Three Good Things That Will Happen in March

1. We will begin our celebration of Holy Week with Palm Sunday on March 28. This year's Holy Week will likely be even more special than usual for most of us because of the shutdown and lack of corporate worship in 2020. Watch for more information in the next couple of weeks on our Holy Week worship schedule.

2. We will canvass the area around St. John's and hang flyers inviting our neighbors to online or in-person Easter worship. Mark your calendars for Sunday, March 21, at 2:00 p.m., and see the blurb in this weekend's News & Notes for more information on how you can help. 

3. Planning will continue for our teen mission trips this summer. This year's trips will feature a couple of smaller groups split among congregations in Tennessee and the Carolinas. For planning purposes, teens planning to participate in mission trip should register by the end of March. Please keep these trips in your prayers as we strive to serve each church in whatever way is most beneficial!

Two Good Things That Happened in February

1. Our Long-Range Planning Committee (LRPC) reconvened after being on hiatus since summer of 2019. This committee is considering, evaluating, and prioritizing church and school facility needs to allow us to serve as many students as possible and continue to carry out our gospel ministry. Watch for more information on the LRPC's work in the next Lamplighter.

2. We increased our worship ca
pacity (from 85 people per service to 120), allowing us to accommodate more members and guests who wish to worship with us in-person. Thank you for your patience with blue and yellow pews as we settle in to this new configuration!

Worship Service Attendance Capacity Increase

As of Ash Wednesday, we have increased the attendance capacity for our worship services. In order to accommodate more worshipers but also continue to maintain a six-foot distance between different family units, we will also be re-configuring the seating pattern in our sanctuary. Click here for more information and details on where to sit.

Sunday Morning Bible Study

Beginning Sunday, February 21
Modern debates between advocates of atheistic evolution and divine creation are important for Christians to understand. But the relationship between science and religion is far broader and more interesting than just these particular modern debates. In this Bible study, we will explore some of the ways in which science and religion have interacted throughout history. In particular, we will consider questions such as these: Why was the church so interested in astronomy? What is the difference between astronomy and astrology, or between alchemy and chemistry? Did the Lutheran reformers teach science at Wittenberg? Must everything in nature have a cause? And, if everything has a cause, then what caused God? Please join us in-person or online for this study led by Dr. Kerry Kuehn of Wisconsin Lutheran College. Click here for class materials, and click here to register for in-person attendance.
