As a family united in faith by the Holy Spirit, we exist to worship and praise the Triune God, to be nurtured through His Word and Sacraments, and to share His love in Christ with others.
St. John's Lutheran School will begin its 2014-2015 school year with registration on August 18th from 2-8pm and an opening service on August 26th at 8:15am. The school year theme is “Harvest the Fruit of the Spirit”, which is based off Galatians 5:22-23 “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control”. Through God-given faith we rejoice in His promise of forgiveness of sins, eternal life, and salvation through Jesus Christ! Faith in Jesus is the motivation and source of these fruits of faith. We are excited to watch your children bear much fruit as their faith grows through the Word of God that will be respectfully, lovingly, faithfully, and truthfully shared with them every day this coming year!
It is summer vacation time at last! You can see the children rejoicing and jumping for joy – no more school for three months. At least this is the feeling of most children. Some parents may however be a bit more anxious than excited. They may fall into the grouping of parents described in that Staples office supply TV advertisement – the parent can’t wait for school to start, and, the kids to be back in school. God keep you strong and calm.
Summertime is also vacation time for some. This is great. There is time for the family to be together. But we must be careful that we do NOT fall into the temptation of taking a three-month vacation from worship. It’s easy to make excuses with all the weekend events -–weddings, vacations, family reunions, no school singing, ballgames, no Sunday School, summer jobs, family trips away, camping up north, sport camps, staying with grandparents and friends, and more. God wants to see us every week. God wants to hear our worship every week. It is so important that God gave us a special commandment.
On June 8, 2014 we will celebrate our Savior's love outdoors at Riverside Park.
The worship service will be at 10:00am. Prior to that there will be some refreshments.
After the service, everyone is encouraged to stay and enjoy a time to share in the food and fellowship of our congregation.
There will be games and activities for the children hosted by the teens and for the adults.
