The weekend of January 3 AND January 10 we will have the updated Connections Books available in the gathering space for pick up.
The Connection Books will NOT have covers on them. Each member should simply replace the “guts” of their old book and use the slipcover they currently have. (there will be a small pile of covers available if someone needs a new one).
2021 Contribution Envelopes can be picked up in the Church Gathering Space.
DO NOTuse 2021 envelopes until January 1, 2021. After January 1, 2021DO NOT use prior years envelopes.
Take note that the contribution envelopes will be arranged in NUMERICAL order not alphabetical. Alphabetical lists will be provided in the pickup area in the event a member has forgotten their envelope number. If a member cannot find their contribution envelopes or no envelopes were provided, a sign up sheet will be available to request them.
Assistance from the Finance Ministry Team will be provided on the weekends.
Discipleship in as many places as possible.
Christmas may look a little different for you this year, but there will always be a place for our kids to sing those classic Christmas hymns! Please enjoy hearing from some of the kids at St. John’s, courtesy of our Children’s Ministry and volunteers!

St. John’s Elementary & Middle School Serve the Community
For the few weeks of December that school was in session, the students and staff decided to serve others. Even though the pandemic has limited ways to help each other, food remains in short supply for many families this year.
The West Bend community is blessed to have Full Shelf Food Pantry. The food pantry’s success depends on the community’s generosity, and St. John’s Elementary & Middle School decided to assign each class specific items. For two weeks, students and their families brought in nonperishable food and personal items, including peanut butter, pancake mix, syrup, cake mix, shampoo, and more.
Several classrooms set goals to channel their competitive spirits, while others tracked how much was donated to have visual encouragement. After chapel on Wednesday, December 16, parent volunteers delivered the items to the Full Shelf Food Pantry. The 3rd-grade class volunteered to load all the boxes in the cars for delivery.
At Full Shelf Food Pantry, volunteers unloaded the boxes and weighed the donation. In total, St. John’s Elementary & Middle School collected five pallets of food and personal items, weighing 1,150 pounds! Fantastic work, through God’s people. It is a wonderful way to encourage Christian leadership and generosity by offering students an opportunity to serve others less fortunate.
