Septmeber 19th & 20th

The parable we hear this coming Sunday might strike church-goers as troubling: what, shouldn’t we get paid more if we work longer hours?! The last shall be first? Come to worship, to meditate on the good news found in this story and to receive the meal of God’s mercy.

Here are the downloads for the week:

September 19th & 20th Announcements -  9:00 AM Worship Folder

"At Home with Jesus" 

We will have our first Online Sunday School video for preschool through 5th graders posted at 10:30 AM HERE and Facebook on Sunday, September 20th! Join us each week for a new video of songs, lessons, and activities!

If you want to share your At Home Sunday School experience with us, submit photos HERE or tag us on Facebook with @St. John Lutheran Church ELCA Beatrice, NE


If you would like to help, we need people to read the Bible stories or demonstrate the activity for the lesson. A Sign-up Genius has been created where you can choose the lesson you would like to help with. After signing up, Heidi will send you all the information you need. You can make the video yourself or we can schedule a time for you to come in and we will help you!

Please sign up today!



Welcome back!

We will have in-building worship on Sundays at our 9:00 AM service.

Please be safe when considering the best worship option for yourself and your families - joining us in the building will mean a new normal as far as how services are conducted. Please read the summary and protocols we will be following before joining us in person.
