STUDENTS LEAD ADVENT WORSHIP SERVICES

Please join us on Wednesday at 7 PM during Advent for worship services led by our students. The Advent service will take place in the Dwelling Place at St. John Lutheran Church and School.

Wed., Dec. 19 - led by students in Gr. 1-5. 


TEACHER COOKIE EXCHANGE AND
PTL SPONSORED LUNCH


Put on your aprons and start baking. We would like to do something special for the staff at St. John Lutheran this Christmas Season, and we need your help to make this possible. On Thurs., Dec. 20, the PTL is sponsoring a lunch for all of the teachers. We would also like to have a cookie event for the staff members and fill the workroom with plates of homemade goodies. Then, each staff member will get a box and fill it with an assortment of goodies that they choose. (Items do not have to be homemade) Any questions please ask Michelle Smith 317-432-6057 or fast direct.
Sign up HERE to donate cookies or for the teacher lunch.

Sign up HERE to volunteer as lunch monitor during the teacher lunch on Thursday, Dec. 20th.


LOST AND FOUND


Did your child misplace their lunchbox? Their left shoe? Winter coat? If so, the Lost and Found table is now set up. Whatever is not picked up by the end of next week, will be donated.


EAGLES BASKETBALL

Come cheer on our Reserve Lady Eagles as the take on the Our Shepherd Rams tonight at 5 pm. You can come to Trinity on Thursday night to watch our boys’ teams battle the Trojans. Reserve game starts at 5.


A "LIVE" CHRISTMAS CAROL READING


Mark your calendars for Friday, Dec. 21st from 5:30-7:30 pm for a live reading of A Christmas Carol. The reading of A Christmas Carol will run between an hour and an hour and a half. Taken, for the most part, directly from Dickens's own words, the reading will be more like a radio play with readers "acting" with their voices. The readers will be some of our own St. John members. Soups, salads and dessert will follow. Sign up to attend here

The office will be closed on Dec. 24th, Dec. 25th, Dec. 31st, and Jan. 1st, the rest of the days we’re open 8-11:30 am. Hope everyone has a safe and blessed Christmas.
