If you're new to St. John's and aren't sure what to expect on Sunday morning, we've left answers to a few basic questions here to make you feel more comfortable. If you have any other questions or concerns about what Sunday mornings at St. John's look like, please contact us!
What is your service like?
Our main order of worship we follow is called the "Divine Service." It is called that not only because we are serving "the Divine," but primarily because in worship "the Divine" is serving us. Even the word "liturgy" means "service."
When we gather to hear God's Word and receive the body and blood of Christ, God comes to us and blesses us with all the blessings that flow from the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
If using a hymnal and following an order of service is unfamiliar to you, we invite you to simply find a seat and observe. Feel free to participate as much or as little as you wish.
What should I wear?
Here at St. John's, we believe that when we gather together for Divine Service, God truly comes and speaks to us through his Word read aloud and preached. We also believe the God-man, Jesus Christ, is present to feed us his body and blood in the Lord's Supper.
Because of this, we at St. John's dress differently than we would to go out to a cook out with friends or to watch a sporting event. Although there is variance depending on the time of year, generally, we wear more formal attire.
All this means is that visitors are invited to wear their nicer clothing and dress modestly. This will look differently depending on your own situation in life. We welcome all who come to worship God with us, regardless of what your "Sunday's best" might look like!
