In 1517, on October 31, Martin Luther posted his 95 theses on the door of the Wittenberg Church. This marks the 500th Anniversary of that momentous event. Although Luther and no one else, realized it at the moment, it was a day that changed the world. We need to celebrate that! Our bulletin will have something written by Luther or written by someone else about him. We need to know who this man was and we need to know again why we are Lutherans! 

Do you have loved ones or friends that need prayer?  Pastor has begun a prayer ministry at Saint John's and is seeking a group that can devote ten minutes per day to pray for the church and all of those in need. Please call the church office and give generously as Jesus instructed when requesting prayer.
