From Pastor Toensing
St. John Saints in Christ Jesus,
I am truly blessed and grateful for the work God is doing in our
congregation through His redeemed children. As I work among you,
dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I see your faith in Christ
overflowing in love. Love is faith in action. I appreciate the work
of our boards and committees and groups. I appreciate the
participation of many in Bible studies and worship. I enjoy seeing
so many people committed to the ministry of this congregation. You
are giving. You work among one another serving. I see and hear the
positive attitudes. And there is love and concern for one another. I
am thankful to God for you and your service. (more...)
