Companion Synod of Northwest Ohio Synod






How does the church in Serbia make Christ known?

  • After 50 years under Communist rule these fellow Christians are learning a way to live with freedoms they never had. The popular women's retreat in November is a Bible study and faith-building experience open to all.
  • Jasmina Kotas came to St John's at the Bay Lutheran Church this summer to share the good news of Jesus.
  • Pastor Luka Ilic has been sharing his stories with fellow seminarians as he pursues a Doctor of Theology degree in Philadelphia.
