REACHING OUT TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH – The Sunday morning Bible study will be discussing the message of the latest WELS evangelism video To the Ends of the Earth. Our hope is that this discussion will provide us with the direction and encouragement to invite our unchurched contacts to join us for worship on Christmas Eve. Come join us, won’t you?

HOSEA: A PORTRAIT OF GOD’S FAITHFUL LOVE – Starting October 18th the Thursday morning Bible study will focus on the first of the Minor Prophets – Hosea. Though Hosea points us to man’s deepest problems – sin, impenitence, unbelief, he captures God’s answer to our problems with unforgettable portraits of God’s faithful love in Christ. Come join us as we grow in God’s love together.

BIBLE INFORMATION CLASS – A Bible Information Class has begun between worship services in the meeting room on the main level of the church building. This class is for St. John members who would like a refresher course in Bible teachings and for guests who want to know more about what St. John teaches according to the Bible. For those who are interested, this course also prepares our guests for membership in our St. John church family. This course lasts about three months. Any missed classes are easily made up. Babysitting is available. Please notify one of the pastors if you plan to attend. Pastor Kruschel (507-430-4342). Pastor Sulzle (507-430-5343).
