Thank You St. John’s

Three years ago, I found myself living in city where I knew very few people, starting a brand new job, and feeling a little like “What have I gotten myself into!” I assure you that today, I’m thinking the same thing about a new situation. 

As you know, I accepted a position at ELCA Churchwide as a Program Associate for the ELCA Youth Gathering. While I am very excited about this new opportunity, the community I have found at St. John’s is making it very hard to say goodbye. From the moment I walked on to campus, I found a congregation full of loving, helpful folks.

A Spooky Silent Film for the Family

St. John’s Concert Series is putting on its Halloween costume and hosting a special showing of the original 1923 “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.” Walt Strony, renowned theatre organist, will provide the soundtrack and special music effects on the organ. Before the movie, a short silent comedy film, “Haunted Spooks,” will be shown.

Expanding Our Search

The Call Committee formed to seek an ELCA Rostered Leader (Pastor, Deacon, Associate in Ministry) to fill our Director of Resources & Administration position has not yielded a sufficient pool of qualified candidates. In light of this, the Congregational Council has elected to expand our search to include church-savvy lay administrative professionals.
