A women's Bible study on the Gospel of Mark will meet at 6:30 p.m. alternate Wednesdays beginning Jan. 24 in the lounge at Jehovah Lutheran Church, 1566 Thomas Avenue, St. Paul.

The basis for the sessions will be "The Gospel of Mark: The Jesus We’re Aching For" by Christian author Lisa Harper.

According to promotional material for the book, Mark "unveils a Jesus of unparalleled power and authority but also a Jesus of humility and love. And while this Jesus invites each of us into a greater story through His teachings, He demands we come as active participants. We must acknowledge Him, seek salvation in Him, and follow Him wherever He leads."

Sessions are free. Refreshments are provided. All are welcome.

Jehovah Lutheran Church (JLC) and the Center for Employment and Education Development Services (CEEDS) hosted refugees from several countries at a Clothing Distribution on Nov 25 at the church.

CEEDS has its office and clothing room at the church. The Rev. Dr. Justin Byakweli and his helpers from both JLC and CEEDS welcomed some 60 refugees to the event. Each person left with a large bag of warm clothing/bedding. Since the beginning of these clothing distributions 300 + refugees have received clothing, household goods and bedding. Please see more photos of the distribution at the neighborhood page.



During winter the need for warm clothing continues as the weather in Minnesota is much colder than what the refugees have experienced “back home.” Please pass the word around to anyone you know who may have children/teen/adult warm sweaters, jackets, coats, scarves, hats, gloves, boots to share.

Items may be brought to the Donation Center at Jehovah Lutheran Church, 1566 Thomas Ave., before or after the Sunday worship (which begins at 10:15 a.m.) or by appointment during the week. Call the church office at 651-644- 1421. The Donation Center has receipt slips for your donation and a brochure about CEEDS for you to take.
