The St. Johns Tour de Noel is a wonderful way to take time to celebrate during the busy holiday season. This tour of stunning area homes, each lovingly decorated for the holidays, is a gracious way for us to involve the wider community in our outreach. All proceeds go to charity, so its an important part of St. Johns outreach efforts each year.
Tour de Noel Lunch ($12.00) Is a delicious holiday lunch at the church starting at 11:30. Have a relaxing meal either before or after the tour and don't miss the St. John's Boutique. This year we will have a terrific assortment of fresh greens, wreaths, and baked goods from our church members and friends.
(Lunch is generously donated by Paradise Foods, and prepared and served by Homeward Bound of Marins Fresh Starts Catering.)
