2015 Picnic Supporters

PICNIC 2015 NEWS ..  ♫ "Oh, the weather outside was frightful, but the gym was so delightful."  Nothing stops the people of St. John's from having fun.  The picnic ground was a muddy disaster so we partied in the gym and the playground on Sunday.  The food was delicious, the games were fun, Tabby the LCC Comfort Dog had a great time, and the prizes seemed to never stop.  Congratulations to the Kapusniak and Przybylski families for each winning $750 towards their tuition.  About $4,700 was earned which will be used towards improvements for St. John's.  We hope to be back in the warm sunshine next year at Linne Woods the first week of June.  Plan to join us!!!

Thank you St. John's supporters! Your donation is a great opportunity to show your support for St. John's and also to connect with us - we are your grateful customers!

Please show your support for our business sponsors. Make sure you say "thanks" on behalf of St. John's when you patronize our supporters.

2014 Picnic supporters

God gave us fantastic weather for our Picnic on June 1st, with 216 enjoying outdoor worship. Well over 250 church and school families attended throughout the day, along with some prospective school families, alumni and friends. Many, many walked away with prizes they won from the 75 buckets, 10 Grand Raffles, Guess the Weight of the Watermelon, Guess the Quantity, Children’s Games, Ice Cream Eating Contest, Water Balloon Toss, and the Horseshoe and Bags Tournaments. Laura Weith, and the Class of 2015 served delicious food, the children enjoyed romping in the woods, and the adults relaxed and socialized. In addition to all of the fun, $3,000 was made, some of which will be used to purchase much needed new chairs for the Fellowship Room and gym. Couldn’t make it this year? Then make sure you mark your calendar right now for June 7, 2015!


A huge thank you to all of our supporters!
