YOUR FIRST VISIT

Services are held every Sunday at 8:00 and 10:30 AM and every Thursday at 6:30 PM (Wednesdays at 3:30 & 6:30 PM during Lent). Summer Worship Times: 9:00 AM
Bible Study and Sunday School for 3-Year-Olds through 6th Grade are held every

What’s the Service Like?
Worship at St. John’s is liturgical in nature. That means that it follows a pattern for worship that has been used by the Christian church for thousands of years. You can expect that there will be hymns and songs, prayers, readings from God's Word, and a sermon.
Our one hour services are conveniently printed out in a service folder so that it's easy to follow along.
What about our Kids?
Kids of all ages are welcome at St. John’s. We encourage children and their parents to grow in faith together as they hear God's Word and sing his praise (and if your kids make a little bit of noise, don't sweat it! We're just glad they're with us). Ask an usher for children’s activity bags or for a children’s bulletin (specially designed for today’s service). We also have two nursery rooms available - should you need to step out with your child.
Where do I sit?
Feel free to sit wherever you'd like; there's no assigned seating. Our ushers will assist you if you need help finding a seat.
What should I wear?
There's no dress code! Come as you are. We aren't worried about what you're wearing.
What parking is available?
St. John’s offers both street parking (wheelchair accessible with no stairs) and a parking lot behind the church with a ramp entrance (SE entrance). When entering from the parking lot, you are welcome to use the stairs or an elevator to reach the church sanctuary. Handicapped parking and visitor parking are available in the parking lot.
Is the Lord’s Supper/Holy Communion celebrated?
Yes, we celebrate the Lord’s Supper every 2nd and 4th Sundays (and the Thursdays before). At St. John’s, we believe that in the Lord’s Supper, along with the bread and wine, we miraculously receive the real body and blood of Christ for the forgiveness of sins. Scripture connects a warning with this miracle: “Anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself” (1 Corinthians 11:29). Therefore, in light of Scripture’s warning, if you are not familiar with the teaching of the real presence of Christ’s body and blood, we ask that you speak with one of the pastors before taking the Lord’s Supper. We thank you for your consideration and we greatly look forward to celebrating the Lord’s Supper with you.
