Drawn To The Word Through Art, Music and Scripture
What a great day of art and music we had on Sunday, May 17th as we welcomed Pastor and Artist Paul Oman. During the one hour service Paul painted the mural that is pictured, accompanied by our own musicians and readers. The service was truly inspiring and was a unique, creative worship experience. A big thank you to James Younger and Susan Garner as well as our accompanists Delle Peterson and Vicki Wujek for preparing for the special musical presentation that complimented the painting of the mural. Thank you also to our Choir and Praise Band members along with the students, college students and various St. John’s members who participated to make the day one that will be remembered. A committee of Richard & Leslie Althaus and Rita Randecker are planning the final location of the mural. May 17th was Pastor Phil and Sue Blom’s last day with us and this was a fitting service to end their ministry here at St. John’s. A reception was held in the Fellowship Hall after the service to say our goodbyes. Thank you to the Food Service Team for providing the beautiful reception.
Remodeled Women’s Family Room
The "Women's Family Room" in the northwest corner of the Narthex has been remodeled through the talents of our own Aimee Holland to be an inviting, calm, semi-private sitting area for any female member who might wish to visit the room during services. This space also offers privacy for nursing mothers or women with a small child. There is a sitting area and an adjoining bathroom with a private stall, sink, and diaper-changing table. In collaboration with Media Ministry, the room also has a high definition television that displays the live video and audio of the worship services as an inclusive service for those using the room. A remote control and simple, one-step instructions are provided for ease.
