Archive: 2018 Fall Bible Classes Begin September 9th

Adult Bible Class

Classes begin Sunday, September 9th. The focus of our study will be "Idols We Never Knew We Had." We all worship something or someone every day. In doing so, we make these objects our gods. Although many people think of idolatry as a primitive practice of ancient cultures or third-world tribes, it's as big an issue in today's Western world as it has ever been. In fact, one could argue that the idolatry we practice in the United States is more shameful and dangerous than bowing down to carved images because we don't even realize we are guilty of it. In this study we will identify many present-day idols and be equipped by God's Word to avoid falsely worshiping them.

Some of our lessons include: Success, Sports, Technology, and Family. Classes will be held on Sundays from 9:10-10:10 a.m., in the school cafeteria, and, Wednesdays from 10:10-11:00 a.m., in the Council Chambers, starting September 12th.

We plan to provide nursery care on Sunday mornings in the Childcare area at school for children too young for Sunday School (3 yrs.-6th grade). But, please call the church office (261-5959) to register your child for nursery care so you can attend Adult Bible Class. Coffee and donuts are also provided Sunday mornings. Plan to come and be enriched by studying God's Word together.

Sunday School

Classes for children ages 3 through 6th grade begin Sunday, September 9th from 9:10-10:10 a.m. in the lower level of church. Please register with the church office or Pastor Warnecke as soon as you can, if you have not already signed up. This is a great time for Christian education for both young and old here at St. John’s. There is no cost but there is a weekly offering received in these classes.

Archive: VBS - July 2018 - Shipwrecked

Join us for VBS 2018!

At Shipwrecked VBS, kids discover how Jesus rescues us through life's storms. Shipwrecked is filled with Incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Sciency-Fun Gizmos, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.) Plus, we'll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life - something we call God Sightings. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot!
Parents, grandparents, and friends are invited to join us at Sail Away Sendoff for each day at 9:00 a.m., a daily exploration of our Jesus' rescue! 
Mark these dates on your calendar: July 23-July 27. The fun starts at 9:00 a.m. and will end at 11:30 a.m. Our VBS coordinators this year are Amy Sellnow and Bethany Babinec. You can register your child here or call Ashley Wenninger at the church office at (920) 261-5959.
VBS is for potty-trained children of all abilities from age 3 all the way up to 6th grade. If your child is not potty-trained they are still welcome and invited to come along with an adult to assist them.

Registration costs are $10.00 per child/max $30.00 per family. Payments are due to the church office by Monday, July 16.

We are also looking for volunteers and donations to help make this a great VBS for the children. If you would like to volunteer, please click here to sign up. If you would like to make a donation, please click here to sign up.
