From the Board of Fellowship... We want to thank all the members of St. John for being a part of (Together Sunday, April 26th). Melody and I would also like to thank everyone for their participation with the pot luck lunch. We appreciated all the help we received from the congregation. Whether it’s making phone calls, bringing a dish to pass, helping with set-up and take down of the multipurpose room or working in the kitchen cleaning up and putting things away. We truly learned a lot from all of you and enjoyed working with everybody. Again, thank you for supporting the Evangelical Lutheran Church of St. John and the Board of Fellowship.
God’s Blessings, John and Melody Holtz
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL Be part of CAMP DISCOVERY VBS being held July 20-24. God's children of all ages will discover that Jesus is at work through us at Camp Discovery VBS. And, every child will hear the Good News that Jesus, their Savior, gives us courage, gives us His wisdom, saves us, gives us faith, and gives us His love to share through His work in us. At CAMP DISCOVERY VBS, as staff you can live out the theme "Jesus is at work through us" as you share the message and the fun with kids!
If you can help full time or part time, we have many ways to be involved. Volunteer staff sign-up begins TODAY. Check out the VBS table in the narthex. Join us to see how Jesus is at work through us! Questions? Call Patti 1-815-756-6077.
Gideons International The Lord has richly blessed the ministry efforts of this Association as we have just shared the Two Billionth Scripture since we began Bible placements in 1908. Praise the Lord! Thank you for your prayers and support. We know that behind every number is a face, behind every face a story, and behind every story a priceless soul. This is a wonderful message to share with all our churches and friends. To celebrate what God has accomplished, our international members will present a Two Billionth Commemorative Bible to as many of the leaders as possible in the 200 countries, territories, and possessions in which we are organized. It is interesting to note, the distribution of the first one billion Bibles and New Testaments spanned 93 years (1908 to 2001). This second billion was attained in less than 14 years (2002 to 2015). Once again, we deeply appreciate all you have done for The Gideons International in service to our Lord. We ask that you continue to pray for opportunities to reach more souls than ever before with God’s life-changing Word.
