Thanks to all who have signed up for altar flower donations.  We currently have four Sundays in June that are open beginning with June 9th.  If there are special dates in between where folks want to provide flowers, we can always add pedestal flowers.  Just contact me.  In God's love, Gerry Naumann.  

 Children's Choir at St. Johannes began this past Sunday.  Kids are invited to meet in the church sanctuary at 9:00 am for a fifteen minute practice.  This will be a regular time set aside for our children to get together and learn new and old songs. Soon, they will be able to participate in our services! Our musicians, Alexis Singleton, Jasmine Crowder, and George Hiatt will be leading this group and other adults from the choir will be present and participating as well.  We hope to see all the children participate in this wonderful new ministry!
