Three Good Things That Will Happen in July

1. We will celebrate confirmation. Our 8th graders have waited a little longer than usual, but they will come together as a class and confess their faith on Saturday, July 18, at 1:30 p.m. We are so thankful to be able to worship together again and celebrate this spiritual milestone in these young peoples' lives! 

2. We will celebrate Holy Communion on Sunday morning. As we continue to navigate our return to in-person worship, we look forward to offering Holy Communion after worship services on Saturday and Sunday, July 18 and 19. For those who are not yet comfortable or able to return to in-person worship, we will also continue to offer the Lord's Supper in devotional services on Wednesdays. Watch for more details and a registration link in the next week or two.

3. We will kick off a new online Sunday morning Bible study. Beginning on July 12, we welcome Rev. Phil Henselin of Institutional Ministries. Rev. Henselin will be presenting on moral injury and PTSD and looking at how spiritual guidance can assist with these very real issues. Click here for more information.

Two Good Things That Happened in June

1. We moved to a new worship and Bible study livestreaming service. Our current system was showing its age and experiencing a number of technical difficulties. Our new service offers a number of additional features, and we are so excited to continue to be able to offer a better online worship and Bible study experience! Make sure to update your bookmarks to point to www.sjtosa.org/video

2. We welcomed our two new teachers: Mr. Dan Markgraf (principal) and Miss Megan Bauer (4th grade). Mr. Markgraf and Miss Bauer will be officially installed in August, but they've both started attending worship at St. John's. If you see them in church, please introduce yourself and welcome them to our family of believers!
