St. John News and Notes:

This summer the church office will be closed on Fridays. Starting on May 27th through September 2nd. If you need to reach the office call and you you'll be prompted to a staff member.

Council News:

Janie Wegleitner has submitted her resignation to Council. We thank 

Janie for her service to this church as the Education representative. This leaves a big hole. Not only will she missed on council, but her leadership in coordination Sunday school, confirmation and VBS. We desperately need volunteers in all these areas. It's not hyperbole, but it is possible, without leadership, VBS could be canceled this summer.

Please consider volunteering. Contact the church office for more information. 

May 28th Wild West Days.

VBS: July 31st through August 5th. 5:00 to 8:00

Fall Festival September 10th

If you know anyone who have the necessary skills needed please inform Pastor Tim, Jessica Larson, Carolyn Schwab, or the church office. For the job description check out the link below labeled Worship coordinator.

Colossians 3:15-17

15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
