July 24 - Missionary Visit!
Dear Saints of Saint John’s,
July 24th is an exciting Sunday for us!
We finally get to meet the foreign missionary we have supported for the past two years!
Pastor Carrie Smith will be on stateside leave and preach at St. John’s on Sunday, July 24, 9:30 am. Following the service, Pastor Smith will share about her ministry at the English speaking congregation of the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Jerusalem. And, we’ll have a meal together after her brief presentation.
Please do the following:
• Make sure you and your family are in worship on July 24. It is important to extend our hospitality and meet Pastor Smith. Bring your friends and neighbors!
• Check out our website and learn about Pastor Smith’s ministry in advance of her visit.
• Go to Pastor Smith’s Facebook page and “friend” her.
Pray for Pastor Smith, her family, and their witness to Jesus in the land we call holy. As we sponsor the Smith family, may the Spirit strengthen and guide them!
