Justice Page Food Backpack Program

Justice Page Middle School still needs our support. Given the current health risk situation, the Social Workers at Page Middle School have asked if instead of filling backpacks with food we might provide Target and CUB gift cards for hungry families.

The Giving Tree – Thank You!

Each year St. John’s Child Care Center likes to take on a group giving project to help our children realize the importance of helping others in need.

I believe — November Message from Pastor

October was a month of joyful celebrations! October 21, we hosted Kaitlyn and Isaac Johnson’s wedding. On October 29 we celebrated a baptism for Henry, a baptism for Sylvia, Clara Willette’s confirmation of faith, all under the banner of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation! All of this brought to life the saying is sure: “Truly the Spirit of the Lord is in this place!” And God’s spirit continues to blow life into us, carrying us into November.
