VBS
Vacation Bible School is a joint effort between St. John Lutheran Church, St. Paul Lutheran Church and Grace Lutheran Church, rotating church facilities every year.  We always look forward to the opportunity to share God and Jesus' story to children in our community.
2018 Vacation Bible School wrapped up the night of June 9th with a program followed by snacks and fellowship.  49 students heard the Good News about Jesus and also raised money for Helping Hands, which will help children in need who attend Dieterich schools by supplying weekend meals during the school year.
 
Kid's Carnival
Every fall we have a carnival for the kids, with small games, food, snacks, and prizes.  Our 2017 carnival was held on September 10th following church service. Proceeds went to benefit the local Fort Wayne Seminary Student Norlyn Bartens.
