PB&J – Planting Belief and Joy

So Excited to Announce a brand new group starting Sunday, September 20, 2015!!!! We are “Planting Belief and Joy,” with relevant presentations, engaging conversations, and FUN!




















Below is a short biography of Carol Felderman, our new administrator:




First St. John Dayschool has hired me as the new administrator. I was born and raised here in East Toledo. I attended the Oregon Public Schools. From there I went on to The Ohio State University and graduated from Concordia University, Seward, Nebraska. I have spent 25 years teaching in Lutheran Schools, during which time I also served as an Administrator at Trinity Lutheran Church and School in Holly Hill, Florida and St. Paul’s Lutheran Church and School in Roseburg, Oregon. I have taught for the Department of Defense Schools in Germany.

I enjoy traveling for fun (just about anywhere), going on volksmarches (USA, Germany, and France) for exercise, and reading to relax. To prepare my retirement skills, I have taken up quilting and crocheting. I am married to Jeff Felderman from Bellevue, Iowa, whom I met while teaching in Hawaii. He is finishing his job in Virginia Beach and will join me later this fall.

I look forward to working and worshiping with all of you here at First St. John’s!

In Christ,

Carol Felderman
