JANUARY COUNCIL HIGHLIGHTS


The St. Johns Council made plans for
the Annual Meeting and election of new
representatives to the Council at their
January 21st meeting. They reviewed
the list of candidates and thanked the
outgoing council members - Kayla
Mertz, David Merritt, Brett Simonson,
Linda Downs and Lori Stratton for
serving the congregation so well.
The Council members made plans to
host a pot luck dinner prior to the
annual meeting and reviewed the items
that would be shared at the meeting.
The call committee has participated
in completing the congregational
profile for calling a senior pastor. Input
from the congregation is being sought
at the annual meeting.

One adult-size toothbrush in its


original packaging (Toothbrush
multi-packs may be used by sealing
an individual toothbrush in a
business-size envelope; no plastic
bags or wrap)
One sturdy comb, remove
packaging
One metal nail clippers (attached
file optional), remove packaging
Wrap all the items in the towel and
tie securely with ribbons or yarn.
Look for the washtub in the west
hallway for your donations.
We can make a difference!

A complete copy of the minutes is


available by mail or email by
contacting the church office.

Sharing Gifts of
Extraordinary Love
Pens and pencils, a toothbrush, a quilt
ordinary items we take for granted
become treasures in the hands of their
recipients. The items you send with
Lutheran World Relief will be
cherished and used by people who
take nothing for granted, for whom
even a simple bar of new soap is
special. What to include in a personal
care kit:

One light-weight bath-size towel


(between 20"40" & 52"27"), dark
color recommended
Two bath-size bars (4 to 5 oz.)
of soap, any brand, in original
wrapping

Your prayers are


requested for
Melinda McVey

is ordained on
Sunday, February
8, at Salem
Lutheran Church in Lake Mills, IA.
Melindas husband, Pr. Scot
McCluskey, served St. Johns as
Associate Pastor for
