Hazy Days of August
There are so many things on my head and heart these days, that I had a difficult time settling in to write this article for the month of August. I realize that many of us are trying hard to fit in one last summer event before the activities of the fall season are upon us. I think that in many ways, August is a transition month. It’s still summer but the fall activities are knocking on the doorstep and indeed, in some cases, the door will open and things will start to happen. One example is that school starts back in session in August. Are we ready?
At St. John’s, too, many things are being considered. At the writing of this article, we are not yet able to nail down specifics, but we are considering transitioning to some of what was done here in the past, several years ago. We are in discussion as to whether we might return to two worship services or to stay with one. There is much to consider, so watch for further information. Not in August, but soon after that we will return to having Sunday School!! Watch for information regarding the date and time soon. Make plans to find your place in our life together here at St. John’s.
Other highlights for this August include the Ministry Fair on August 29th following worship where we hope to showcase just how many wonderful things we do have happening here at St. John’s. This will be a fun event which follows our worship service. The worship service will also be a special way to end the month and begin things new. Bishop Jeff Clements will be will us to officially install me as your senior pastor here at St. John’s. I hope as many as possible can be here to end the month to help celebrate the ministries of St. John’s and my being with you as Pastor.
Let me say thank you as well to the congregation for your support of the two youth trips that we had this summer. Our youth were excellent examples of faith-filled young people both at Lutherdale and at Sky Ranch. Thanks to you parents and congregation members for your support of our youth ministries here at St. John’s.
May God be with you. See you in the pews!
