Grounded in Prayer

Have you ever wondered about prayer? Please join Pastor Stacy in a time in intentional prayer for six weeks starting June 12th.

We will gather every Tuesday for six weeks at Barry Bagels on Milan Road at 9 AM.

We will pray, have conversation, and read "Grounded in Prayer" together.

Please let her know if you have additional questions, and please sign-up on the table in the back of the sanctuary if you are interested. Books are $12, and you can place a check in the offering plate with "grounded in prayer" in the memo line.

From what I’ve experienced, praying in a public setting is daunting and uncomfortable for most people, and to me as well. That’s why I took Pastor Stacy up on an invitation to get together with a few people and talk about prayer. We have been using the book “Grounded In Prayer” to guide us on this journey. I can’t say that I’ve instantly become more comfortable with praying aloud, but I can say my personal prayer life has changed. Soon an invitation will be made for others to take the same prayer journey. I encourage you to accept the invitation. ~ Allison Young

 


Living Well Even at the End

Join us on June 14th at 11 am as we explore the questions that arise when we consider the last stages of life.

We will read scripture and hear from guest speakers. An eldercare lawyer, Stein hospice, and Groff funeral home will share stories and information. Bring your questions, your fears, your hopes. This is meant for people at any stage in life.

A free lunch is shared. RSVP is encouraged but not required. Please email Pastor Stacy at stacylauer@gmail.com with questions or to RSVP.

 


Communion Instruction

Do you want to know more about the gift of Holy Communion? Is it time for a first Communion in your family? Communion instruction and information for all ages will be June 17th after worship. Breakfast will be provided

 


Small Group Gatherings

Every second Tuesday of the month you are invited to be a part of one of our small groups. We gather in June on the 12th for prayer, Scripture, fellowship, and food. Would you like to participate? Currently, there are two groups:

  1. One group is for people of any age and meets in various homes. Call the church office at 419-625-2192 for the location. At this gathering, appetizers are provided and you are invited to bring a dessert to share.
  2. The other group, for young families, meets at the parsonage where kid-friendly dinners are provided.

Please sign up on the welcome table.

 


Dinner Church

The June 27th Dinner Church
will meet at Nickel Plate Beach.

You are invited to the monthly fellowship of Dinner Church - a potluck dinner and prayer time that begins at 6 pm. in the basement of the church. At 7 p.m. we will have a short, conversational worship service. This is very kid friendly, and people of all ages enjoy it. Dinner church will meet each month on the fourth Wednesday. The June dinner is on the 27th.

 

For this Month

Scholarship Recipients With Pastor Stacy

May is Scholarship month: We’re raising funds for the St. John’s Scholarship Fund. The fund benefits all college, seminary students or anyone pursuing training or education beyond high school and is a member of St. John’s. We need your financial support to ensure that scholarships will continue to be available. Please give prayerful thought to help with this special ministry.

You can give by placing your donation in an envelope marked St. John’s Scholarship Fund and mailing it to the church or placing it in the Sunday morning offering plate. Scholarship Team: Sue Lucht and Linda Miller-Moore

Scholarship applications are now available on the Welcome Table. Please fill out and return to Sue Lucht, Linda Miller-Moore. The applications need to be returned by the last Sunday of May.



St. John's is hosting a book fair this May. We have books for kids of all ages in the Upper Room. This is not a fundraiser, but is a great way to share the good news of God's love with the young people in your life. Please look at the books, and fill out the order form if you are interested.
