Please know that you are in my Prayers and in my thoughts. This is a serious situation and should not be taken lightly, however we should not allow fear and panic to take over. The words of Jesus ring out: Come to me all who are weary and carrying heavy burdens. Jesus is walking with us and we are walking with Jesus.

During this time of in-person worship being cancelled, we will be making contact by email and online with Worship on Facebook live and meetings on Zoom. We are using these tools provided by the Synod to keep us connected. As we move through these uncharted territories, the expenses of the church continue. Please use the online credit card button above, or mail your contribution to St. John. Your support is needed--thank you for your continuing generosity.
Thank you to all our St. John volunteers at the Food Pantry this past week--your help in making sure those in need have food was greatly appreciated.
Wednesday Noon Lenten Services and Evening Soup Suppers/Services are on hold for the time being.
Indoor Farms has cancelled orders for Easter lilies this year. Donations in any amount may be made to St. John for ELCA Good Gifts, and we will purchase farm animals through them with the money we receive.
Whenever we are given the go-ahead to resume Sunday Worship services, we will have one Worship service at 10:00AM. At that time, I will need volunteers for several duties: Assistant Minister, Lector, Acolyte, Ushers, Offering Counters, and Reception. Please email the office if you are willing to serve in any of these capacities.
