The Christmas Eve Services Were a Wonderful Time to Celebrate Family and Fellowship in the Light of the Salvation of the Christ Child !
On December 24th we celebrated the Eve of the Birth of the Christ Child at three separate Candlelight Services; one at 4 p.m., one at 6 p.m. and one at 10 p.m.  Each service directed us to the miracle of God coming into the world as a human being, as the baby Jesus, through the reading of Biblical passages and the responsive singing of various Christmas Carols and hymns.  The St. John Lutheran Church Gospel Choir performed special music and Pastor Michael Jones preached on the wonder of that special evening.  Enjoy the pictures of these joyous celebrations as we make our way into the new year of 2020!
Another Great Oktoberfest For Celebrating Fellowship and Christ's Love!
On September 15th, St. John Lutheran Church celebrated its largely German heritage with two Polka Services (8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.) and a wonderful afternoon out back in the pavillion with freshly grilled brats, sauer kraut, spetzel and many other kinds of German (and not German) treats and foods to fill out one's plate.  The German band from the Peoria-Area German Club once again played our favorites, and the Alpine Horns showed up and even let Pastor MIchael have a try at it!  The quilt raffle was a great success with three different winners!  Delicious rootbeer floats topped it all off for dessert.  The "Car Show" was expanded this year to include other types of vehicles.  It was fun to see, and have one's picture taken, in front of any number of different collector cars.  The weather cooperated and it was a mild and beautiful day to share this feelowship in the love of Christ!  Pen in the date for next year - September 20th; Oktoberfest is open to all who want to come enjoy a great afternoon of good food and fun!  That means you!
