The Annual St. John's Lutheran Church Oktoberfest returns on Sunday, September 15th, 2013, with Polka Services where the service music is all set to polka tunes, at 8 and 10:30am. All the words are in English, and you'll recognize all the polka tunes, so sing along! A polka band will play the music and the adult choir will do a polka praise anthem.
Then, step outside to the shelter behind the Church at 6614 W. Old Smithville Road in Bartonville for Oktoberfest. Donations are accepted for lunch featuring grilled brats, kraut, beverages and homemade desserts, plus live polka music by the Rathskeller Brummers, folk dancing featuring The Peoria Volkstanzer and the Kinder Troup, and Bavarian Alpin Horns.
All are welcome. For more information, call Don Bauer, Director of Music, at (309) 697-5762 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
