Adult Bible Class Study for August:
"The Other Gospel -- John"
Sundays at 10:45 in the Lounge
Coffee, prayer, interactive study

The Adult Bible Class (ABC) once again tunes in to hear Dr. Prof. Luke Timothy Johnson of Candler School of Theology, Emory University, deliver his crisp insights into the gospels -- this time that "other" gospel, John.

The lectures are from The Great Courses series called "Jesus and the Gospels," and four 30-minute DVD discourses cover background, themes and unique aspects of John's gospel. Johnson cites John's language as the simplest of all the four gospels, yet the most flowing and compelling in its story. Since the gospel readings for this season of the church year are from John, chapter 6, a look at this gospel undergirds worship time as well.

All are invited to join the study and group discussions led by Maynard Dorow which follow the DVD lectures.

Note: there will be no ABClass on August 16 as the congregation is gathering immediately after worship for a special brunch. Class resumes on August 23, and the gospel of John will likely continue into September.

 Bring your questions, your study Bibles and your love of scripture and join us when you can!

REFUGEE CLOTHING DONATIONS NEEDED

Jehovah Lutheran Church continues to gather clothing and other items for Congolese refugees. The church has so far helped 76 families with clothing donations.

Congolese refugees have been living in refugee camps for as long as 10 years, and more now are arriving in Minnesota

Donations of bus cards, cleaning supplies, toiletries, detergent and dish soap, dishes, big cooking pots, microwave, used TV or radio and clothing are urgently needed, says the Rev. Justin Byakweli, executive director of CEEDS USA (Center for Employment and Education Development Services), a group founded in 2011 to help refugees.

The group has an office at the church. More information is available by calling 651-230-8957 or 651-239-7581.

Donated items can be left at the church, which is at 1566 Thomas in St. Paul.
Call for a drop-off time: Shirley, 651-628-4934 or Lydia, 651-644-7421.

Ancient City is Subject of Concordia Prof's Book

Mark Schuler of Concordia University and a member at Jehovah Lutheran Church in St. Paul is co-author of a new book about the ancient city of Hippos in Israel, where he has excavated for years.

"Hippos (Sussita) of the Decapolis: The First Twelve Seasons of Excavations (2000-2011)," Volume I, (University of Haifa, 2013, 323 pages, $130) describes an ancient city on a low mountain overlooking the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel, the area in which Jesus began his ministry. Hippos, also called Sussita, flourished through Greek and Roman phases before finally becoming an important center for early Christianity. It was destroyed in an earthquake in about A.D. 750.

Schuler, chair of the theology department at Concordia University in St. Paul, has led teams of students and volunteers to excavate at the site. Volunteers get a discount: The book only costs them $100.

SEVEN EAGLE SCOUTS INDUCTED

(click photo to enlarge)

Seven young men were inducted as Eagle Scouts during an Eagle Scout Court of Honor Dec. 28, 2013, at Jehovah Lutheran Church in St. Paul:  Matthew Westpfahl, Jared Bluhm, Jacob Goodale, Connor Heck, Derek Murray, David Kolar, and Kaiden Hanan.

Only seven percent of Boy Scouts achieve Eagle Scout rank. Of these inductees, all active in scouting since age five, six attended Central Lutheran School in St. Paul. All seven received a letter of congratulations from President Obama.

For more information, see the Neighborhood page.

Church Youth

Sunday-school kids helped collect food-shelf items.

Come and sing!

Our mixed-voice choir for singers from seventh grade to adult rehearses from 7-8 p.m. Wednesdays and sings up to four Sundays per month, primarily at the 10:45 a.m. service.

We sing, have fun during rehearsal, support each other in tough times, pray together and throw great parties.

If you have a busy schedule, it's OK to come when you can — or you could just join us for the great music of Christmas and Easter.

For more information, contact Elizabeth Wegner at ewegner@clssp.org.
