My Friends in Christ, 
Properties is looking for volunteers to help out with little projects at the church, parsonage and the school. If you or anyone that you may know outside of the congregation is willing to volunteer, It would be greatly appreciated.
A volunteer sign up sheet will be posted in the Narthex. 
Thank you for your support.

Properties Manager 

Double Good Popcorn is a Pop-Up Virtual Fundraising Store which lasts only 96 hours. We encourage everyone to forward the link and dates to your friends and family via text or email. Then you can ask your family and friends to forward the info to everyone in their contact list. Think of all the Girl Scout Cookies, candy bars or raffle tickets you purchased to support someone else’s fund raisers. The purchaser buys directly from Double Good Popcorn and the product is delivered to their home. Our church will receive 50% of every bag sold. We’re asking everyone to purchase at least “ONE” bag. Of course, the more the better for our fundraiser. We will be renting a charter bus for $2500.00 to travel to Lancaster Pa. on July 18, 2024 to Sight and Sound Theatre to see the Biblical Story, “Daniel.” This fundraiser will assist in offsetting the total cost for those attending. The virtual store will be available from 9:00 a.m. March 10 – 9:00 a.m. March 14 at https://www.doublegood.com/shop.

Beginning on March 10 at 9:00a.m., you will go onto the site https://www.doublegood.com/shop, look for St. John’s Lutheran Church. This will take you to the page where you may order your popcorn. You’ll know you're on the correct page when you see the name of our church and a picture of Lorrie Lee. It will say, Lorrie Lee’s Pop-Up Store, the goal, along with an explanation as to what the fundraiser will be used for.

St. John’s Lutheran Church Prayer Chain



We are always seeking additional members of the

congregation who would like to be part of the prayer chain.

     Being part of this is quite simple and very rewarding.

The way the chain works is that prayer requests are phoned into Anita Neitzel at (718) 442 2519. She writes down the request, prays, and then passes the prayer request on to the next person. If no answer, she leaves a message and calls the next person on the list to keep the chain of prayer going. When the last person on the chain receives the prayer request, they will let Anita know.


         Please pray about your participation and call Anita Neitzel at (718) 442 2519 if God leads you to be part of this ministry.


Thank You and God Bless You,

The Prayer Chain Participants
