Announcements and Messages for the Community

Outreach during Lent.  Pick up a Blessings Lent Calendar and participate at home.  Throughout Lent, add an item each day to a box to be donated to a food shelf or pantry near your home, work, or school.  

Celebrating Lent at Home.  A week devotional is also available for download if you’d like to take some time during this season for additional personal reflection.

Live Streaming Technician:  We want to train others on setting up the equipment and monitoring live-streaming services.  If you are familiar with Facebook and how to post content, this is all the technical skills needed.  Contact Michelle Bachmann if you’re interested.

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!
