Soles for Jesus September Shoe Drive

To us, they’re often-forgotten items in our closets. To the people of Africa, they’re gifts of hope.  Each pair of shoes donated to Soles for Jesus and sent to Africa is accompanied by the message of eternal hope in Jesus, the greatest gift of all!  This September, we will again be collecting new and gently used shoes (men's, women's and children's - all sizes). Watch for collection boxes in the church narthex and at school beginning September 1.

Three Good Things That Will Happen in July

1. We will hold several open forums to discuss our potential campus expansion. Check out the display boards this weekend in the church narthex, and then join us at an open forum for more details. Open forums will be held on Sunday, July 10, at 9:15 a.m. (also broadcast online) and Tuesday, July 12, at 6:30 p.m. 

2. Our teens will head out for their annual mission trip. This year's trip departs bright and early on Saturday, July 9, and takes us back to Living Promise Lutheran Church in Morristown, TN. Please keep our teens and chaperones in your prayers as they travel, help out with VBS, canvass, and have some fun along the way!

3. Our Board of Outreach will represent St. John's at the Tosa Farmers Market on Saturday, July 23. This is a great opportunity to connect with people who might otherwise never step foot in our church. If you're heading to the Farmers Market, stop by school to grab a free bottle of water and St. John's bag - and just to say hi!
