St. John's Health and Wellness Expo

Saturday, May 20, and Sunday, May 21

St. John's current sermon series, Freed to Care, centers on God's amazing creation of which we are a part. We learn from the teachings of Martin Luther that we are called to be good stewards not only of the Earth but also of the bodies we have been given. Please see the Expo schedule below and attend a class or two, visit the Balcony displays, and visit the Facebook page. May you be blessed—body, mind, and spirit.
