QuestionsWhile Jesus was on earth, people asked Him lots of questions, and these questions usually stemmed from something deeper going on in that person’s life.  Jesus knows the hearts of men, and he never shied away from answering these questions.  Jesus also knows our hearts and our needs.  This series will look at four questions asked of Jesus from the Gospel of John.  These are also questions that may arise in our hearts.  Jesus’s answers provide comfort and promise of hope.

Marketing Presentation

Rose recently presented plans for the future use of the church's building and facilities, followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony.  The church facility, which had housed a school, includes classrooms, a gym, and outside sports fields.  These areas are now available for the community to use in conjunction with the policies and procedures established by the Marketing Team.  The church has also opened a Compassion Center, in partnership with the Lutheran Mission Society, which will assist those in need in the community.  For more info visit Church Building Usage.

                                          2019 Bible Reading Plan
St. John believes that Bible Reading is important, nourishes, and that God’s Word always has effect.  To encourage people to read their Bibles, LCMS has an online Bible Reading Plan for 2019.  Missing a day or two, or even a week, does not mean failure - the idea is to keep reading, as time permits.
