Retreat – Answering God’s Call

Who should attend?
The retreat is open to all; however, it is specifically geared for High School or young college students who have been identified by their pastor or congregation as someone who exhibits the gifts for ordained ministry.

Why you should attend?
Did you know that most pastors have not had a lightning strike like Martin Luther or a blinding experience like the Apostle Paul when it came time to discern a call to ministry? Discerning God’s call to go into the ministry of Word and Sacrament is a journey and begins for people in a variety of ways. Yes! Every disciple, just like you, is called through the waters of Holy Baptism to be about worship and service to our Lord. Yet, God does call and set apart some of his disciples to serve him vocationally in the area of Word and Sacrament ministry.

Perhaps you’ve not even considered a call to ministry, like being a Pastor, as a possibility for your future. YOU have been identified as someone who may have gifts for serving our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ as a pastor in His Church!
This gathering will be a time to hear how God is calling; how to listen to his call; begin to prayerfully reflect on how God wants you to use your gifts to His glory!

Just come! Come and hear! Come and learn! Come and discern!

NALC Disaster Response

During Hurricane season, the disaster relief warehouse at St. John’s Statesville was emptied three times sending relief supplies to New Bern, NC, Wilmington NC, and Panama City, Fl. We are now in the process of preparing for the next catastrophe. The goal is to have 250 layettes, 500 school kits, 1000 quilts, 1000 flood buckets with Bibles and 1000 health kits at both the St. John’s Statesville warehouse and the Advent King’s Mountain warehouse. The King’s Mountain location is now ready to receive supplies. This is a massive effort that receives help from NALC churches from around the country.

St. John’s currently has about an eighth of our goal on hand. We know there will be more storms next fall and flooding in the spring. Our goal is to be prepared when called upon. Congregations of the Carolinas Mission District are asked to continue gather disaster relief supplies as they are able. Anyone with questions may contact Pastor Ernie Sheldon, our mission district Disaster Relief Coordinator.
