Mrs. Sherri Damman (preschool teacher) will retire at the end of this school year after 42 years of teaching service. Currently Sherri is teaching preschool at St. John's Lutheran School in Watertown. In 2003 Sherri was instrumental in starting the preschool program at St. John's and served as the first preschool teacher.  Sherri has been at St. John's for a total of 20 years and has mainly taught 3 and 4 year old preschool, along with two years of teaching kindergarten. Prior to coming to St. John's she was the director/preschool teacher at Mary Linsmeier school for 22 years.

Sherri graduated from Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin, with a B.S. in elementary education (K-8) and a minor in psychology  Upon her graduation from Carroll in 1975, Sherri received a call to teach Kindergarten at St. John's.  She taught Kindergarten for two years before marriage took her to Elkhorn, WI.

Sherri is a lifetime member of St. John's  (except for the two years in Elkhorn when she attended First Lutheran there)  She was baptized, confirmed, and married at St.John's.  She and her husband John have been married for 45 years.  They have two grown daughters and two granddaughters.  Sherri is looking forward to starting the next chapter of her life with a move to Oshkosh so she can be closer to her daughter's family and enjoy being a "near by" grandma.  She and John plan to do some biking, hiking, and traveling in their retirement.  

"God has truly blessed my time here at St. John's and while it is bittersweet to be leaving, I look forward to the plans that God has waiting for me.  It has been my pleasure to serve so many families over the years here at St. John's." - Sherri Damman

Archive: Eternal Life Through Christ - April Pastor's Message

The foremost truth of God’s Word is eternal life through Christ.

The above truth is connected fully to the Resurrection of Christ as Jesus said, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me will live, even if he dies. And whoever lives and believes in me will never perish.” (John 11:25-26) Have you ever really thought about Jesus’ statement and fully applied it to yourself and all who believe in the Savior Jesus. You live FOREVER! There is no end to your LIFE because it is ETERNAL. The friends in Christ that you have here, you will have for eternity. On this side we struggle with sin, but on the other side of bodily death that struggle will be gone. The fact that I have eternal life dictates my everyday Life in Christ. When I sin, I look to Jesus and find forgiveness. When I worry, I hear Jesus tell me He is with me now and forever. When I suffer, Jesus reminds me my sufferings are worked for my good by His gracious hand. Isn’t it wonderful to know and believe—HE IS RISEN!

As we eagerly wait for Easter, the celebration of ETERNAL LIFE through Christ’s suffering, death and resurrection, we continue with our Lenten preparation. As your pastors love it when God’s people worship, they have added another service (3:30 p.m.) to Maundy Thursday and arranged the schedule to hopefully accommodate everyone. All the way through Easter we will continue our theme, “Hands of the Passion”. The remaining services are:

Maundy Thursday: 3:30 and 7:00 p.m.
Good Friday: 12:00 noon or 6:00 p.m.
Easter Festival Service: 7:45 or 9:30 a.m. (No Communion)
