Announcements and Messages for the Community

Exciting News!  Thank you to everyone who participated in Candidating Weekend.  We’re excited to announce that our call to Scott Siefert as our settled pastor at St. John’s UCC received an affirmative vote at the Special Congregational Meeting on January 9th.  He will start on February 1st.  

Consistory Team Members.  We are in need of leaders for openings in our Consistory team to lead SJUCC to fulfill its vision and mission.  Please pray-fully consider serving.  Contact Michelle Bachmann at 952-361-3033.

Share. Grow. Shine! Make sure you write ways you’ve shared your faith or grown your faith this week on a card and place it in the offering plate to be collected and celebrated. Fill our collective lantern and shine St. John’s light!

Kids N Cookies. Everyone is invited to our all-ages faith program.  It includes scripture readings, fun activities, and of course cookies!  We meet in Fellowship Hall. To be a scripture reader or sponsor cookies treats, contact Bill or Mary Hudson.  

Looking for a church family?  If you have been led to St. John’s looking to be more than a visitor, we welcome you openly to our family and would love an opportunity to chat.  Contact Michelle Bachmann or email

Facilities Caretaker Needed.  Our sanctuary and grounds are a blessing.  However, keeping up with coordinating maintenance, cleaning, and repairs is more than the Consistory Team can handle.  We are in need of a dedicated person to coordinate the efforts.  Contact a Consistory Team member if you’re interested.

The Word To Go:  Find Sunday morning worship services on our YouTube channel, St. John’s UCC-BongardsWorship will also be live-streamed on Facebook, when available.
