It is good to give thanks to God at any time, but over the Thanksgiving holiday, St. John’s hosts two services:
Wednesday, Nov 27, 6:30 pm (with Holy Communion)
Thursday, Nov 28, 9:00 am (with Holy Communion)
You can learn more about what our worship services are like at our visitors page. We look forward to rejoicing with you in God’s grace!
During the Advent season, we focus on the coming of Christ - first humbly, as a child, but also one day triumphantly, as our risen Lord. Our series of three midweek Advent services are comparatively brief, meditative, and Christ-focused. Here are the times you can join us:
Wednesday, Dec 4, 6:30 pm
Wednesday, Dec 11, 6:30 pm
Wednesday, Dec 18, 6:30 pm
There’s something about home. Home is where you can relax, knowing the people there will love you, even with your quirks and flaws, where you can feel safe in a world that is so often cold and dangerous. Jesus intended for his church to to be a home, a place where we gather with Christian family and enjoy all the blessings he gives us.
On October 20th, we are celebrating Welcome Home Sunday. We will talk about the importance of having the support of a Christian community. One major goal: we want to have 100% of our members in attendance. Let’s pack the house, and see what it looks like when every member comes together. And, as always, guests are welcome, too. Here is what our schedule will look like:
October 17 No Thursday Evening Service
October 20 8:00 AM Sunday School and Adult Bible Class
9:30 AM Welcome Home Worship Service
11:00 AM Church Potluck Dinner
Please do everything possible to set that date aside so you can join your brothers and sisters in Christ. It would be great to see you there!
This year’s church picnic will come on the heels of Return to Wittenberg’s annual conference themed From Age to Age. After our 10:30 service on Sunday, July 28, members and visitors alike are invited to spill out onto our shady front lawn, where they can enjoy plenty of food, games, conversation, bounce houses, and more.
St. John’s is excited to host Return to Wittenberg’s third annual conference on July 27 & 28. This year’s theme is From Age to Age, an exploration of the continuity between Lutheran confession and practice throughout history.
Join us on Saturday, July 27 for Matins and Vespers worship, with multiple presentations in between. Then, return on Sunday morning for a keynote presentation and breakfast, followed by closing divine service at 10:30. And stay for the St. John’s church picnic afterwards!
