We call our worship at St. John's the "Divine Service." It's the english interpretation of our German heritage, "Gottesdienst," which literally translates as, "God's Service." We truly believe that every Sunday gathering around Word and Sacrament is God's service to us, through which He gives Himself to us in His means of grace. In these means of grace--Holy Baptism and the Lord's Supper--are we washed pure, forgiven, and made right with God that we may thank, praise, serve, and obey Him. He does all this for us poor, miserable sinners, all out of
Fatherly divine goodness and mercy for us, His beloved children.
LITURGICAL BIBLICAL WORSHIP
St. John's is proud of the liturgical heritage that has been passed down by many of our loved ones through the generations who sought to preserve the reverence, sacredness, and catechetical nature of worship.
Worship at St. John's is as easy as following along in our hymnal, the Lutheran Service Book.
We also offer a weekly bulletin as a companion to the hymnal in which you'll find:
The Hymns, The Readings, and the Propers (Introit and Gradual) for the day.
The Hymns: Sacred hymns are carefully selected from the hymnal to complement the lessons drawn from the readings.
The Readings: The Readings are selected from the historic Lectionary, which assigns the lessons for each week.
