Can you believe it is almost time for the new school year? School supply lists are ready and the stores have all the supplies on their shelves. This is a reminder that we at St. John's continue to support Lutheran World Relief. In addition to making quilts, we also assemble school kits. A total of 8 items are needed for each kit. LWR is very specific about items that are allowed in the school kits -- 70 pg. spiral notebooks, rulers, pencil sharpeners, blunt scissors, unsharpened #2 pencils, ink pens (no gel), 16-24 crayons, and erasers.
When you are shopping, would you consider purchasing and donating any of these items for our LWR School Kit Project. There is a box marked "School Supplies" in the Fellowship Hall for these items. Thank you for your continued support of LWR.
An Update from our Seminarian
We are excited to announce that Maria has successfully completed her CPE course (Clinical Pastoral Education) at Mercy Health in Rockford. She will begin her internship at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Evansville, WI on September 1st. Once the year-long internship is complete, Maria will spend her final year on campus at Wartburg Theological Seminary in Dubuque, IA. Please continue to include Maria and her family in your prayers.
You are invited to join the Quilting Group in the Fellowship Hall on Tuesday, September 25th beginning at 9am. Did you know that our Quilters make quilts for Lutheran World Relief, Romanian Orphanages, the Mendota Lutheran Home, and the PADS homeless shelter? They also gift baby quilts to newly baptized children at St. John’s. We are currently in need of fabric and sheets. You may drop items off in the church office. Thank you!
