As a congregational project this year, we are collecting money to support literacy. A part of that project is a bi-lingual library for Tower Rock Elementary School. St. John’s Staff issues a CHALLENGE to the congregation! We challenge you to raise the $1000 dollars needed for Tower Rock’s library by December 23! We have $270.00 so far. If $1000 is collected, the staff will wear their least favorite football team’s jerseys on a Sunday in January. Photo ops for selfies with Pastor Sally in a Packers’ jersey or Pastor Fred in a Vikings’ jersey will be available! Let’s surprise the students at Tower Rock with new library books on their return after Christmas break!

School Kit Supplies
We are asking for your help in gathering supplies for our School Kits again this year. The kits are sent to Lutheran World Relief each fall. LWR asks that we do not use items with a U.S. flag, military symbols, camouflage or religious symbols on them.
Each kit needs:
Four 70-sheet notebooks
One 30 cm. ruler (or one with inches and cms.)
One pencil sharpener
One blunt scissors
Five unsharpened #2 pencils with erasers
Five black or blue ballpoint pens
One box of 16 or 24 crayons
One 2 ½ inch eraser
Bring items to the church office. Watch for sales and have fun shopping!
On February 4, our 5th and 6th grade Bake Sale raised $950. These funds will be sent to Lutheran World Relief (LWR) to help feed those in need by helping purchase chicks, baby pigs and other farm animals for families in need! We will continue collecting funds to help feed others because we are called to care for our neighbors. You can donate directly to LWR or by sending funds to St. John’s.
