Starting May 30th at 7 pm will be a new Pastor’s class on the basics of the Christian faith from a Lutheran point of view. This class is taught by both of the pastors and will be every Thursday night during the summer. This class is open to everyone, but is especially helpful to those interested in becoming members or learning more about our church’s teaching.
We have been blessed with a great opportunity. St. John’s will be having a young student by the name of Alex Wright join us for the next year to complete his internship as a Director of Christian Education. Starting June 1st Alex will be arriving to work with us, but to also learn from our ministry staff and from the congregation on what it means to be a DCE. To prepare for his coming, we need your help. We are busy looking for an apartment to rent, and for some household furniture. If you have any insights on these items, call the church 665-7337 or email us email@example.com.
Beginning May 30th, and running until September 5th, St. John's will offer a summer midweek worship service. The services will be on Thursdays, and begin at 6:30 p.m. For more information, contact the church office or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
