“This is the Day”

Today – Tuesday, September 15, 2020 – marks the 40th anniversary of Jamie Garvey’s ministry at St. John.  This is obviously a remarkable milestone, especially given the sustained high quality and creativity of the music program that St. John has enjoyed under her leadership.  Unfortunately, the constraints on gathering associated with the pandemic make a proper celebration essentially impossible for now.  Given this reality, St. John has decided to wait for that event when we can return to our sanctuary with a congregation present, and ideally with hymn singing and choirs.  In the meantime, let’s express our gratitude for the many blessings of these four decades.  In so doing, we will be joining our Bishop, who has sent a letter of appreciation on behalf of the North Georgia Conference.

And let’s also thank Jim Garvey, who has been a steadfast and indispensable source of support to Jamie for these many years.
