SSt. John’s Church family,
We have had a difficult start to our New Year 2024. The loss of several special church friends has made for sobering reflection times and soul searching. We anticipate the blessings of February as we celebrate “love” with hearts, valentines and flowers galore. All good gifts come from God so let’s keep our focus on Him! During each Sunday in February I will be presenting messages from my "Love Lessons” series with a goal of building up our hearts and strengthening our walk with God. Plan to make this “series” part of your “love list” for the month in person or online. Hard to believe that this series will lead us to begin our annual journey to the cross for Lent on Ash Wednesday February 14th! Make your plans now to be a part of this special 7 PM evening service. Share with others who and what Jesus means to you. God will bless as we share our hearts! Jesus came down to us so that one day we can go up to Him! Let’s make Christ known to our world!
Everyone please stay safe and warm! Come on Spring!
Pastor Wendell Thacker
