At St. John Lutheran Church & School, we are One in Jesus...Reaching Many. Serving others in name of Jesus is a way for our students to give thanks to God and share the love of Jesus. Throughout the school year, we intentionally seek to provide opportunities for our students and their families to serve at St. John and within the community.
Worship Service Participation
Throughout the school year, our various choirs and bands participate in worship services, helping to develop their individual and group performance skills. More importantly, singing, playing bells and playing instruments in worship service provides students with an opportunity to give thanks and praise to God.
Chapel Offerings and Casual for a Cause Donations
During the school year, students are able to provide an offering at weekly chapel. In addition, students may pay $1 to dress casual for "Causal for a Cause" days held throughout the year. The funds from these offerings and Casual for a Cause collections are given to various mission partners throughout the year. In supporting these agencies, the students are able to share the blessings that God has given them with others. We are blessed to be a blessing.
Gifts for All God's Children
One of our ministry partners is Gifts for All God's Children. Families in our church and school can sign up to purchase gifts for at-risk children in urban areas based off of wish lists submitted. Students take their gifts to the front of the sanctuary for a blessing during a special chapel service held in December to be opened on Christmas morning!
Classroom level service projects
Students participate at the classroom level in serve opporutnities, such as making cards for shutins, tying blankets for shelters, raking yards, and more.
