Susan Sochowski Family

At our request, Mark has put together a list of concrete and financial ways to help the family as they adjust to a new normal after Susan's stroke. As she continues to recover at home, Susan and the family can use everything from help cleaning the garage to supportive notes and cards to gift cards to help cover expenses.  

A list is available in the back of church. For more information, email stjohnlutheranruma@gmail.com.

Instruments of Suffering,

Instruments of Grace!

Lenten Series 2024

How can a bad situation be used for good? The Bible illustrates how God does that very thing all the time. This year for our Lenten Midweek series we will consider how God used horrific instruments of torture to give to us the Gift of His Grace; the Sacrifice of His Son for our salvation. The only thing that makes this hard to understand is the fact that we in our sins contributed in being the cause of His suffering. That is the depth of the Love of God for us!

Please join us on Wednesdays to reflect

on that Love that God has for us!
