This is not so different from the time of the Reformation in the 1500s or today. Who will King Rehoboam listen to? Who do we listen to? Bulletin Prayer List St. John’s Weekly

Theme of the Day This is an enormous weekend for St. John’s in our community with the 38th Annual Country Fair Day. As a church, we gather together to worship and live out an initiative from our 2016 Strategic Mission Plan for unity. We are traditional and contemporary. We are youthful and aging. We are Republican and Democrat and Independent. And we are one in Christ. We come together in unity for worship to give thanks to God for the whole church of St. John’s, our regional Delaware Maryland Synod and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA.org).
