Quilting is the process of sewing of two or more layers of fabric together to make a thicker padded material, usually to create a quilt. Sounds pretty basic doesn’t it? However, quilts can be not only functional but also beautiful! Just ask the members of St. John’s Piece-Full Quilters.
This group meets each Wednesday morning beginning at 9. They create works of art for local missions, new babies and to be sold at the annual St. John’s Apple Fest.
Things you should know about the Piece-Full Quilters:
– You don’t have to be a member of St. John’s.
– You don’t have to be 55 or older.
– Your quilting skill can be anywhere on the scale, from “always wanted to quilt, but never tried” to “my quilts have been in quilt shows several times”?.
– You have to be willing to have FUN!
– Any and Every One is invited to join or just come by and check out the group.
– You may call Connie Mock (803) 439-2360 for more information.
And always remember: When life hands you scraps, make quilts!!
There are two children’s choirs at St. John’s. The Joy Choir is for children ages K3-1st grade. Under the direction of Elizabeth Barfoot, our smallest choristers enjoy their first experience of making music together with friends as they prepare and offer their very best to God.
Rehearsals are on Wednesdays in room 119 from 4:15 to 5:00 during the school year.
The Alleluia Choir is for children 2nd to 6th grade. Under the direction of Catherine Stapleton Nance, this choir focuses on good vocal tone, ear training, pitch awareness, self-assurance and self-discipline. The choir works hard to present our very best offerings for the worship services in which we sing. We dabble in drama from time to time. We play musical games help teach cooperation. We venture into another language on occasion.
Mostly, we have fun and praise the Lord in all we do.
Rehearsals are on Wednesdays from 4:15 to 5:15 in room 214.
A small group for guys. There is a lesson followed by games.
This group from St. John’s and the community meets at the church on the 2nd Monday of each month at 10:30 a.m. A program providing entertainment, enlightenment, and/or enjoyment is presented. Some examples of previous programs include the Mountain Dulcimers, the Readers Theater Group, English as a Second Language, Dave the Potter…
Following the program, a delicious, hot lunch including a scrumptious dessert is provided for the small cost of $4.00. Reservations are required for the lunch and may be made by calling the church at 803-648-6891.
This is a wonderful way to meet people and make new friends from both within the church and in the surrounding community.
SUNNY MONDAY WILL NOT MEET IN JUNE – the next meeting will be July 10
You DON’T have to be a church member to come and enjoy these programs and lunches!! They are a welcoming bunch.
Jesus said to them, “Come and have breakfast.” (John 21:12a) These high school girls do just that as they meet each Tuesday morning before school to talk and share. They meet at Atlantic Bread Company at 7:15 am.
