Dear Members and Friends of St. John’s,
I thank God for you and the privilege to serve the families of St. John’s.  I am further humbled by the way you generously shower my family with your prayers, talents, and gifts; especially at Christmas time.  Daily I get to share law and gospel with children and I have an opportunity to watch them grow physically, academically, and most of all; spiritually.  I appreciate the sacrifices you have made to provide these children with a quality Christian education- not because you must, but because you are willing.  May God bless you as you are a blessing to us. 
Sincerely the Wolffs,
Jerome, Linsey, and Ella
Dear Friends in Christ,
The greatest gift we all receive for Christmas is Christ.  Still each Christmas I am overwhelmed with the generosity of you, my brothers and sisters in Christ and this year was not different.  Thank you is not a large enough expression for the care and concern that you continue to show for me.  God has given me many blessings and if it were possible to count them, each of you would be counted right along with the rest of my blessings.
Mrs. Betty Ross
Dear Friends,
Special.  This is one of the ways I would characterize every Christmas celebration – and for many reasons. 

  • The gift of God’s Son is special.  What grace He has shown us all in giving His only Son to be our Savior. 
  • The privilege to be able to proclaim the good news of great joy is special.  It is truly a grace to be called to serve among you and with you. 
  • You treat us so lovingly in so many ways throughout the year, and especially at Christmas time, that we cannot help but be made to feel special.  We are truly humbled by all the love and kindness you show us. 
  • You are special to us and are held in a special place within our hearts and lives because of how blessed we are through you!
Thank you for all you do for us and for the Christmas gifts you lovingly and generously gave us.  We consider them special tokens to be cherished. 
We look forward to continue to enjoy the special blessing of serving among you!
Yours in Christ,
Pastor and Kathy
