FORGIVENESS MESSAGE

To help you with the challenge we are offering special messages on the following topics.

EASTER
SUNDAY

APRIL 1

Easter is the most important celebration in the Christian year. Christians from around the world will gather in tiny country churches, in great medieval cathedrals and everything in-between to celebrate this world changing and life changing event of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Join us at St. John’s, as, in spirit, we join those around the world. An Easter Egg Hunt for the kids and refreshments for all will follow the service.

FORGIVING
OTHERS

APRIL 8

Minor annoyances sure, but when someone really hurts you is it really possible to forgive? What if someone isn’t accessible or even alive? Can I still forgive them? Explore these important questions and more on April 8.

FORGIVING YOURSELF

APRIL 15

Forgiving the other person is easier for some people. After all, you get to extend grace to someone else and give them a break. But forgiving yourself? Yikes. How do you stop beating yourself up over something? Explore these questions and more on April 15.

FORGIVING
GOD

APRIL 22

Ok. Forgiving someone else. Check. Forgiving myself. Check. Forgiving God? How can we forgive God? I mean, doesn’t God forgive us? What about those times it seems that God has failed us? Then what? Explore these questions and more on April 22.

Services start at 10:00 am every Sunday morning and are followed by refreshments.

COME AS YOU ARE

We welcome you to St. John’s Episcopal Church in historic downtown Dubuque, Iowa. At St. John’s, “Doubts are ok, questions are welcome, please, come as you are.” We welcome you no matter who you are, where you come from, or why you are here. We are God’s people and this is God’s holy place with its doors wide open to love and serve the Lord and you.

Doubts okay.
Questions welcome.
Please, come as you are.
