We gather around the cross together regularly in worship and fellowship.
“For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
The people gathered are the church. From the Lutheran perspective, going to the Lord's house is the high point of the Christian's week. There, we hear God's Word proclaimed, receive forgiveness, and experience fellowship with other Christians. Additionally, God strengthens us through His Sacraments for life in the world. In the Divine Service, God is the One doing the serving: He gives, and we receive in faith. We offer prayers of thanksgiving, hymns of praise, and petitions for God's intervention in our lives and in our world.
Whether in-person or online, members and guests are welcomed and given spiritual nourishment from the time that they enter the facility to the time that they leave. We beautify the Sanctuary every week and seasonally to enhance the worship experience and to magnify the Lord. We also go beyond the doors of the building to sustain and enrich the spiritual lives of congregants who are home bound or hospitalized.
Music plays an important role in our congregation's worship life. We encourage all who join us to praise the Lord in song, Sacrament, Word, prayer, and fellowship. Our Sunday services resound with the sound of the pipe organ, bell choir, and choir. We enjoy use of the worship settings which celebrate the liturgies of Church from ancient and Reformation times alongside more recent settings, reflecting movement through the seasons of the church year. We offer midweek services during Advent (before Christmas) and Lent (before Holy Week and Easter) as we prepare for and remember God's work in our lives.
St. John's is an active congregation, with many groups for you to join and enjoy the gift of fellowship and companionship with others.
Join us in worship and fellowship, receiving God's good gifts, and experiencing the transformation of life that comes though Christ Jesus alone!
