On April 28th, St. John’s Confirmation held their Confirmation day. Fifteen confirmands spoke their vows of lifelong faithfulness to the Lord. We pray that God will bless and guide them as they find strength in hearing the beautiful Gospel message and participating in the Lord’s Supper.
This week, St. John’s celebrated God’s gift of grandparents with a special brunch and program. 100 excited grandparents were attendance to share a morning of worship with their grandchildren. Grandparents met their grandchildren in the sanctuary. Pastor Lindemann’s used a STOP sign to help the young and old understand the basic biblical truths taught at St. John’s. The stop sign represents
T= Jesus’ Cross
O= Open Grave
P= Proclaim or share the message
After chapel Mrs. Matzke prepared a wonderful breakfast for us. Our 7/8 grade classroom helped served the food for the delighted assembly. Principal Crist introduced himself as began the short program. During the breakfast Grades PreK-6 introduced themselves, sang songs, played bells, recorders, and read essays to enthusiastic and smiling grandparents. Finally, the grandparents visited the children’s classrooms.
The 7/8 grade students will be completing a video to share with us.
We thank all the people who made the day a success. What a wonderful blessing God gave us to spend time with each other. To Him Be the glory!

St. John's Mission Update
This school year our students have been giving mission offerings to support Branch Lutheran Schools of Haiti.
In the hopes of raising a nice sum to add to the gifts given throughout the year, we’re having a classroom giving challenge in the month of May.
Each classroom is challenged to bring in at least $100 before the last day of school.
During our lunch period, Principal Crist invited our school volunteers to enjoy a school meal. He explained to the children about our volunteer's unselfish service in art, library, keyboarding, phy ed and helping with teacher projects. Younger students wrote cards, flower arrangements were given to each volunteer, and a song was sung to thank our volunteers. We praise God for using our volunteer’s time and talents to benefit our teachers and students.
