Special Offering in May for Lutheran World Relief  

This month you will find a special offering envelope for donations to Lutheran World Relief.  In 2014 LWR reached more than 4,763,599 people working with 141 local partners on 153 projects in 35 countries.  LWR was able to quickly respond to the April 25th earthquake in Nepal, as they already had active projects in the quake area.  Additional staff from LWR’s Emergency Operations were sent to assist Nepal staff on the ground.  LWR is shipping 9,240 quilts, 1,000 Personal Care Kits, and 100 water filtration units.  Money is needed to continue these and other efforts in Nepal, which are coordinated with local partners and the international community.  In addition, LWR works with partners around the world to provide lasting solutions to poverty, injustice and human suffering.  Please consider a special donation this month to Lutheran World Relief.  For donations by check, please write your check to St. John’s Lutheran and indicate LWR on the memo line.

Church Community Builder (CCB) is St. John’s New Online Directory!

This January, St. John’s transferred all of its electronic records (addresses, phone numbers, membership information, financial statements, baptism dates — everything!) to this web-based church management software.  It has taken a few months for the information to get sorted out, but the exciting part is we are ready to share it with everyone!  Just login to CCB to have up-to-date contact information for everyone!

Please login and verify your contact and family information.  If information needs to be updated, changed or added you can do that by clicking on the “Edit My Profile” link on the right hand side.  We will have a table in the Commons on Wednesdays and Sundays through May to help or to answer any questions you may have.  Also please feel free to contact Leah with any questions or concerns. We are still learning as we go along but just couldn’t wait any longer to introduce CCB to the congregation.  So as we jump in we welcome any feedback or tips.

The link to CCB can be found on our website on the top right of the home page.

Watch for additional information and tips on CCB in our newsblast, bulletins, and the Voice.
