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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!

1st Communion & Confirmation – Classes for each of these is beginning in September. You read that right, and there are changes this year. 1st Communion will now meet throughout the school year just like the confirmation classes. Classes will be held on Tuesday evenings from 6pm-7pm, starting with an orientation on Tuesday, September 9. This is geared for those who are entering into the 6th grade. 1st Year Confirmation will meet on Wednesdays from 5:30pm-6:30pm, and 2nd Year Confirmation will meet on Wednesdays from 7:30pm-8:30pm. Orientation for both classes will be on September 10 at 6pm in the sanctuary. In between those classes each week, our music programs for youth will meet, so there is no conflict, or, the gym will be available if you’d like to get some energy out with the high school youth. Please come to these orientation nights because there is much to discuss and explain.
SIMPLY GIVING PROGRAM: Our church offers electronic giving on a scheduled, automatic basis. If you are writing checks and preparing envelopes every week, you will especially appreciate electronic giving. It is convenient for you and provides much-needed donation consistency for our church.
