Worship Services

We worship on Sunday mornings at 9:00 AM.  Our worship services follow an order of worship. We use the Lutheran Service Book (LSB).  We also use Ceative Worship (CW). The  parts of worship are more focused in following the theme for the day. The LSB services are more general. We do join together in receiving our Lord's Supper on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month. 

 

Depending on how Covid protocols continue, we seek to re-start doing outdoor worship and Church picnics in the summer months of June, July, and August, weather permitting.  Outdoor Services will begin at 9:00 AM and a potluck picnic will follow.  Please feel welcome to join us on these special celebration days!

About the Lord's Supper

At St. John’s Lutheran Church, the Lord’s Supper is celebrated in the confession and glad confidence that, as our Lord did, He gives into our mouths not only bread and wine, his very body and blood, to eat and to drink for forgiveness of sins and to strengthen our union with him and one another. Our Lord invites to his table those who trust his words, repent of all sin, and set aside a refusal to forgive and love as he forgives and loves us. 

 

Because Holy Communion is a unified confession of the faith which is shared at this altar, and because those who eat and drink our Lord’s body and blood unworthily do so to their great harm, any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who hold a confession of faith differing from that of this congregation, and yet desire to receive the sacrament, we ask that before participating you would first to speak with the pastor, an elder, or an usher. Thanks! We care and seek you being blessed.

 

Children are welcome to come forward and receive a blessing. For people with special dietary considerations there is a center ring of each communion tray which contains grape juice. Gluten free wafers are available upon request.
