This annual February event is the youth's major fundraiser for their summer mission trips. Besides a great meal prepared by parents & served by the youth, the evening includes both a silent and live auction. You can dine in or carry out - and gluten free pasta is available! You can help our youth by purchasing tickets for the meal and bidding on auction items that night.
Always the Saturday prior to Holy Week, St. John's invites children in the community and their families to Easter Family Fun Day. Food and games are provided plus a Bible story time to share the Easter story. There are many opportunities to help with this annual event.

Our annual Ice Cream Social is held in May in Wendt Hall. It's a chance for you to listen to our very own Cheerful Chimers, Jubilee Ringers, Ringing Saints, and Celebration Ringers performing many popular musical selections while you enjoy a bowl of ice cream with all the toppings.
Each year, St. John's transforms itself into an ancient Biblical site for Vacation Bible School. In previous years we have experienced Nazareth, Egypt, Rome, Babylon, and Galilee. This year at Vacation Bible School we will journey through Athens with Paul.
"Imagine leaving a life of privilege and power to face angry mobs, painful imprisonment, and chain-breaking earthquakes - all to spread the life-changing truth of God’s love. Learn the jaw-dropping story of the Apostle Paul…straight from Paul himself! In an ancient “anything goes” culture, Paul will inspire kids to share the truth of God’s immeasurable love today!"

It's going to be another great summer adventure at VBS!
