Back to the Basics: Letters with Numbers in the New Testament – Beginning on Friday, May 1st, at 8am, the Men’s Bible Breakfast will resume at Seacrest Diner in Sayville. We will take a glance into some of those New Testament letters whose names start with numbers. These blessings to the Church really take us back to the basics of what the Christian life looks like as it is lived out in the Church and in the world. So bring your Bible and join us each Friday throughout the summer months as we explore the letters of John, Peter, and Paul. All men are welcome!

Your ‘CHOICE’ ….. have you made it yet??? Many Thrivent Financial members here at St. John’s have made their choices known and some have not. In March, some Thrivent members met and allocated over $11,000 to projects here at our church. What a blessing for St. John’s. If you are among the Thrivent members who helped with these projects, thank you. If you are a Thrivent member and haven’t as yet designated your Choice dollars, it isn’t too late. Speak to one of the 7 Thrivent Advocates here at our church, or call 1-800-Thrivent. It’s as simple as that. Or you can call Honey or Artie Pabst at 589-8353.

NEW – Women’s Bible Study!!! – It’s not just about the men around here…beginning on Wednesday, June 3rd, we will begin a women’s Bible Study, which will run every other week throughout the summer. The study will meet from 6:15-7:15pm, and the first session will be at Pastor & Kristin’s house, 45 Greene Ave. We will start by looking at one of the more famous women in the Bible, Ruth. Coffee and goodies to be served, so ladies, bring your Bible and join us June 3rd as we look at this faithful woman of God and how we might learn from her about our own life in Christ.

Divine Service Schedule

 

ATTENTION!!!  PLEASE READ!!!

 

You are holding in your hands a piece of history!  This is the last edition of St. John’s Good News in print.  Beginning in October, the Good News will move to an electronic format which will be emailed out at the end of each month.

 

What does this mean?  A very Lutheran question you ask.  Well, if you are currently on our email distribution list, then you needn’t do anything at all except look in your inbox towards the end of September for an email from the church with the newsletter attached, open the email, open the attachment, and enjoy the new and improved Good News.

 

If you are not currently on our email list, then please fill out the bottom of this slip and please make sure to print legibly.  Another alternative is to email the church office at stjohns11782@aol.com and let us know that you’d like to be added to our email list for the purposes of receiving our newsletter.  Don’t worry, we don’t send out a lot of emails and we don’t really have any deals or specials to try and entice you to come in, save the precious and free Gospel of Jesus given out each week in the Divine Service!

 

If you are not on our email list and do not do email, have no fear.  We will make a few hard copies and make them available in the narthex on the way out of church.  Live too far away?  Don’t worry…we will mail you a copy, but since we will no longer be getting the bulk price for postage, we would simply ask you for a small donation of $10 to cover the costs of shipping for one year.  Either way, just check the appropriate box on link below.

 

If you have any questions, let us know in the church office.  Thanks, and look out next month for the new Good News still filled with all the great things happening at St. John’s, and more!
