Caring for St. John's Well ...
As we lean into life together in the time of the Corona virus, the Leadership Team of St. John’s—the pastoral team, the church staff, and members of Church Council and Ministry Teams—are actively creating plans to care well for the people of St. John’s. Below you will find a combination ongoing programs and new expressions of worship, faith formation, service, and community care:
> Office Hours via phone will be from 9:00 AM to 12:00 noon. The church phone number is 865-523-3330.
> The pastors are on call, day and night, for spiritual care and personal emergencies. Their phone numbers are 402-302-5600 (Pastor Jean), 865-805-9805 (Pastor Amy), and 865-456-4567 (Pastor John).
> We will worship as a church family online on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings. A bulletin will be e-mailed, as well as posted on the website (www.sjlcknox.org) and Facebook (sjlcknox), with links and instructions for participation.
> A daily online devotion will be posted on the website and Facebook (fb/sjlcknox).
> One of the pastors will host daily noon day prayer via FACEBOOK LIVE. All can access by going to the St. John's Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/sjlcknox.
> We will continue by way of Zoom our Tuesday noon bible study which is currently exploring the book, Rediscover Jesus. We will send out log-in information each Tuesday morning.
> Pastor John will be posting an online Compline service which members can access via our website to conclude the day.
> The pastoral staff will make weekly phone calls to members, beginning the week of Sunday, March 15.
Finally, please diligently pray for us as we continue our ongoing ministries, as well as tend to the increased need for pastoral care during this time of crisis. We are grateful to serve among you!
