Worship Services

Worship services at St. John’s are historic and liturgical. We follow an order of service that has remained generally intact since about the third century.

Holy Communion is offered every week at St. John’s. It is one of the means by which Jesus Christ grants forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation to sinners. Since we intend to administer this sacrament in proper accordance with the Word of God, we only commune those within our spiritual fellowship. Our Pastor will be happy to talk with you if you have any further questions.

Offerings

The offerings we collect during worship support the work of the Lord’s church here and around the world. They are a cheerful and generous expression of faith in Jesus Christ. Your offering is welcome, but you are by no means obligated to give.

Children

The gospel of Jesus Christ is for everyone in the family, from littlest to oldest; children are always welcome at church. However, should you feel the need to take small children out of the service, there is a Parents’ Room next to the sanctuary entrance with a changing table, comfortable furniture, and children’s books and toys. The room is also equipped with a speaker and a window to the sanctuary, so parents and children can see and hear the worship service as it happens.

Membership

If you are interested in becoming a member at St. John’s, please speak with Pastor Reckzin.  He is happy to answer your questions, and, if need be, guide you through a membership class.
