St. John's will be holding its Annual Golf Outing on Wednesday, July 29 at the Timber Point Golf Course in Great River.
We have tentatively set up a start time of 1:30 with dinner and liquid refreshments at 6:30. We are also exploring the possibility of having a 9-hole round, starting at 3:30 for those golfers who can't make it at 1:30, or who might like a less arduous golf outing experience.
We are asking anyone who is interested to sign up as soon as possible. The more golfers we can guarantee, the lower our costs per golfer. Of course, the price for golfers who sign up for 9 holes and dinner will be appropriately less. Either way, the price will be competitive with last year’s rate. By signing up, you are only indicating interest so we can offer the golf course a rough headcount. Once we have the price nailed down, we will distribute the registration forms for “official” sign up.
A sign up sheet will be available at the back of the church during all services, and in the office during the week. Or, you may simply respond by email ( Stjohns11782@aol.com
) with your name, holes to be played (9 or 18), and number of people in your group. Please indicate your interest to us by May 1st, and then, look for the registration forms in mid-May.
So, check your calendars, talk to your friends and SAVE the DATE!

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 email@example.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!

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.
