Facebook welcome to St John's Lutheran Church! thanks for visiting.

In july....

Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. Ephesians 4:15-17 (ESV)

It is July already. This is the time of year for beach trips and days on the lake. It is also time for spiritual renewal.

While you take a rest, and go on vacations, we are hard at work planning other opportunities for you to grow in every way into him who is the head of the Church, Jesus Christ our Lord.

On July 3, First Sunday continues with a light meal just perfect on a hot summer night, followed by uplifting music, and an interactive bible study.

On July 9, you can skip cooking breakfast and come to our community breakfast and join the whole body of Christ in Statesville in helping out our local charities with good food and fellowship unlike any other time of the month.

On July 11, the men of St. John’s are gathering to look to the future and design ministries just for them—adding on more parts of the body helping the body grow, as it builds itself up in love.

July 12-14 is time for a summer celebration, with more light summer meals, and learning the 9 Arts of Spiritual Conversation. See me to get your book and read ahead of time. We will also have crafts and summer dessert fun.

Our growth continues with men’s breakfast and bible study at Greg’s BBQ on July 14.

On July 17, we continuing our growing in faith as we gather for our second Munchin’ for Mission.

If you miss Sunday worship anytime, you can livestream or watch past services by clicking the following link: St. John's Video Services, or watch us on Time Warner Cable Channel 20.

Join us every Thursday for Lunch, Scripture & Prayer - a look at the upcoming Sunday’s lessons and Gospel. Note: No LSP (Lunch, Scripture & Prayer) on July 28 while I am on the youth mission trip.

It is my prayer that your summer is a time of renewal physically, emotionally and spiritually. When each part is working properly the body grows and builds it-self up in love for self, and community.

In Christ,

Pastor Ernie
