St. John's Lutheran Church, as a family of faith, strives to worship and praise the Lord by hearing and learning God's Word, living it out in service, and spreading it joyfully!
Join us for worship service at 9:00 am each Sunday. All are welcome following service for fellowship time where we enjoy refreshments and conversation during Sunday Fellowship at 10:00 am. Sunday school, forum and confirmation classes are recessed for the summer and will resume in September.
The Wayout: Wonderland escape experience is a fundraiser to complete projects around St. John's. Participants find themselves “locked” in the studio of Carol Lewis which she refers to as Wonderland. Carol is an artist, a game enthusiast, and a teacher. Participants are, of course, trespassing and will be arrested, but Carol has left a path for those trapped to let themselves out if they can locate and decipher the clues that she has left for them before the alarm sounds in 60 minutes. The days are numbered for the Escape Room Experience at St. John's. The experience will only be available through Labor Day, so hurry and catch it while you can!
How does an escape room work? As an example, your group finds themselves “locked” in a bedroom. Tom finds a suitcase with a four-letter padlock under the bed. Susie notices a Morse code poster on the wall. Todd finds a key in a glass on the nightstand. The table next to a chair has a book with a bookmark on page 121, but nothing on the page is underlined or marked. The bookmark itself looks like an exclamation point; the dot is red, the line is green with the word "space" printed in purple on the back. Susie locates a locked jewelry box in the lower drawer of the dresser. Todd's key opens it to reveal several rings and necklaces. One necklace is a string of red, green, and purple beads in a seemingly random order. Tom suggests the bookmark is a key for reading the necklace as a Morse code message. Red=dot. Green=dash. Purple=space. True enough, the letters have a purple bead between them. The message reads "sporthorsesplay." Someone suggests football because of the Broncos team. Rather, it turns out to be a 4-letter word needed to open the suitcase. Do you know what it is? And so it goes.
Groups of six or more (ages 12 and up) can call for an appointment (485-3280) at $8.00 per participant. Groups smaller than six are combined to increase their chance of finding their way out. Allow 90 minutes total for introduction, experience, and debrief.
We are registered with the Scrip program which allows members to purchase cards to be used as cash at specific stores. Your purchase power does not change, but the church receives a percentage in exchange for selling said card. Forms and envelopes are available next to the Scrip box before or after church or sent to the church office. Payment (checks made out to St. John’s) must accompany the form. Orders will usually be submitted the first Monday of each month and cards should be available eight days later. The next order is due by noon on Tuesday, 05 September due to the holiday.
