Children of all ages are welcome and encouraged at this service which features a unique opportunity to see The Saint John’s Bible up close as well as scripture and music that emphasize the importance of learning! Led by the choristers of the choir school (ages 8-18), this brief evening service will highlight the leadership of the youngest ones in our faith community. Stay for fellowship and a dinner of Macaroni & Cheese, BBQ chicken and broccoli!
At 5:30 PM, join our guest speaker, Tim Ternes in the Compass Rose to learn more about the beautiful illuminations in The Saint John’s Bible. As it will be the feast day for Anna Julia Haywood Cooper, a writer, teacher, and activist who championed education for African Americans and women, we’re going to focus on the love of learning and how that leads us all to wisdom!
Then at 5:45 PM, we’ll begin Choral Evensong, celebrating music, scripture, and the love God has for all his creation.
We’ll finish in Alfriend Hall with delicious food and fellowship. All are welcome!

Tim Ternes Bio:
Tim Ternes is the Director of The Saint John’s Bible at the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library at Saint John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota. As Director, Tim worked closely with the artistic team in the creation of the original Bible folios and facilitated planning and communication between artists and commissioner. This collaboration has given him extensive behind-the-scenes knowledge and great stories about all aspects of The Saint John’s Bible project.
In addition to caring for the original folios of the Bible, Tim manages an international touring exhibition program and on-campus gallery programs for the Bible and museum rare book and art collections. He travels extensively throughout the country and internationally offering presentations and educational programs for The Saint John’s Bible and library collections. In short, Tim is the keeper of the pages and the keeper of the story.
Prior to working with The Saint John’s Bible, Tim worked as an elementary classroom teacher for sixteen years and as an independent language arts consultant to school districts around the country and internationally. Visit The Saint John’s Bible website for more info.
