SACRAMENT OF HOLY BAPTISM We celebrate the gift of God’s name to Claire Kolzow as she is brought into God's family through the Sacrament of Holy Baptism at the 9:15 am service. Her parents are David & Carole Kolzow. Her sponsors are Kalen & Tara Knull. We pray God's blessings upon Claire as she continues to grow in the Christian faith.
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. There is an east and a west route available. The sign-up sheets are in the Narthex. Please stop and sign up for dates you are available to deliver the meals.
Ladies Aid Summer Outing For this year's outing, Ladies Aid has chosen to go to the White Pines Dinner Theater for a lunch and matinee on Friday, July 24th. They will enjoy a fabulous home cooked buffet followed by the play "Wedding Bells are Ringing". In the play we will meet 5 society ladies in the late 40s/early 50s who practically rule the tiny Texas town of Plainview. Yeehaw! The cost of a ticket is $29 and reservations and checks must get to Lois Mesmer before June 20th. Seating for the lunch begins at 11:45 am. Ladies Aid members will arrange car pooling. If you need more information, call Lois Mesmer at 815-748-5692 or Marlene Turk at 815-895-9255.
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.
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 has begun. 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.
