St. John’s Worthington invites you to hear jazz vocalist Dwight Lenox

Sunday, September 28 at 3:00 p.m.

From blues to ballads and jazz to swing, Dwight Lenox shines. His impeccable instincts and mellow sound have garnered the attention of some of the finest musicians in the industry. Dwight's fluid style lends itself to a vast repertoire, from Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra to James Ingram, Stevie Wonder, Lou Rawls, and many more.  There is no charge for admission; a freewill offering will be taken to support the Music Series. St. John’s is located at 700 High Street in Worthington, on the southeast corner of the Olde Worthington Village Green (High Street at SR 161). Visit for more information.

Artrup, Steve Pogson, Sharon Whaley,   Deb McHugh,  Jon Nusbaum,  Marjorie Dotson, Hal Duryee, Michael McKinley, Bob Park and others whom we name silently or aloud.
We remember all who work for peace around the world, and especially this day we pray for our nation and other international partners discerning war and peace and wisdom in this time of terror and violence.
Remembering friends and family members related to this community, we pray for Petty Officer Kristy Sizemore, Cynthia Epler, Jordan Sellman, Matt Schumann, Commander Scott Whaley, Gunnery Sergeant Robert A Griffith Jr., and all who serve our country.
We continue to remember all suffering with the Ebola Virus in Liberia and the greater West African region. We pray for all Christians and persons of other faiths throughout the world who are persecuted on account of their faith and especially for those Christians at St. Mary Coptic Orthodox Church, in Masarra, Cairo.
We renew our commitments to serve the poorest in our midst and remember all who are homeless and hungry in our city today.  We give thanks for the generous hospitality offered this afternoon at In The Garden, and pray for the Holy Spirit’s abundant grace in our fellowship.
