Goals and Grub


Mark Your Calendars: On Sunday, April 28 from 3-7pm at Inspiration Ministries Retreat Center in Walworth WI., we will come together to plan out our goals for St. John’s. This past year we were blessed to have the ability to implement some of our goals.  We (council) can’t do it alone as we rely on everyone for their insight and dreams into where God is calling us into the future.  So please mark your calendars and join us at Inspiration Ministries with ideas.
