April 7 Congregational Meeting

Together in Christ


Congregational Meeting
This Sunday after Worship


This meeting, part of our quarterly Voter’s Meetings, is an opportunity for you to share your ideas for ministry at St John. 

As preparation for the meeting, think about these questions:

  • What are the present strengths of St John Lutheran?

  • What specific things need improvement at St John Lutheran?

  • What are some needs of the community around St John Lutheran?

We will have FOOD and will show a movie for children - so now there is no excuse not to attend!

We want to hear from YOU! 
See you Sunday!
