                                       Begins April 8th, 2018

Self-Destruct.001In Deuteronomy 30:15, God says to the Israelites, “See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction.”  Over and over, Scripture speaks of two ways:  the way of life and the way of destruction.  Satan is good at making sin look enticing and joyous rather than deadly and ruinous.  Sadly and all too often, we walk down the way of destruction.  In this series, using the acronym DESTRUCT, we look at some of the sins that lead us to self-destruct.  And we look to the promises of the only One who can reconstruct what we destruct –  we look to Jesus Christ.  His death and resurrection conquered our sin and gives us freedom from sin’s DESTRUCTion.

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.
