Streaming Worship for May 10: The Unexpected Call of Isaiah
We continue our worship series: “Well, That Was Unexpected!” This Sunday we consider God’s unexpected call of Isaiah. God called Isaiah as a prophet through a dramatic vision of heavenly glory. Well, that was unexpected! Isaiah’s immediate reaction was a cry of repentance. What does repentance have to do with the unexpected calls in our lives today?
Please go to this page (http://stjohnslutheran.net/live-streaming-worship-at-st-johns/) for information regarding the services and to link to the live stream itself. For all our services, we encourage you to download the worship handout prior to the service. The handout contains the words to the hymns and songs, as well as the readings, and the other components of the service. The handout also describes how to worship the Lord with your offering.

Mission Farm Scarecrow Competition
Are you looking for something different to occupy your time while being sheltered-in-place? The Mission Farm is looking for a few good scarecrows; to overlook and protect the Farm and ward off the terrible, hungry, crows, who eat our garden seeds. We thought we would ask the people of St. John’s to help us out, by creating some fun and competition. Please help us SCARE the crows away.
