Altar Flowers for February 24th are sponsored by Alice Fae Detert in memory of Wally.










St. John was blessed with approximately $130,000 from Julie Peiser’s estate. As per our tradition at St. John as faithful stewards of all that God gives us, the church council has designated 10% of the total as a tithe for outreach. This leaves approximately $119,000 to be used for other purposes.




The church council wants every member to have a chance to offer suggestions on how the money might be used. There will be a form available in the Sunday bulletin for you to give your suggestions no later than February 17th. If you have any questions, please contact one of your church council members.
