Summer Sermon Series

Beginning Sunday, June 19
When Jesus walked among us, the Bible consisted only of what today we know as the Old Testament. Of the 39 books that comprise it, the last 12 are perhaps the least known or understood for us as New Testament Christians. This summer, we will draw our sermons from the Bible Jesus read and consider what God continues to teach us through each of these little-known but important Minor Prophets.

Three Good Things That Will Happen in June

1. We will kick off our summer sermon series. Beginning June 19, we will focus on the last 12 books of the Old Testament. We'll draw our sermons from the Bible Jesus read and consider what God continues to teach us through each of these little-known but important Minor Prophets.

2. We will hold our annual Voters' Meeting to approve the 2022-2023 ministry plan (budget). At this meeting on Tuesday, June 7, we will also extend a call for an outreach and youth ministry pastor. All members of St. John's are encouraged to attend this important meeting.

3. We will finish out our fiscal year and wrap up our current ministry plan (budget). As mentioned in last week's mailing, our June Council Project of the Month is "Finishing Gratefully": an effort to replenish the Undesignated Memorials fund. Please prayerfully consider contributing; click here to donate.

Two Good Things That Happened in April

1. We kicked off a new Sunday morning Bible study. Through the end of June, Rev. Dr. John Lawrenz will be leading us in a look at the book of Daniel, and it's not too late to begin attending! Click here for class materials and video.

2. We celebrated our Savior's death and resurrection in our yearly Holy Week walk to the cross and the empty tomb. After the online-only services of 2020 and the capacity-restricted services of 2021, it was a wonderful blessing to gather together as a church family for Easter worship.

Confirmation Examination & Service

Thursday & Saturday,
April 21 & 23

Please join us as our 8th graders publicly profess their faith through the rite of Confirmation. Although confirmation comes at the end of two years of catechism classes, it should always be viewed as a beginning, not an ending – a beginning of participating in the Lord's Supper and becoming an adult member of the church. Examination of the confirmands will take place on Thursday at 6:45 p.m., and the confirmation worship service will be held on Saturday at 1:30 p.m.

Two Good Things That Happened in March

1. Our A boys basketball team competed in the Lutheran National Basketball Tournament in Indiana. Although a record of 3-2 wasn't quite the way we hoped the weekend would turn out, the boys still had an incredible experience coming together as a team around basketball and God's Word.

2. We began using one of the new musical settings of The Service in our weekend worship services. After introducing the new canticles (liturgy songs) in February, our March 5 & 6 worship services fully rolled out this new musical setting. Moving forward, watch for this new setting the first weekend of each month.
