As We Gather
Jesus is at work on His mission field. He is at work in the lives not only of each of us, but also in the lives of all the people around us, even those who do not have a faith relationship with Him. Paul wrote that God “wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4). And so He’s at work seeking to bring that about.
And He wants you and me to join Him! That’s what the Mission of God is all about – joining Jesus in His mission work in the lives of those around us. Today, we are delighted to welcome Rev. Greg Finke as our guest preacher. He is the author of Joining Jesus on His Mission and the founder of Dwelling 114 Ministries.
Live-stream and in-person worship begin at 9:30 AM. Please CLICK HERE to download the link to the live-stream itself.
We will be streaming on our Facebook Page as well: CLICK HERE .
Workshop on Outreach “Joining Jesus on His Mission”
Rev. Greg Finke, author of Joining Jesus on His Mission, will be leading a workshop at St. John’s on May 14, 2022. Rev Finke, founder of Dwelling 114 Ministries (dwelling114.org) will be with us that weekend to help us grow in being the everyday missionaries that God has called us to be.
The workshop on Saturday morning, May 14, will take place in the Parish Hall from 9:00 – 12:00. Rev. Finke will also be preaching at St. John’s on Sunday, May 15 and will be leading a Bible class in the sanctuary after worship.
May God bless the people of St. John’s as we join Jesus on His mission!
Open Forum May 22
We will have an open forum after worship on Sunday May 22 to review and discuss the proposed Ministry Plan and Budget for 2022-2023. This is more than going over the numbers; this is about looking at our shared ministry and where it’s going in the next year. Copies of the plan will be made available after the Board of Directors meeting on Thursday, May 19. The open forum will take place in the sanctuary.
