Invites freely, loves unconditionally, and serves with joy!
Empowered by the unconditional love of Christ, St. John's Lutheran Church seeks to be a diverse and compassionate congregation that embodies God's love in Atlanta and in the world. All are welcome!
During Lent, we'll be using the Sunday School hour, as well as our time together in mid-week worship, to explore the history and meaning of Icons in our faith practice. Using conversation, observation, and creative expression, Dr. Laura Hollengreen and Ann Gerondelis will lead an adult class on Sunday mornings at 9:15 a.m., beginning March 9 and continuing through April 6. There will also be opportunities for children and youth. Each Wednesday night, we'll gather in the sanctuary at 7 p.m. for Lenten prayer services. Join us!
We Believe and Celebrate! This event, for elementary-aged youth, Kindergarten through 5th grade, will be held from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 22. Pastor Nancy, Pastor Beverly, and Travis will gather with the youth to talk about Holy Communion, to bake bread, to make clay chalices, and to eat pizza, too! For those who have already had First Communion instruction, this will be a refresher for them and a time to get together with their friends and church family! For those who have not had any instruction, this will be an opportunity to learn about the Sacrament in a fun, interactive way.
If you are interested in more information, or would like to sign your child up to participate, please contact Pastor Nancy.
The Hunger Walk: This Sunday, March 9th, St. John's will participate in the 30th Hunger Walk/Run. This event raises greatly needed funds and awareness for local non-profit hunger relief organizations.
