Happening at St. John's
Rally Day 2015!
God's tent is big enough for everyone!
Join us on September 13th at 9:15 a.m. when we kick off the Sunday school year. The youth will prepare breakfast, we'll share in some fun activities, and young and old will get a chance to meet our teachers. Worship will be at 10:30 a.m. as usual. Make plans to join us!
Back to School Learning Opportunities: Every Tuesday at 7 p.m., we offer Lectionary Bible Study at St. John's. Come learn about the texts for the coming Sunday to expand and enhance your worship experience, and to engage in interesting, enlivening conversation!
And on the second Tuesday of each month, we also gather for bible study at Evans Fine Foods Restaurant at 7:30 a.m. for breakfast and bible study. We are beginning a series on the book of Revelation this month.
Lutheran Confessions Class: What does it mean to be Lutheran? How did we really come to be called Lutheran? Was Martin Luther anti-Semitic? Just what is sin? What is adiophora? Learn the answer to these questions and many more as we study the Lutheran Confessions with Dr. Mark Ellingsen here at St. John's. Classes will be held on Mondays at 6:00pm from August 17th through December 7th. Even though class has begun, it isn't too late to attend! The audit fee is $100.00. Please contact Pastor Beverly with any questions.
Choir Resumes in September: Adult Choir (middle school and older) begins on Wednesday, September 9 at 7 p.m. in the choir room. Please let Jeanette know if you'd like to sit in and don't already have a folder reserved.
Come and see, come and sing!
