St. John's Yard Signs!

Last month 100's of St. John's Yard signs were distributed to our members and school families. We hope that you are enjoying having this sign to display in your yard. However, if you would prefer to share it with someone else you can bring it to church the next time you visit the building and we will find a new home for it.  The message remains: St. John's LOVES YOU!
St. John’s July  BEDS Plus  Challenge Update!
Thank you so much for all the congregation and school support for our July BEDS Plus Challenge. We doubled our goal and will be delivering over 160 shelf stable meals later this week.
St. John's August Card Challenge
to show we care!
This August help us spread love throughout our community and beyond!

We will be collecting cards, notes and pictures to send to friends, neighbors, and nursing homes. We would love to have cards written and made by ALL ages! 

Please include encouraging messages, prayers, Bible verses and more! 

This is a great opportunity to be the LIGHT in such dark times! 
 
*DETAILS* 
  • There will be a sealed and labeled “CARD” box outside Door A of the church during the month of August to collect cards and pictures 
  • See the links for picture options for kids to color (they can also create their own). Coloring Card "1" - Coloring Card "2"
  • If you have a friend or relative that you would like us to send a card to, please email k.pece@sjlagrange 
  • If you would like to donate to help purchase candy treats or postage for sending cards you can send it in to church with you offering marked “CARING CARDS” or contact k.pece@sjlagrange.com 

THANK YOU for your help!

TOGETHER LET’S try to send over 100 CARDS this month to show we CARE! 

‘A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”  
John 13:34-35

BLOOD DRIVE : Monday, August 17, 2020 from 1:00 - 6:00 PM

St. John's will be hosting an American Red Cross blood drive on August 17th from 1:00 - 7:00 PM. As you may have heard, there is high demand for blood throughout our area. If you have tried to sign up, you will notice that time slots have filled up.  American Red Cross tests for the COVID-19 antibody therefore the time slots fill up quickly. We are working on scheduling another one in the fall and will publicize as soon as a date is set.  They discourage walk-ins at this time.  Please email Rebecca Schiltz at schiltz4@sbcglobal.net if you would like to volunteer. We need 5 volunteers to cover two shifts.
