FW: E2 Conferences Begin This Weekend - Register Today for One Near You!

TO all St. John's folks, but especially leaders (officers, board and committee members).  These are very worthwhile conferences, and I am hoping we can get a couple folks from St. John's to go to the one in Wentzville on Sept. 24.  (I'll be at the men's retreat.) 
Please reply if you'd like to go!
