July 24 - We Welcome Pastor Smith & Thomas Williford
On Sunday, July 24, we welcome two new faces to St. John's Lutheran. Pastor Carrie Smith, our missionary in Jerusalem, will preach and join us for a brunch following worship. And, Thomas Williford, begins as our Director of Music. Join us in worship to welcome both Pastor Carrie and Thomas!
Hymn of the Day - July 17
"Word of God, Come Down to Earth" is the Hymn of the Day this Sunday, July 17. Hear it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXyiOjv5g8s. The Hymn of the Day is always the primary song of the congregation, a hymn that reflects the theme of the day or the assigned Gospel text.
When you come to church this Sunday, July 17, the steeple of the church will likely have been removed. This is part of construction related to placing a cell tower inside of our steeple. During this part of the project, our organ has been shut down and protected. Access to the sanctuary and equipment in the parking lot might necessitate some adjustments on our part. Depending upon the weather and schedules of contractors, we hope the project completion will be only a few weeks.
