Adult Forum: Reconciling in Christ – Crafting a Welcome Statement Part 1

Adult Forum: Reconciling in Christ – Crafting a Welcome Statement Part 1
Sunday, May 1
9:45 a.m., St. John’s Hall

As many of you know, this year, we are intentionally exploring the topic of God’s welcome, human sexuality, and the possibility of becoming a Reconciling in Christ congregation. Part of this process has included the possibility of St. John’s crafting a welcome statement that specifically includes people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. This Sunday we would like to begin that discussion of what such a welcome statement might look like and we want your input! At this forum, together, we will come up with words and phrases that help describe who St. John’s is, who is welcome here, and why.

National Lutheran Choir Concert: The Minnesota Tradition

The National Lutheran Choir, under the direction of David Cherwien, will share a concert celebrating the rich tradition of sacred choral music in Minnesota at St. John’s on Friday, April 29th at 7:30 p.m. The program will feature music by F. Melius Christiansen, Olaf Christiansen, Kenneth Jennings, and others, as well as a premier performance of a work by Minnesota composer, Ralph Johnson. The choir chose to perform at St. John’s to honor this congregation’s unique place in choral history as we remember the past and look forward to the future. Tickets are on sale now at www.NLCA.com or by calling Brown Paper Tickets (800) 838-3006. Tickets also available at the door.
