This past weekend, St. John’s confirmation was held. Sixteen 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.

Progressive Ag Safety Day
This week the third and fourth graders are participating in the virtual Progressive Ag Safety Days put on by the Winona County SWCD. In the afternoons the students have connected via Zoom with other students around Winona County to learn about safety using lawn mowers, ATVs, bikes, farm equipment, cleaning fluids, and what to do before you dig around your home. Thank you to all the sponsors in Winona County who made this learning event possible.
Luther High Band
Mr. Witte and Mr. Baures from Luther High School were at St. John's today to talk to the 4th and 5th graders about the Luther Elementary School Band program. The 4th and 5th graders had the chance to try a clarinet, flute, trumpet, and tuba. The students each received information and registration information for this coming school year. The band program is open to all 5-8 graders at St. John's. Contact Mr. Witte, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Mr. Baures, email@example.com, for more information.
Connecting with St. John's Shut-Ins
In the last few weeks, K-2 helped make picture frames for the elderly and/or shut-ins from St. John's and Jehovah/Altura. The children enjoyed working with Linda Ballard and the Dorcas Society to put together "May Day" gift bags. It was great to prepare a gift that will bring so many smiles!
