The message at St. John’s is simple: We preach Christ and Him crucified. In every Divine Service, Christ is with us, offering grace and forgiveness where He promises they’ll be: in His Word and in His Sacraments.

We welcome you to join us.

“[Jesus] in effect says, ‘Trust me. Go. Your son lives. Go. Salvation has been accomplished. Go.’ That’s what creates the trust that is saving faith, isn’t it? Just a word. A word that’s a promise.”

      Pastor Bruss from The 21st Sunday after Trinity

This is the classic “reversal story,” as marginalized outsiders, nobodies are invited to fill the wedding hall and enjoy the King‘s favor. It reminds me of us gathered here. For as I look around this congregation, there is no superior worldly wisdom here. There is no great scientific knowledge, there aren‘t any great political movers and shakers. Not here. I see nothing but sojourners, the poor, the blind, halt, and lame‐fringe people of society. But you, O blessed fringe, having no right, and no entitlement to be in the wedding hall, you are here. And why is that? Because servants of the Great King have invited you to come; insisted you come. And you did‐with astonishment and in great joy.
