What is the ELCA?

The ELCA – or Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – is the national religious body to which St. John’s belongs. Visit the ELCA website for more information about this affiliation of Lutherans in the USA.


What do Lutherans believe?

Lutherans believe in the Triune God who is loving, forgiving, and nurturing. We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who died to free us from our sins. And we believe in the Holy Spirit who is active in our lives bringing inspiration and transformation to each of us. For more about what Lutherans believe, take a look at the Statements of Belief of the ELCA.


Is Communion open to everyone?

Yes. We believe that the gifts of God are free. We commune by intinction most of the time. You will be handed bread and will dip it into the cup. The red liquid is wine; the clear liquid is grape juice. To read more about the Sacrament of Communion, visit our Baptism & Holy Communion page.

Bible-reading programs in vogue, but fewer Americans overall reading Scripture

By Anita Creamer | Wednesday, Apr. 16, 2014 – 12:00 am | sacbee.org

In their quest to read the Bible cover to cover in three months’ time, 84 people at St. John’s Lutheran Church in midtown Sacramento have pored over about a quarter of the Bible so far. It’s been an eye-opener: The violence – the sheer level of bloodshed in the Old Testament – has taken many of them by surprise.

Rwanda: Our Lenten Offering in Two Parts

Part 1: A Delegation to Rwanda

Pr. Leslie Welton and Sierra Dwyer-Voss are representing St. John’s on a trip to Rwanda this summer. They will be participating in the Girls Faith Encounter for young women at the Lutheran School in Rwanda. They will be paired with young women from Rwanda, meet influential female leaders, visit a women’s cooperative, go on a safari, engage with local community members, and explore what mission means. Your offering will help to make their trips possible.
