 St. John's Lutheran Church offers summer programs for adults and youth
    Summer is here and St. John's Lutheran Church is offering programs and worship for folks who are busy but would like to stay connected to worship during the week.   
    On Wednesday July 18, worship with Holy Communion will be offered at 7:00 p.m. It is casual, so come as you are. It will include music, scripture, a message and prayer for healing to those who would like to receive.
     "This is an opportunity to stay connected with God, with community and one another, even if you are busy every single weekend of the summer," said Pastor Diane Greble. "Wednesday worship offers a window of peace in the midst of busy weeks. We welcome anyone who is seeking these things to join us."
    In addition, St. John's is offering another Community Bible Study to which anyone in the local area is welcome to participate. This four-week session will be based on the work of Bill Hybels and his study, "Just Walk Across the Room." Following the example of Jesus, participants will develop their natural, relational approach to telling their own story of faith to others. 
    "We believe people still need to encounter one another and know one another. We would like to help people break down the barriers through encouragement and friendship," said Greble, adding that the program will run on Tuesdays, July 17, 24, 31 and August 7 at 6 p.m. and will include a light supper. There is no cost; please register at or by calling 517-223-9108 before July 15.
    Of course, summer would not be complete without Vacation Bible School (VBS)! St. John's is hosting five nights of fun, faith and friendship once again. Kids ages four through teen are invited to join us on the ‘Rolling River Rampage’, beginning Sunday July 8 through Thursday July 12.  There is no cost and it includes a free family dinner each night. Each child needs to bring a white cotton t-shirt for the first night and they will tie-dye their shirts on Sunday evening. 
    Pre-register your kids at or call 517-223-9108 or show up on Sunday and register then. St. John's is glad to welcome any who seek the love and grace of God, on Sunday mornings at 9:30 or at any of these events.
