Pastor Bruening's Message
Good Things and Ebenezer
Samuel’s naming of a stone “Ebenezer” was in thankfulness for the
Lord’s divine assistance. As we acknowledge God’s bountiful
blessings individually and in our congregation, we too are setting
up our own “Ebenezer.”
Succeeding Jerry Kuker, we are blessed to now have David A. Lincoln,
an accomplished Musician leading our Music Program.
After Lynn Kahl announced her retirement as Principal, we went
through an extensive search and are blessed to have our own Teri Lyn
Mannes accept this position.

Members have contributed over $15,000 to District and Synod during
the first eight months of the fiscal year, this money has been
forwarded and there is no outstanding balance. An additional $7,600
has been received for St. John’s Designated Charities and these
funds will be distributed before June 30, 2016. Also, the Church has
made great strides in paying down the Designated Charities Funds
that date back to 2011 and beyond. The outstanding obligation has
been reduced to $25,000 from $52,000.
Soon we will begin to look for a new shepherd for the congregation
and trust in God to provide an appropriate candidate.

can be on autopilot and it allows God to be in charge. With Him in
charge, it gives

led to making connections and starting other new small groups. I am
open to meeting new people and seeing the resources God has given us
with people and we get to see how He works in our lives. People can
be threatened by church.
