St. John Lutheran Church of Woodbury members deliver a send-off prayer Jan. 21, 2018, for Kayla Hoem, an outreach missionary who will be working in Spain.

Hoem and Sarah Kanoy, a medical missionary now working in Kenya, were officially "adopted" by the congregation. This will provide them with prayerful and financial support.

The church celebrates its 150-year anniversary in 2018.
