Welcome! I sure hope to see you and the girls more in worship in the weeks and months ahead. Have a peace filled day as you continue to care for your father in law and for Jeremy who I am sure is hurting right now too.

YESTERDAY'S QUIZ: When Jacob (Israel" pronounced his "blessings" upon is sons, what did he say about each of them?
Quiz: Reuben the firstborn is unstable as water. You shall not have preeminence. Simeon and Levi weapons of violence are their swords' In their anger they killed men, hamstrung oxen. Cursed be their anger. They will be scattered. Judah Your brothers will praise you. Your hands shall be on the neck of your enemies. Your father's sons shall bow down before you. Zebulun shall dwell at the shores of the sea, he shall be haven for ships and his borders shall be at Sidon. Issachar is a strong donkey crouching between the sheepfolds. He saw that a resting place was good, and that the land was pleasant so he bowed his shoulder to bear, and became a servant at forced labor. Dan shall judge his people as one of the tribes of Israel. He shall be a serpent in the way, a viper by the path that bites horses heels so that the rider falls backwards. Raiders shall raid Gad, but he shall raid at their heels. Asher's food shall be rich and he shall yield delicacies. Naphtali is a doe let loose that bears beautiful fawns. Joseph is a fruitful bough, a fruitful bough by a spring. His branches run over the wall. The archers bitterly attacked him, and harassed him severely yet his bow remained unmoved; his arms were made agile by the hands of the Mighty One of Jacob. Benjamin is a ravenous wolf in the morning devouring the prey and at evening dividing the spoils. Genisis 49:1-27
TODAY'S QUIZ: Who was Moses' wife?
MEN'S BREAKFAST THIS SATURDAY AT 8AM!
Biscuits and gravy
ANOTHER GOOD IDEA ABOUT SUNDAY SCHEDULE!!!!
10:45 and MONDAY WORSHIP IS LIKE BIBLE STUDY AND WORSHIP ALL ROLLED INTO ONE!!
Even if you went to the 9am service, you won't be disappointed if you stay for the 10:45 service. You can stay for the first part which includes a few songs, confession and absolution, and Bible readings/study; and then leave after the study/sermon time is done because you've already had communion.
NEW MEMBER LUNCHEON JANUARY 27, AT NOON!!
We want to welcome all of the new members we received in 2018, and help them to feel at home at St. John's. Please plan on attending the new member luncheon to do so, along with the new members, The RSVP sheet is on the counter in the narthex or you can call the church office to let us know you're coming.
SUMMARY OF LAST WEDNESDAY'S STRATEGIC PLANNING MEETING
- We talked about our Mission Statement and made a few minor adjustments to it. It is a work in progress.
- We talked about our strengths and weakness. Our main strength is that we are founded and centered on God's Word and Sacraments. That's what sets us apart and makes us different than most other churches.
- Then we made some goals. These are SMART goals meaning they are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely.
- A 5% increase in Bible study attendance by the end of the year.
- Add two more adult Bible studies on Sunday morning or during the week by the end of the year.
- 10% increase in worship attendance from 2018 to 2019.
- Two additional community outreach events.
These are some great goals to shoot for! The only way these things are going to happen and be done well is if the members of St. John's family get excited about their church family, get out and participate in them and do them.
All that being said, here are some steps to take to fulfill these goals as set forth:
- If anyone is willing to be a host, facilitator, or leader for a Bible study please contact me and we can talk about it. I will give you all the tools and support you need!
- Get to worship and invite people to come with you. It's as simple as that.
- If there is something you'd like to do in the community; whether it be outreach, evangelism, or fellowship please contact me to talk about it and, once again, I will give you all the tools, resources, and support you need.
