Service in the Community
Braille Center Work - Tuesdays at 9 am, and again following lunch and the exercise class, 1-3 pm, if there are enough volunteers. St. John’s has been assigned production of the books of Daniel and Ezekiel; each Tuesday a team of congregational members will gather in the Fellowship Hall to work on this. Braille materials produced here will be a blessing to blind people around the world. The co-leaders will be glad to explain the process to you. For more information, see Lutheran Braille Workers.
