Three Good Things That Will Happen in June

1. We will begin our summer sermon series this coming weekend, June 6 & 7. Although the Apostles’ Creed wasn’t written by the apostles, it accurately reflects their teachings and succinctly summarizes the Christian faith. This year, our summer sermon series will focus on the themes of who God is, what he did, and what he does as viewed through the lens of the Apostles’ Creed. 

2. We will once again offer Holy Communion. During the month of June, communion will be celebrated in smaller gatherings separate from our weekend worship services. The first of these devotional services will be held next Wednesday, June 10. Click here for more information, and watch for an e-mail tomorrow with a registration link.

3. We will say farewell to our principal, Mr. Scott Uecker, and to our 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Megan Petersen. Details for a celebration are still being worked out (a lunch was originally scheduled for May), and more information will be available soon. Well done, good and faithful servants!

Two Good Things That Happened in May

1. We celebrated 8th grade graduation in a socially-distanced parking-lot ceremony. No one expected the school year to end the way it did, and we all would have preferred a traditional graduation ceremony in church. But we are thankful that we were able to gather and give our 8th graders a proper send-off as they embark on their high school careers!

2. We came together again as a family of believers after two months of exclusively online worship. What a beautiful sight it was to see familiar faces and hear congregational hymns being sung! For those who are not able or not ready to worship with us in person, we will continue to broadcast our services online as usual (live at 8:00 a.m. on Sunday or archived to watch anytime).

One Good Thing That You Might Not Know About

We have a "Rooted & Mowing" team that works tirelessly behind the scenes to maintain our beautiful church and school campus.

Please see the announcement in the News & Notes this weekend, and click here to e-mail Kurt & Kelly Kramer if you are able to help.

Resuming In-Person Worship

Beginning May 30 & 31
We are thankful to be able to gather once again as a family of believers in our house of worship beginning this weekend, May 30 & 31. In one sense, this represents a return to normalcy that many of us have been eagerly awaiting. However, as we are all well aware, our nation is still contending with the coronavirus outbreak. Therefore, in another sense, a full return to normalcy in worship is not possible at this time. In particular, advance registration will be required for worship services for the time being. Please click here for more information and details, and click here to register for May 30 & 31 worship.

Sunday Morning Bible Study: Masks of God

Beginning Sunday, May 31
The doctrine of vocation uniquely answers the ancient question “What is the good life?” God frees the Christian from the burden of self-justification through Christ’s redeeming work. He then puts on Christians as if they were masks in order to love the world. The ordinariness of life is made extraordinary, even divine. God frees the Christian and then uses the Christian. Dr. Berg explores the notions of the good life, shalom, flourishing, and happiness to show that in vocation the Christian finds his highest calling, the truly good, flourishing, and happy life. Click here for class materials and video. Please note this is an online-only Bible study.

Volunteers Needed

As we resume in-person worship, we need volunteers to serve in a variety of areas: ushers, greeters, AV operators, and facility sanitizing crew members. All of these positions will only take an hour (or less) on Saturday night or Sunday morning, and none require shaking hands or being in close proximity with other worshipers. If you are willing and able to serve, or if you would like more information, please click here to contact the church office.

Resuming In-Person Worship

Beginning May 30 & 31
As restrictions on in-person gatherings continue to expire, the St. John's pastors and church leadership have thoughtfully and prayerfully been looking at various scenarios for returning to in-person worship. Since the current restrictions from Wauwatosa will expire tonight and no further city-wide order will be issued at this time, we will resume our regular schedule of in-person worship services the weekend of May 30 & 31. Please click here for more information and details.
