Do It All in Jesus' Name!

Stephen Ministers bring distinctively Christian care to those in need. They use both words and deeds to express Christ's care for others--listening and comforting, calling on the training they have received and employing the tools of faith. If this job description fits your personal goals for ministry, consider becoming a Stephen Minister. A training class is starting soon. For more information, contact Pastor Schambach or Betty, 402-371-1985, or Karen Widhalm, 402-694-9031.

Norfolk Food Pantry

September is St. John's opportunity to serve the Norfolk community at the Food Pantry.  There are approximately 275 families in our surrounding area who look to our local pantry for something to eat.  St. John's gives support by donating non-perishable food and/or monetary gifts to purchase perishable items.  We also give of our time to help sack groceries and work on the computer for 2 hours weekday mornings. 

Boxes will be available in the church to drop off your donations of food items.  Monetary gifts (in an envelope designated "Food Pantry") may be placed in offering or left at the church office.  To give of your time, mark the Registration Slip in the back of your worship bulletin. 

Anyway you choose to support this local mission for September is very much appreciated by many people in the Norfolk community!
