Scholarship Team

The Scholarship Committee of St. John’s was established to acknowledge one or more graduating high school students who exhibit academic excellence, faithful membership, and excellent service to St. John’s and the greater community. It is a hope of the congregation that youth develop a strong ethic of service while being an active member of St. John’s and embrace service as a way of life in their future endeavors.
Award recipients must be accepted by a college or university and be recommended by a St. John’s member (non-family) who is familiar with the applicant’s record of service. The 2018 Scholarship Recipients were Sam Immenschuh, Hanna Christensen, Katie Reisdorf, and Karina Sande.  These young women were awarded the scholarship and their names were added to a plaque listing all of St. John’s previous scholarship recipients. The plaque can be found on the hallway wall outside of Friendship Hall.  If you have any questions about our Scholarship Team, please contact Joanne Gladden.


Sunday School

At St. John’s we believe that young people are vital members of our community.  Just like adults, children and youth need opportunities to worship, grow in faith, enjoy fellowship, and reach out in service to others.  Because we know how important parents and other caring adults are to the faith development of young people, our programs emphasize building relationships between faithful and capable adults and growing in faith together.  If you have questions or need more information about how to get involved, please contact Pastor Paul Markquart or Jen Kooistra, Director of Youth, Family and Education Ministries.
