October 24th & 25th

Over the centuries, Lutherans have kept a special day to thank God for the freedom that the word of God grants to believers and to pray that with the help of God’s Spirit, the church will be continually reformed and renewed. You are invited to worship with us on this Reformation Sunday, in praise and petition to God for the ongoing health of the church.

Here are the downloads for the week:

"At Home with Jesus" 

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

Story Bibles are available for families with children in preschool – 2nd grade. Stop by the church to pick one up!

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!



Schedule Update

We are moving ALL of our services into the Sanctuary starting Saturday, October 31st. Along with indoor seating, all services will be streamed LIVE on Facebook and transmitted over our short-range radio so you can still tune in from the parking lot.

Please be safe when considering the best worship option for yourself and your families. Please read the summary and protocols we will be following before joining us in person.
