St Joe Team Leaders decided to require masks at all future worship services (8:30 & 10:30 AM) beginning tomorrow, out of an abundance of safety concerns. This is also in keeping with requirements in all public buildings in Indiana right now.

Join our new @stjoecom Text Alert Group!
St Joe is now using Remind to send text alerts for prayer praises/requests, special announcements, and other urgent news. Text @stjoecom to 81010 and you will receive quick reply saying you are signed up! Message and data rates may apply. We promise not to flood your phone with messages. Our goal is to keep you informed with the latest church family info.
Subscribing to this e-newsletter and @stjoecom text alerts are the best ways to receive timely news. Facebook and YouTube are also great ways connected with us online. As we announced last month, the St Joe Yahoo email group (our original alert system) will disappear by the end of the year.
I am grateful for all these new ways to connect electronically. However, they will never replace face-to-face or voice-to-voice! Spiritual growth requires in-person relationship support. Pray that we will continue to find safe and meaningful ways to gather in Christ's Name. "May the Lord of peace himself give you peace always in every way." 1 Thessalonians 3:16
St Joe has been given a semi-truck load of Food Boxes from the Farmers To Families USDA program, to distribute to area families! We receive the food next Tuesday, Oct 27th at 10 AM and plan to begin distributing these prepackaged food boxes at 1 PM.
We are asking for anyone who can volunteer to help in the following way:
Volunteers need to wear masks and gloves. Safety vests will be available but bring your own if you have one. Bring a rain jacket in case of bad weather.
Thanks in advance for showing God's love to our community in a practical way!
St Joe will hold its annual Trunk or Treat Saturday, October 31, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Listening to state and local guidelines on social distancing, we’ll hold the event in the parking lot (weather permitting) with one parking space in between each trunk and all volunteers wearing masks and gloves. We’re are still open to trunk submissions which must be church appropriate (not ghoulish or witchcraft-y). We also appreciate any candy donations!
Contact Bray Snyder (812-327-5678) or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
A Memorial Service for Kim Eubank will be held on Sunday, October 11 at 5 PM, at St Joe Community Church, located at 2900 N Anthony Blvd, Fort Wayne.

St Joe has canceled VBS 2020. Thank you for your interest; we pray that God will allow us to resume this outreach to children in 2021.
