Lutheran Disaster Response is actively networking with partners such as The Lutheran World Federation (LWF), Lutheran World Relief, and the ACT Alliance who are already on the ground in Nepal. LWF’s office in Kathmandu escaped the worst of the impact of the quake and has launched a large scale emergency response.
How can we help?
As you pray this week, include the men and women of Lutheran Disaster Response and the people of Nepal in your prayers:
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.
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.
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.
Come explore the 2nd century church and learn what it means to Follow the Lamb! This exciting week will transport us to ancient Rome where we will learn about early Christians and why their church and ours are so much alike. Each day explores a different part of our church year from Advent to Pentecost, and we will make some new friends along the way. Kids will learn about scripture and the church through games, crafts, music and more!
Our LIVING STONES Capital Campaign goal is bold: to totally eliminate the debt incurred for the beautiful restoration of our sanctuary. It is the biggest campaign this church has ever taken on. A year ago on Palm Sunday, we came together as a community and made our pledges to the LIVING STONES Capital Campaign. We worshipped together, brunched together, and we raised 272 pledges for $2.16 million to be paid by our 150th anniversary in December 2017.
