Worship

The Story of Jesus: from Birth to Death to Life”

Sermon and Adult Ed

In weekend Worship Services and mid-week Bible Studies, we are journeying chronologically through the life of Jesus Christ – his miraculous birth, his public ministry of preaching and healing, his death, resurrection, and ascension, and his continued presence with his disciples. We’re exploring the Gospel narratives of his life, the context of his ministry, and how his teaching and example continue to transform our lives and this world.

“The Story of Jesus” Adult Education classes take place every Wednesday at 9 am; repeated on Thursdays at 7 pm. All are welcome as we learn and grow together in our relationship with the Savior of the world!

Saturday Night Light Service

Our Saturday Night Light Service is held every Saturday afternoon from 4 pm to 4:45 pm. This service includes contemporary Christian music, Scripture reading and sermon, lighting candles in prayer around the Cross, and Communion.

Traditional Worship

Our 9:00 am Traditional Worship centers in the Lutheran liturgy. This service includes hymns, prayers, Scripture readings, sermon,  wonderful musical offerings, and Communion.

Contemporary Worship

Our 11 am Worship Service features a more contemporary liturgy with the emphasis on uplifting music, Scripture readings, prayers, sermon, and Communion. The service features a band with outstanding musical offerings each week.

Traditional Worship
Mar 24 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Traditional worship at 9:00 AM is a liturgically responsive worship service, based on the Bible and the Evangelical Lutheran Worship hymnal. St. John’s talented Patrick Karst accompanies this service on organ and keyboard and Laura Stave provides her beautiful voice as cantor and soloist. This service is formal, yet relaxed, allowing time for prayer and reflection, with communion each Sunday.

St. John’s choir, directed by Laura Stave, also provides special music on occasion.

Praise Worship
Mar 24 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Our 11:00 AM Worship is a “lighter” liturgy than the 9:00 AM service. The service’s jazz and praise beat encourages participation from the worshipers and although we mainly sing contemporary praise songs, we don’t neglect beloved hymns. The Praise team is directed by Bob Corwin and is comprised of Bob Corwin, pianist, Danny Flahive, bass fiddle, and Ron Mercier on the drums. Samantha Corwin and Laura Stave are the lead singers whose rhythmic harmony strengthens participation. These talented women also sing solos and duets each Sunday.

Lessons, sermons and announcements are the same at both services with Holy Communion every Sunday.
