Join us as we celebrate the power of change in the church! On Reformation Sunday we give thanks for the sixteenth-century Reformation which renewed the church of that time, and we will also pray for the unification of the church today. Wear red and join us for festival worship!
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.
Join us on Sunday mornings during the Sunday School hour (10:15 am) as we explore the Gospel of John. Bob Huckfeldt will lead this “Book of Faith” study on a most beloved gospel for eight weeks. Please contact the church office, or use the form below, to let us know you are interested in participating so we know how many participant guides to order. Everyone is welcome!
On Saturday, November 1 at 5:00 pm we will gather to remember all the saints — the baptized people of God both living and dead.
Join us as we welcome the new saints among us with a celebration of baptism and affirmation of baptism. And be comforted in God’s love as we remember those who have died. Save the date for a new way of observing All Saints Day.
