Lent2018Christians have the best news in the world to share! But are we prepared to share it?  Imagine that a friend or family member who is unfamiliar with your Christian faith asks you to summarize the Gospel.  What would you say? Are you prepared to confess your faith in Jesus? To be a Christian is to “believe with your heart” and “confess with your mouth” the good news of God’s love for us in Christ (Romans 10:9-10)  This series will help you craft your own confession of the gospel. Listen online.

                                     “Thy Will Be Done”
             Mid-Week Lenten Series - Wednesdays at 7pm
               Begins  Ash Wednesday, February 14th, 2018
lent2018Jesus prayed to His Father the night before He went to the cross for our salvation, “Not as I will, but as you will.”  And that is our prayer as well this Lenten season as we seek to do God’s will in our lives, and draw near to the observance of Christ’s suffering, death, and resurrection during Holy Week. Each Wednesday we will focus on a different aspect of God’s will at work among us.  Lenten Soup Suppers begin Ash Wednesday and continue during the Lenten season at 6pm each Wednesday before the 7pm service.

Marketing Presentation

Ribbon cuttingThe Marketing Team at St. John Lutheran Church on Mt. Rose recently presented plans for the future use of the church's building and facilities, followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony.  The church facility, which had housed a school, includes classrooms, a gym, and outside sports fields.  These areas are now available for the community to use in conjunction with the policies and procedures established by the Marketing Team.  The church has also opened a Compassion Center, in partnership with the Lutheran Mission Society, which will assist those in need in the community.  For more info visit Church Building Usage.



                                          2018 Bible Reading Plan
St. John believes that Bible Reading is important, nourishes, and that God’s Word always has effect.  To encourage people to read their Bibles, LCMS has an online Bible Reading Plan for 2018.  Missing a day or two, or even a week, does not mean failure - the idea is to keep reading, as time permits.
