Update: Christian Ed. & Youth Group Info

Dear St. John's folks:

After a staff conversation with Pastor David, Pastor Justin and Jolene today, we would like to communicate to you the following information.

1. The Christian Ed. Team meeting has been canceled for tomorrow evening, September 28, 2016. As of this time, there does not appear to be any pressing items to be put on the agenda for this month to discuss. Sunday School is working well, and there are no outstanding issues for staffing, curriculum or changes in the printed out schedule through our newsletter that require a meeting for September.

We will have a meeting next month on Wednesday, October 26, 2016, at 7:00 p.m. At the October meeting the Sunday School Christmas Program will be discussed, as well as other timely topics.

In the meantime, if you have any items you wish to add to the agenda, please let Jolene know. We are hoping to have meetings with printed agendas and proposals communicated in a timely manner. Of course, items may be added to a printed agenda.

We extend a thank you to those of you who participate in the Sunday Educational Program of the congregation. Attendance right now is both up and holding. This is something we celebrate.

2. For those who are parents of youth in the 7-12 grades: there had been discussion of having a meeting of parents with Aline Skogstoe and Pastor David to be scheduled on Wednesday, September 28. At this point, since there has been confusion and poor communication to those who are invited, Pastor David and Aline would like to suggest rescheduling this meeting to Monday, October 3, from 6:30-7:30 PM. This is a meeting for the parents of youth, to bring them up to speed on the basic programming for youth events from now through the end of 2016, as well as to discuss and share the vision of our youth programming for this same period. Both Pastor David and Aline invite parents to attend. This notice will go up through our text service, as well as on our social sites and the church calendar.

Thank you again for your participation, your prayers, and your interest in these programs of St John's Lutheran.

Pastor David Cox, Pastor Justin Wiese, and Jolene Ziebell
