Volunteer for Vacation Bible School

If you’re an adult or a teen, there’s still time for you to get involved with VBS! We’re still looking for volunteers to serve in the following areas:

  • Prepare, serve, and clean up supper. If you like to be in the kitchen, we would love to have your smiling face and your helping hands feed all of these kids and their parents.
  • Work with the kids. We could still use a few small group leaders to guide kids from one activity to the next and participate with them.
  • Decorate/set up or tear down. There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes before and after a week of VBS!

If you are interested, please contact Erin at ebjerke@stjohnfargo.com or 701-232-8521.

Join us June 6 to view “13” documentary

We invite all of you to come and join us at St. John on Wednesday, June 6, for a showing of the documentary simply entitled “13.” The title comes from the 13th amendment to the US Constitution that outlaws slavery. The documentary, about two hours long, is a history of race relations in our country. Pastor Mytch Dorvillier, a native of Haiti and a member of our Eastern North Dakota Synod staff, will be with us and will moderate the evening for us.

We will begin with a potluck at 6:00pm in the fellowship hall; Pastor Mytch will lead us in a devotion at 6:45pm. We will view the documentary from 7:00 to 9:00pm and then have a time for questions. This sounds like a full evening, but we are excited about the opportunity to grow in our understanding of what presently is going on in our nation. This event is sponsored by our Social Concerns/Mission Committee as well as our Reconciling in Christ Committee.
