May Council Project - Camp Phillip

Did you know that, as a member congregation of Camp Phillip, St. John's members receive a 10% discount on all camp programs? Camp Phillip provides year-round relaxation in creation and renewal in Christ to WELS youth, adults, families, churches and schools throughout the year and is partially supported by St. John’s and other member congregations. The staff is focused on sharing Jesus, Christian friendships are made, and participants have fun at a camp known for its action-filled activities, inspirational Bible studies, exciting evening games, and hilarious campfires and sing-alongs. There is no membership fee, but congregations are asked to provide members an opportunity to support Camp Phillip in some way. This month’s Council Project will provide support to Camp Phillip for this purpose. Please use your green Above & Beyond envelope and make checks payable to St. John's. Thank-you for sharing your blessings!

Pack'er Up Challenge

If you’re in the midst of Spring cleaning and are planning to make a trip to Goodwill, simply indicate our school name (St. John’s Lutheran School), city (Wauwatosa) and number of items donated on the slip provided to you by the Goodwill Donation Attendant, and the school with the greatest number of items donated will receive a visit from Donald Driver. It’s that easy! You will still get the slip for tax deduction purposes. Just be sure to count the number of items in your bag/box before you go. It won’t take any extra time. If you have items to donate and you are unable to make it to a Goodwill location, you may drop off your items at school by Friday, April 28th. A parent volunteer will make “drop-offs” at Goodwill, if needed. Be sure to have your items counted with your name attached so we can get the receipt to you for tax deduction purposes. For more information as well as periodic updates and official rules, click here. Thanks!
