2023 Men's Gathering - Join other men in Christian fellowship on April 13-16 at Lakeview Villages in Seymour, IN as Rev. Jonathan Fisk teaches us how to “Stop the White Noise” in our daily lives. You will come to understand the importance of praying the Psalms and why the Proverbs are a philosophy on which to build our lives. Get away and enjoy God’s great creation, eat like a king at our hog roast, join in good-natured brotherly competition and much more. Visit www.mensgathering.us for info and registration.

ST. JOHN FLOWER SALE - This year, instead of doing the Dance-A-Thon, or the Walk-A-Thon, we are doing an Annual Flower Fundraiser. All monies raised from the Flower Sale will go towards classroom and kitchen improvements for our school. We are excited to try this new endeavor and hope you will join us. All order forms with payment (one check made out to St. John) need to be turned into the office by Friday, March 24th. The flower pick up day will be Saturday, April 15. More information to come about flower pick up. Click here to see the student order form. Click here for a copy of the flyer. Any questions, contact Heidi Mielke.
