Faces of the Reformation
von Bora was born in Saxony in 1499. Not much is known about her
family, though recently historians have been researching to learn
more about her early life. What is known is that she was born to a
family of impoverished nobility and that she was sent to live in a
Benedictine convent in Brehna when she was very young, around six.
Thus Katharina began her education in a convent school, leading her
on the path to becoming a nun.
In 1509, Katharina’s father arranged for her to be sent to the
Marienthron cloister at Nimbschen, where her aunt was the abbess.
Part of the Cistercian order, these nuns lived sparse lives without
any luxury and performed manual labor, especially in the field.
Katharina lived there as a postulant (candidate for the order) until
1515 when, at the age of 16, she took her vows and became a novice.
Katharina took her vows seriously in the coming years, living a life
of poverty and manual labor. (Continued

The Reason For The Season
The call process is still ongoing. Regretfully our first candidate
respectfully declined our call offer. Hopefully we will soon find a
new shepherd to lead our congregation. Please keep praying! If you
have any questions or concerns please talk with one of the elders or
anyone on the call committee. The Christmas season has come and
gone, we hope everyone had a blessed Christmas. Thank you to
everyone who has agreed to run for a office on the church board.
Worship services at St. John are scheduled each
Sunday and Wednesday. Sunday morning Communion services are held on the odd numbered weeks each month with non-communion services
held on the even
numbered Sundays. (Seasonally adjusted
- Sunday Morning - 9:00 a.m.
- Wednesday Evening - (Held during
the Advent and Lenten Season - See Calendar during those months
for service times.)
Sunday Bible Class
Join us on Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. for adult Bible class
where a variety of Christ centered topics are covered. Currently,
the book of Ezekiel is being explored.
Jesus Christ brings the Gospel (from older English, "Good-spel,"
"good news") to the world. He announces that in His person the
kingdom of God has come to mankind and that through faith in Him
people might find new and eternal life. He is Himself the Good News,
