Fellowship


In an age of virtual community and a time when most people are overextended, sharing in fellowship matters even more than before. The following opportunities for fellowship are fertile ground for you to know others and be known by them.
For more information on any of these opportunities, contact the Rev. Erin Hensley at 343-9341, x3032 or ehensley@stjohnsroanoke.org.

Celebration Arts plans and hosts four parish wide events: Welcoming Sunday, Advent Wreath Making, Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, and a spring event. Parishioners of all ages who attend all our various worship services come together to share food, fellowship, and fun.
 
Common Ground plans and hosts events escpecially for parishioners ages 21-49. Our most frequent event is Pub Quiz Night, which are trivia games played in teams and with small and fun prizes. Sometimes the activity might be an Urban Campfire, in our garden space, with s’mores and smiles for everyone. Being a young adult who is seeking to live faithfully can be hard, and Common Ground helps this particular group know they are not alone. People who are over 49 are always welcome. Dinner and childcare available.

Episcopal Church Women (ECW), Chapter 9: This group of women started an evening chapter years ago to serve the working women of St. John’s.  They meet monthly for a gourmet dinner, program, and business meeting, and lots of fellowship.  They pledge to the chapter, and consider together how best to use these resources.  They have joyfully sent funds to such groups as the Rescue Mission, Angels of Assisi, and Boys’ Home of Covington.
