3- Curate's Cake at Coffee Hour!

6- All week God gives you bread but you have to make the toast! But at the Eucharist all you have to do is recieve!  It's the mst nutritious "Dinner Out" for your soul and no cooking and no dishes!

7- The kids are upstairs the whole service.  Relax with God.  Ahhhhhh......peace!

8- Sing at the top of your lungs and clear up to heaven!  Chris Brayne, our new Music Director and Organist is fantastic!

10- Leave church knowing you are loved amd beautiful and a perfect child of God.  You are a mirror of HIS love! Go out there and be this mirror to others! You don't have to be clever or wait for the right time.  You can be shopping or dropping kis off at shcool and you are that mirror!  People will walk away not knowing exactly what happened but they feel wonderful instead of woeful after being with you!

News!

  1. Sunday School will now go the full hour and we will all meet up at coffee hour.  Where else on the planet do the parents and kids want to stay in Sunday School longer? We are truly blessed with the BEST families in the world! We love you and we hear you! Children will have opportunities to attend services as acolytes, eventual participation in children's choir (TBD by our Music Director, Chris Brayne)  and at Children's Church. *If you wish you children to be present for the Eucharist, you may come up and collect them.
  2. New Sunday School Office! Update! The curtains will go up next week along with a huge photo board that will narrate in real time the LIFE! of the Sunday School and the Parish! Another board across the room will have all the latest Parish information, events and special notices of new amazing things!
  3. A Listening and Sharing Night Series: Opioids, Family Life & Navigating this EpidemicThe St. John's  of Lattingtown Children's Ministry and Outreach are jointly hosting a series of 4 listening and sharing nights in June focusing on the Opioid Epidemic that has hit Long Island hard. This is not a 12 Step program but a gathering for parents and neighbors wanting to learn about the epidemic or share their experiences in a loving faith community setting. Through compassion and a commitment to erasing the stigma attached to this addiction, we will develop understanding of this epidemic, identify tools and resources as we navigate together. It is our hope this series will become an ongoing group. It has been a wake up call to me how many in our community have been affected and Bishop Provenzanno has urged all churches in our diocese to host or attend these gatherings for good.
  4. Parish Hall: Monday Nights; June 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th @ 7PM
  5. Nursery! The nursery is now in the basement of Little Learners and it is wonderful! Little Learners had made the basement happy, fun and beautiful for their kids and have been so kind to share with us on Sundays!  There is a full play kitchen and so many toys and lots of space! There will also be air conditioning hopefully in July! And of course Miss Ruth, Miss Melissa and Emma are a blessing to all the children and are there to keep things safe and happy! So brave the basement because it's a spirited space!
