JEHOVAH LUTHERAN SETS
NATIONAL NIGHT OUT FETE

Jehovah Lutheran Church at 1566 Thomas invites neighbors to its National Night Out celebration starting at 5:30 p.m Tuesday, Aug 5.

The free event in the church parking lot will include music, games, food and giveaways.

SING ALONG WITH BACH:
CHURCH HOSTS CANTATA AUG. 17

Jehovah Lutheran Church at 1566 Thomas Avenue will host a Johann Sebastian Bach cantata at its 9:30 a.m. worship service on Sunday, Aug. 17.

All singers are welcome to join an improvised choir to perform Bach's "Thy Will O Lord be Done for Me."

Singers are asked to attend at least three of the five rehearsals at the church:
  • 7-8:30 p.m. Wednesdays, July 23, July 30  Aug. 6;
  • 2-3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 9; and
  • a dress rehearsal with the orchestra at 6:15-7:20 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 13.

The score will be provided. More information is available from director Ben Wegner at wegnbe01@luther.edu.

Clothing and Household Items 
for Congolese & East African
Refugee Families Needed

Jehovah Lutheran Church is gathering donations of clothing and household items for Congolese refugees. Most-needed now: bedding for twin size beds; towels of all sizes; kitchen pots & pans. Always needed: good clothing and shoes; money for bus passes; and toiletries.

Jehovah Lutheran, at 1566 Thomas in St. Paul, hosts an office for CEEDS, the Center of Employment and Education Development Services, a group working with Congolese.

 Donors are welcome to leave clothing and other items in good condition in the church entry on Thomas. Tax-writeoff slips are available at the shopping cart nearby. Decades of war have created havoc in the central African nation. Some fleeing the violence are expected in St. Paul, where Congolese immigrants have an established community.

Pastor Justin, director of CEEDS, has just returned from a trip to four refugee camps in East Africa. He writes, “ I met Congolese refugees in these camps who are living in horrible conditions for over 10 years; I prayed with them and encouraged them by the Word of God (scripture), and shared meals with some.. and met officials in these countries that deal with Congolese refugees.”

There are currently three new refugee families from the Congo in the Twin Cities. The larger influx will be later due to an already high number of refugees in the Twin Cities area from other countries. Pr. Justin asks our prayers that those waiting in camps may soon find new homes.

Adult Bible Class (ABClass)
Old Testament Bible Study Continues

(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.

The WHEREhouse
Formerly Known as theAlley-Midway

Officially starting on June 1st, theAlley-Midway became independent from its mother church in Cottage Grove. theAlley-Midway has renamed its church as The WHEREhouse, which is derived from Matthew 18:20; Jesus says “For where two or three gather as my followers, I am there among them.” The name appears to ask the question, “Where?” while all along, Jesus tells us that he is “Here."

Even though The WHEREhouse will offer weekly bible studies and worship services, much of the church's ministry will be directed to meet God's people where they are. To do this, instead of having a worship service, THE WHEREhouse once a month will "be the church" by engaging in outreach activities. In addition, the church aims to create several "Life Groups" (aka. home groups, bible study groups, etc.). To lead these efforts, the church is in the process of placing a call for an ordained LCMS pastor.

During this time of transition, The WHEREhouse will continue to look to God for direction on how it can best serve His people and its surrounding community as well as spread the Good News of His Son Jesus Christ. The WHEREhouse has been gracious of Jehovah's support over the past three years and would continue to ask Jehovah to keep The WHEREhouse in your thoughts and prayers.

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.
