and goodies to catch up with each other. Each week different people and committees act as hosts and hostesses.
- Red Cup Society - The Red Cup Society sponsors social events for St. John's parishioners including pot luck dinners, trips to plays and other cultural events, picnics and related kid-friendly activities.
- Social Life Committee - The Social Life Committee puts on a range of social events during the year including Game Nights, trips to the Detroit Institute of Arts and other cultural spots, attending area plays, pot luck suppers, Tiger games, picnics amd related kid-friendly events.
