"Places of Passion" - Sundays during Lent

March 10th to April 14th, 2019 - 8:30am and 11am

PlacesThe scenes of Lent are familiar:  the upper room, Gethsemane, the halls of Pilate, Golgotha.  But when Jesus enters a place, He never leaves it as He found it, and this includes the troubling places in our lives.  During this series, as we revisit the Places of Passion, we see Jesus bringing His amazing grace, and we remember God's love for our fallen world.

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.

                                          2019 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 2019.  Missing a day or two, or even a week, does not mean failure - the idea is to keep reading, as time permits.
