Weekly Worship at St. John's
St. John's worships weekly on Sunday mornings.

Sunday Worship

We invite you to join us in giving glory to God as we continue our journey. St. John’s is giving glory to God in our church and school (Jerusalem), glory to God in the communities where we live (Judea), glory to God in nearby communities cross-culturally (Samaria) and glory to God even to the ends of the earth! (Acts 1:8).

Pastor Bruening's Message

Central American Mission Trip

Our plans for our Central American Mission Trip are underway! We plan to go to Balboa Panama, going down on Saturday July 4th and flying back on Saturday, July 11th. We hope to have three teams:

A Medical Team that will set-up a clinic to see patients. If you want to be a part of that team, the Panamanian government want to have copies of whatever license you have and so I would ask that you get me these copies.

A Teaching Team who will teach Vacation Bible Class materials to the children of the area. You do not need to speak Spanish to be part of this team.

A Construction Team that will be replacing a roof. Again, Spanish is not required to be part of this group.

If you are unable to go, but wish to support this effort, you can do so in several ways:

Pray for this group that will be going.

Financial support either to help cover the costs of some who cannot afford that full amount or money to help pay for the cost of the roofing materials.
Costs per person should be under $1.400. This would include airfare, housing and food. If you cannot afford that, several people have already said they would cover costs of those who cannot afford the full amount. You can see that Balboa is right where the Panama Canal meets the Gulf of Panama off of the Pacific Ocean.

Please let me know by Sunday, April 26th if you are planning to go. By mid-May I would need to have a definite answer.

In His Service,
Pastor Bruening

Prayer is the center of everything. People need prayer. Through prayer we can now boldly say “send me God.” A strong bond is created and we connect ....

When I am in the word daily, I feel God’s presence. I have an easier time resisting temptation and discerning His will. Reading daily doesn’t have to be doggedly endured. There are fresh new ways to do it. I can be on autopilot and it allows God to be in charge. With Him in charge, it gives ...

I started small groups because I was invited. That simple gesture has led to making connections and starting other new small groups. I am open to meeting new people and seeing the resources God has given us with people and we get to see how He works in our lives. People can be threatened by church. Small groups are ...
