There will be no livestreaming for the Traditional 8am service this weekend due to staff unavailability. We plan on continuing the Traditional 8am livestream next Sunday, May 21. Thank you for your understanding.
After many heartbreaking prayers, Phil and Kat W. have decided to move to Canada. We are thankful to Kat and her 3 years of ministry and service to St. John Lutheran Church and School. We wish them many blessings on their move. Kat's last day in the office is today, Friday, May 12th. In the meantime, Kat, Pastor Watt, Doug P., our Congregational Chairman, and Bennett V., our Treasurer, have put together a transition plan to ensure that the Business Office of St. John will continue to function until Kat's replacement is found. Ivonne Z. will come in to help with the day-to-day responsibilities for 20 to 25 hours per week and Kat will continue to work from Canada on financial statements, cash reconciliations, tuition/budget, etc. Shannon V. will also be able to help you with any questions about payroll, invoices, script cards, deposits, etc.
We are blessed that Ann K., who replaced Morgan H. as the interim Kindergarten teacher, will be staying at St. John as a preschool teacher.
The Teacher Call Committee (Beth Knight, Jeff Huntington, Laura Collins, Paloma Duncan, Noah Schroeder, Justin Hunt, Desiree Caruso, Rachel Gruber, and Michele Huske) conducted several interviews last week and hope to have more soon.
The Principal Call Committee (Beth Knight, Michelle Smith, Emily Rode, Rick Kerr, Heidi Mielke, and Toni Vaught) will be surveying teachers and staff on what they would like in a Principal. We have a couple of candidates that we will be interviewing soon.
Please continue to keep the committees, candidates, and St. John Lutheran School in your prayers.
As Adult Sunday education hour will continue throughout the summer we are wanting to continue children's Sunday education hour as well. We are looking for some volunteers to help. This would be a low-commitment, perhaps only one Sunday for the summer, to supervise and lead education hour for a multi-age group of children with materials provided. If you are able, please sign up here
Don’t forget Randy Ollis is here Thursday June 1.
