In This Month's
St. John Witness
Spiritual Growth
THE SEASON OF EPIPHANY shows us the wonders of God in Christ. He is true man, yet, He is also revealed as God and Lord. Worship reflects on this unique, holy, Savior, and His amazing gifts to humanity:
life, health, forgiveness, truth, love, and grace.

WORSHIP THIS MONTH will continue to be in the sanctuary, although we will have workers here replacing carpet and adding to the steps to the altar. Workdays will move pews and chairs, so that we may gather as God’s people, and receive God’s gifts. We should see those projects finished by February 17.

PRAYER is the voice of God’s people with God. Prayers helps us each day with trust, with joy, and with thanksgiving. Prayer Journals are available on the ushers table in Memorial Hall. Write out your prayers, and take note of God’s answers. He is faithful to answer. Psalm 65:2 “O you who hear prayer, to you shall all flesh come.”

EVENING WORSHIP will be Saturday, February 16th, at 6:05 pm. All are welcome to come and join God’s people, especially if Sunday must be a workday.

DOOR OFFERINGS: On Sunday, February 24th, we take up a door offering for the Lutheran Hour Ministries.

ADULT CONFIRMATION CLASSES began in January. If you know someone who is still interested, please have them call the church office. We meet Thursday evenings.

NATIONAL YOUTH GATHERING  Teens for Christ plans to attend the NYG in Minneapolis, MN July 9-15, 2019. They will serve in various ways to offset costs of this mission and ministry event. The congregation members are great supporters for our youth. Thank You!

WORSHIP DVDS are in the church office. People may borrow them to share with those who have not been able to be with us in church.

2020 VISION: IT’S STILL ABOUT JESUS! Anniversary preparations are being made. The Board of Elders is seeking volunteers in many areas. Several members have expressed desire to make this celebration memorable, and worthy of the gifts of God that we have received here at St. John Lutheran Church and School. Two events already planned are the inaugural celebration on Memorial Day weekend this year, and a Handbell workshop and concert in October, with bells joining us Reformation Sunday.
