–         Teaching Kids to Pray

A new article on Teaching Your Kids to Pray is available here!

Helping our children, at any age, to pray is a joy, privilege, and promise we parents make to the Lord. St. John continues to seek ways to support parents in this spiritual opportunity. Please take a moment to read this brief article with ideas on just how we can help our kids learn how to pray.

–         Parents Discussion via Zoom

Desire an opportunity to discuss with other parents issues related to parenting? Especially during these unusual days of eLearning, staying at home, social distancing, there is a need for parents to share with each other and support one another.

Just such an opportunity is being provided by St. John Lutheran. Each Wed. over the lunch hour (12:00-1:00 PM) and each Thursday evening 7:00-8:00 PM a Zoom meeting will be available for parents who register by emailing DCE Tim Rippstein ( to let him know which time you prefer. Discussion prompting questions will be offered, but open forum and open discussion are encouraged.

Christ’s Cupboard News

Tuesday, May 5th, 2020

Christ’s Cupboard has received generous donations from Dollar General in Seward. We are grateful for this assistance which has helped us share food with those in need in our community especially during the pandemic. 

Thanks to the generosity of St. John members Christ’s Cupboard has received many cash donations. We are thankful that such donations allow us to purchase food when we are low on certain items. However, right now, so much has come in that we would ask you to hold off on cash donations to the pantry (directing them instead to the St. John general fund). We will let you know when our fund is getting low and additional help is needed. In the meantime, we will still accept in-kind donations left in the grocery carts at the west entrance. Your support has been and continues to be a great blessing to many in our community!     Christ’s Cupboard Committee

St. John family, Christ’s Cupboard is a place for everyone. If you need food, even if it’s just for a couple of weeks, or if you  know of someone who could use a little help, we encourage all of you to come. We are fully stocked, ready to help, and are practicing safe social distancing measures.  Pantry hours are Mondays 3-5 pm, Thursdays 6-8 pm and Saturdays 9-11 am.
