 Parish Briefing
The Work of the People of God

Posted: Mon Oct 19
 
Good morning all,
This email is a reminder and a cancellation.  
 

Reminder for our ingathering for the nursing home this month. We will be collecting until Sunday, Oct. 25th.  There is a collection tub located right inside the handicap entrance at the church.  If unable to bring them to church, please bring them to our last park worship on Sunday, Oct. 25th.  Thank you for your continued generosity.  

Items needed for the nursing home: shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, lip balm, writing paper, markers, colored pencils, adult coloring books, pens, stamps, greeting cards, word search, easy crossword, find the difference, BINGO prizes (balloons, mini candy bars, lolly pops, sugar free cookies and snacks), word search, coloring page, devotion

Also, As part of God's Work, Our Hands October, we are trying to spread love everywhere we go. To  show that our homes are about love and not hate, we have yard signs available in the church. Please take one for yourself and one for a friend--let us know if you have trouble getting them or have any questions. If you take a sign, please also take the posts to put it in your yard. Signs are inside the glass door or stop around and there will be some outside in the yard for you to pick up.  Thanks to everyone who picked one up at park worship this week.

We are sorry to report that the Reformation Parade will not take place on Sunday, Oct. 25th.  The cancellation is due to circumstances at Admiral's Pt.

Good afternoon! 
 
There is so much happening at St. John's right now as we work to live out our mission statement "A Family of Disciples, Faithfully Making Christ Known."
 
In order to keep things semi-organized, there are many attachments here. 
 
A few highlights:
 
There are learning opportunities coming up in November. Please make a note of these and join us for book club, Bible Study, and Sunday School. Book Club will be reading "Just Mercy." The Bible Study has a brief video that can be viewed before we gather on Zoom. Details are attached. 
 
Worship remains at Strickfaden at 9 AM and Zoom at 10:30 for the rest of October. November has worship in the parking lot at St. John's at 9 AM and on Zoom at 10:30.  However, worship on November 8th will be in the sanctuary AND parking lot at 9 AM and on Zoom at 10:30. Registration is required for sanctuary worship. Details are attached. 
 
October continues God's Work, Our Hands. We also have "hate has no home here" yard signs available at the church as part of this. Please pick up a sign for yourself and your neighbor! 
 
I will be on vacation taking family time October 20-29th. If you have a pastoral emergency during that time, please call the church.  
 
The bulletins for this week and next week are attached. We WILL have Communion on Reformation Sunday, October 25th. 
 
If you have any questions, concerns, or prayer requests, please let me know!
 
Walking with you in Christ,
Pastor Stacy
 
 

Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,

It’s almost time to celebrate the Reformation! Over 500 years ago, a monk nailed his complaints, his 95 thesis, to a church door. And it started discussions, arguments, and a full blown Reformation.

He proclaimed that the Bible should be in a language that all could read. He exclaimed that we cannot earn our way into heaven—we are saved by the free gift of God’s grace. We are loved, as we are, and we are children of God.

This year, we are going to have a bit of a Reformation of our own. Only, hopefully this will be a peaceful one! We are going to ask God to reform the world through us, by using acts of love and mercy.

A calendar is included. Each day, there is a suggested activity to do to help bring healing, hope, restoration, and love to our community and world. If you can’t do the suggested activity on a certain day, you can always move it to the next one. But the goal is to remind us that small acts matter, and that as God freely loves us we are called to reach out in love to others.

As part of the work of reaching out in love, we will be collecting items for a local nursing home. We will also be having a parade to Admiral's Point on Reformation Sunday (October 25) to wave hi to Ruth Knupke as we drive past her home, and wave to Bev and Augie and their friends at Admiral’s Point. You are invited to make signs for your car or decorate with red streamers (the color of Reformation). More details about this will be available as the date gets closer.

Will you join us in working to reform our world in love?

Walking with you in Christ,
Pastor Stacy

God's Work, Our Hands, Activity Calendar

 


Sunday School will resume on November 1st at 10AM:  On the first Sunday of the month, there will be a video emailed that you get to do as a family.  The 2nd Sunday of the month is for catechism, and the 3rd will be a check-in for Sunday School of all ages.  Starting in November, get on Zoom a bit early if you want to question, talk, and pray with others in Sunday School. 

 
Reformation: For the month of October, we will be doing God's work with our hands. You will receive a calendar and details as October gets closer.  On October 25th, we will worship and later parade to Admiral's Point to wave at our sisters and brothers there.
 
In-Building worship: Your action team has met in the sanctuary to look at spacing and possibilities.  Information and a question for you have been forwarded to you.  Please help us know what your thoughts are!
 
If you have any questions, concerns, or prayer requests, please let me know! 
 
Walking with you in Christ,
Pastor Stacy
