Can You Lend A Helping Hand?
LCMS World Relief is there in times of tragedy such as what we are currently witnessing in the Philippines. Our Church makes simple quilts that are given to those in need of a little warmth around the world. We need more hands to accomplish this task. Please lend your hand to help this important ministry.
How can you help? Join us when we meet to quilt. Don’t sew? That’s fine; we just need your willing hands. There is plenty of work that does not involve any sewing. Check the Church calendar for meeting times. Don’t have two hours to spare? That’s fine too; come for the amount of time you can. We welcome your help; many hands make light the work.
Can’t join us? How about donating some fabric? We make use of old sheets, pillow cases, blankets, quilts, curtains, tablecloths…anything with some yardage of material. Donated material can be left on the cart in the room next to the kitchen where the freezers are located.
If you would like to learn more about our quilting ministry please consult Vangie Kuehl (920-474-4181), The next scheduled quilting time will be Tuesday, January 14 beginning at 6:00 p.m. Hope to see you there. Thank you for your help!
It’s that time again! Please call Thrivent 800-847-4836 to redirect your Thrivent Choice Dollars for the 3rd Quarter. For the additional $20.00 dollar campaign we received $280.0. To date we have received $1951. Thank you!!
PLEASE REMEMBER the families in need in our community by donating to the Ashippun Bread Basket. Just pick up an extra item while you are out shopping, and place it in the cart in the Narthex. Current need suggestions are soup, peanut butter, cereal, and canned fruit. Thank you!
A BIG THANK YOU
We would like to thank our church family for supporting us in work for Ashippun Bread Basket by attending the Soup/Salad Lunch and Silent Auction to enjoy eating some delicious soups and salad, bid on the silent auction and receiving some of the items in return, and also by donating desserts.
Thank God for the beautiful weather! Thank God for
all the customers that we had! Thank God for all the
cakes received! Thank God for ALL the people who worked,
because without all their help we would never be able to
have this social! Everyone working together has helped
make the social a great event! Thank you!
From the Ice Cream Social Committee Meeting October 2nd 6:30.
All lades are welcome and encouraged to see what the Ladies
Aid is all about.

The Article 10 – Marriages and weddings will be voted on at our Annual Meeting in January
ARTICLE 10 – MARRIAGES AND WEDDINGS
A. Either the Bride or the Groom must be an active member or
B. Clergy, who are not members of the LCMS, will not be
permitted to participate in the marriage ceremony.
C. St. John’s Lutheran Church of Ashippun, being a member
congregation of The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, is and
always has been consistent with the Synod’s beliefs on marriage.
We believe that marriage is a sacred union of
one man and one woman (Gen. 2:24-25), and that God gave
marriage as a picture of the relationship between Christ
and His bride the Church (Eph.5:32). The official position
of The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, as set forth in
1998 Res. 3-21 (“To Affirm the Sanctity of Marriage and
to Reject Same-Sex Unions”), is that homosexual unions come under categorical prohibition
in the Old and New Testaments(Lev.18:22, 24; 20:13;
1 Cor. 6:9-10; 1 Tim. 1:9-10) as
contrary to the Creator’s design (Rom 1:26-27).
The positions and beliefs can be found on the LCMS
website, along with other statements, papers and reports
on the subject of homosexuality and same-sex civil unions
and “marriage”. Our pastor(s) will not officiate over any
marriages inconsistent with these beliefs.
D. Our church property may not be used for any marriage
ceremony, reception or other activity that would be
inconsistent with our beliefs and this article (Article 10)
Privileges and Duties of Communicant Members
The Board of Elder’s was going through some parts of the
Constitution and we came across this By-law and wanted
to share with you the expectations of our members.
D. Privileges and Duties of Communicant Members
It shall be the privilege and duty of members of this
1. Grow in the Christian faith and life through faithful
use of the means of grace, searching the Scriptures at
home and in fellowship with other members of the
congregation and its agencies, and partaking of the
Lord’s Supper frequently.
2. Live a morally decent life before God and man, abstaining
from open works of the flesh (Gal. 5:18-21), and so
conducting themselves at all times as to bring credit rather
than blame upon the Church of Jesus Christ.
3. Provide for the proper Christian training of their children
by instruction at home and through the agencies of the
4. Contribute toward the maintenance of the congregation and the
extension of the kingdom of God at home and abroad to the limit
of their financial ability.
5. Place their God-given talent and abilities at the disposal
of the Pastor, the officers, and other agencies of the
congregation as set forth in its Constitution and By-Laws,
so that the purpose and functions of the congregation may
be effectively implemented.
