St. John Ev. Lutheran Church of Whitewater welcomes the community to attend its special worship service observing the Ascension of the Lord Jesus. The service will be held on Thursday, May 13, at 6:30 p.m. at the church, which is located at 116 South Church Street in Whitewater. Rev. James Rath, who is serving as vacancy pastor at St. John since the retirement of Pastor Jon Rossman, will conduct the service.
