Connections: Join a Life Group

This past January St. John’s jumped into a Connections Series that helped to define and organize Life Groups as a place of prayer and discipleship stories. We thank God for the many blessings and accomplishments we have experience in this area of ministry, for the ways God’s people have been connected to and through the Life of Christ, and the ongoing work to increase and lead more Life Group interactions.

Join us in worship for a conversation geared around the profound blessings of being connected to the life of Christ and to one another in Life Groups.

Writing your Legacy Letter

Writing your Legacy Letter is a way of documenting your generosity through Christian estate planning. Sharing with your loved ones “why your faith walk” was so important is a fundamental key to transferring faith values.  Contact Craig Toerpe, Gift Planning Counselor of the LCMS Foundation to answer questions regardings gifts to ministry, or other questions you may have regarding your Lifetime Plan for Giving at 262-707-3005 or craig.toerpe@lfnd.org.
