WE NEED YOUR HELP FOR MEALS ON WHEELS July is the month St. John's congregation volunteers to deliver meals on wheels to those unable to go out and get their own meals.

Our Adult and Bell Choir Director, Kirk Lundbeck, resigned from his positions this week. We thank God for the service of Kirk over the last 15 years. His many wonderful gifts and abilities have been a blessing to the worship of our Lord through St. John. Denny Vaupel, the choir accompanist, will also be moving on from St. John. We pray God’s blessings upon all of Kirk’s, and Denny’s, future endeavors. As a result, the Board of Elders will be putting together a job description and seeking candidates for the following positions: Adult Choir Director, Choir accompanist, and Bell Choir director. Also, Dylan Teut, a first grade teacher at Immanuel Lutheran School in Belvidere has accepted a call to Concordia University, Seward, Nebraska and will no longer be able to serve as our assistant organist. We will be looking for someone to play one Sunday a month and midweek services during Advent and Lent. If you know of anyone who might Yill any of the above positions please speak with any of the members of the Board of Elders or the pastors as soon as possible.
PRAISE TEAM NEEDS YOU We have a very small group of musicians and singers that has been leading worship at St. John on Saturday Nights, and we could really use some help. If you have any ability to sing or play, please prayerfully consider joining us. We would be happy to have you join us even for an occasional week - no large commitment is needed. We rehearse every Saturday at 5pm, before the 6pm service that we lead, and we do both hymns and contemporary pieces as part of the blended service. Please feel free to contact Jeff Ziech at 815-508-0112 if you are interested or have questions.
