benefit fundraiser_2747cBenefit to Support Angie (Dittmer) Green

Saturday, April 18, 2015 – 4:00-7:00 p.m.

 On Saturday, April 18, from 4:00 to 7:00pm, St. John’s Lutheran Church of Lake Township will be holding a benefit in support of local resident Angie (Dittmer) Green. Angie, daughter of Sue and Walt Dittmer and wife of Jon Green, was misdiagnosed several years ago with Crohn’s disease. She has been in poor health since that time and has been in and out of the hospital and ICU since October. Angie recently had to have her small intestine removed and can only receive I.V. nutrients. She is awaiting a small intestine and a pancreas transplant. Due to her ill health and hospitalizations, Angie had to quit her job as a nurse, which was the main source of income and insurance for her family, including her two school-aged daughters. They are struggling to pay the enormous mounting medical bills, as well as day-to-day expenses. All proceeds of this benefit will go to the Green family to assist them financially. The event will include a hog roast (free-will donation), silent auction, carnival games for kids (wristbands $5 each or three for $10), and live music! Come and enjoy a great time at this important event. Carry-out will be available. St. John’s is located at 7914 W. Cook Road in Ft. Wayne.

Water Sunday

water drop_9458cWhat would life be like if we woke up each day with the reality of having no access to clean water? What if our kids could not attend school because of diarrheal illnesses and we had no choice but to continue giving them dirty water? This is the reality of nearly a billion people around the globe. The Global Water Crisis is responsible for 5,500 deaths per day and 3.5 million deaths per year. Water Missions International is a nonprofit Christian organization providing sustainable safe water and sanitation solutions for people in developing countries and disaster areas. Each year on Water Sunday, churches all over the US have the opportunity to get behind them and raise support and awareness for the Global Water Crisis. This March our church will be taking part in Water Sunday for the third time. On April 26 we will dedicate our services to speaking about the World Water Crisis and how St. John’s is partnering for safe water projects worldwide. To find out more about the Global Water Crisis, visit www.watermissions.org and join us on April 26!

 

New Testament Bibles

In the back of the sanctuary, fellowship hall and in the narthex are paperback editions of the New Testament. Please take one and keep it if you need it, or give it to someone you think may want it – a neighbor, friend, co-worker, or even a stranger. This would be an easy way to share Christ’s message, love, and redeeming grace.
