Every Thursday, we share pictures from our past. While they vary from activities and members to documents and newspaper articles, it gives us a chance to reflect on how we are living, learning and serving together at St. John’s Lutheran Church & School.

JJ Parylak's project to build a deck around the flagpole area is underway. JJ has designed and worked on the project as he works to earn the Eagle Scout rank. More information and envelopes for contributing are available in the Social Hall. The project remains about $2,500 away from the funding goal for supplies. All donations are appreciated.

Ethan, Amanda and their children have served as missionaries in Costa Rica for the past four years.
