If you have any questions, please speak with Jennifer Knepper or call the church office at 898-5656. Thank you!!




St. John will be hosting a Holiday Bazaar on Saturday, November 9th, from 10:00-4:00 p.m. YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!!! There are several opportunities for you to help make this event a success. Donations of baked goods, homemade soups, crackers, chips, hot dogs, buns, and drinks are needed. Volunteers to help set-up and clean-up are needed as well as volunteers to help during the Bazaar. Just like last year, if you have 6-foot tables, we could definitely use them if you are willing to let us borrow them.




The sign-up sheets are in the entrance hallway. If you have any questions please see Caitlyn Brinkman or call the church office.
