Join us on Hospitality Sunday for an All Church Potluck Brunch in Goethe Hall. Sign up below to bring an item for the potluck or to make a donation. Please bring food to Goethe Hall by 10:00 am on September 21.
The “Food for Food” sharing table is a place for people to bring on Sundays their excess fruits and veggies from their home gardens for others to take home and enjoy. People taking food are asked to leave a donation. Money raised will go to a local shelter or food closet.
Want to volunteer at the table? Contact Linda Barth (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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.
“While Sacramento brands itself as the center of the farm-to-fork movement, parishioners at the midtown church I attend have similarly reconnected to the agricultural roots of the center of our worship and communal life, the sacramental wine.”
