Text Box: July/August Combo Platter
July and August tend to be calmer months at St. John’s, so we’ve decided to do a one-for-two deal in this newsletter. We think we have all the important info here, but check the website or the bulletin calendar for any updates or additions to what’s happening at church this summer.
Text Box: Polka Sunday and Picnic

Our annual Polka Sunday and Potluck will be Sunday, August 13, this year! Please 
join us for a fun outdoor worship featuring “Gospel with a polka beat” and stay for an 
old-fashioned church picnic afterwards. LeRoy Deering and Friends have generously agreed to grace us with their music again. This year we’ll make a fundraiser out of it again with all proceeds going to the Hebron Food Pantry. We’ll provide the main meat dish; if you’d like to bring a dish to pass, that would be great!
Text Box: Evelyn Beese, 1924-2017

Our hearts were heavy to say 
goodbye to Evelyn, who passed away on June 15. But we also 
rejoice that she is reunited with those she’s loved and in God’s arms. Thank you to everyone who helped with her service and the luncheon afterwards on June 19.
