Luther 500

St. John 101 has "Reforming" into Luther 500

Recognizing that the 500th anniversary of the Reformation occurs in 2017, we're transforming Sunday morning adult forum, St. John 101, into Luther 500. Every Sunday morning throughout the year, Pastor Mark will lead us in a study of Luther's "Small Catechism," culminating with a grand celebration on Reformation Sunday, 2017. During the course of the year, we may schedule other festivities to commemorate this important year, which might include more movie screenings, as well as an authentic German homestyle dinner complete with bratwurst and fixings. We invite you to join us Sunday mornings between services for Luther 500.

Don't miss our next session: Sunday morning at 9:05AM, in the lounge. Grab a cup of coffee between services, and join the conversation.


Altar Guild Altar Guild Signups Needed

An Altar Guild signup sheet has been posted in the sacristy. Many openings are available.

If you have no experience, training will be provided. Length of service is one month and you will generally work in teams of two. For more information, contact the church office, (609) 399-0798 or office@stjohnlutheranoc.org


Stitches & Scripture

For folks who like to knit or who have always wanted to learn how. We're happy to teach you! Some projects beginning this fall will be Knitted Knockers (ask us), items for Lutheran Disaster Response Baby Care Kits, and hats for the Seafarer's Christmas-at-Sea program.

Easter Service


Additional Giving Coffee Mug

You'll find an envelope in your pew bulletin which encourages you to go one step further in helping our St. John family meet its budget. Skip a soda, cup of coffee, or bottle of water each week, and put the $2 in the envelope.


Food Cupboard Food Cupboard

The Food Cupboard requests cereal (Corn Flakes, Cheerio's etc.), for the month of September. They can always use juice, Jell-O, dry milk, diapers, and brown paper bags. Food drop-off is located in the church lobby. People receiving food stamps may only purchase food products, so there is also a need for paper products, hand soap, dish & laundry detergent, and personal items such as deodorant, shaving cream, shampoo, toothbrushes and toothpaste.
