DIVINE SERVICE — until the danger of COVID–19 has passed, use the link below to schedule which Service you will attend or call the Church Office.
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.Visitor Information

What’s the point of obsessing over the spoils of the future? This eternal kingdom of God that Jesus Christ won for you by His own death—it already belongs to you. You became a citizen of it and got your citizenship papers in your Baptism when you were baptized into Christ. Your citizenship is constantly being re-upped, as it were, in the Holy Church, where God richly and daily forgives you all your sins and gives you the meal of His Son’s Body and Blood. The eternity and paradise that are written on your heart have been met and satisfied. Completely.
We hear the account of the ten lepers twice every year—once on the 14th Sunday after Trinity and the other, on Thanksgiving morn. Mercy is the cry of Christ’s Church. And our response to mercy shown to us? We offer our thanks, just as one of the ten did.
The man lying there half‐dead on the side of the road is Adam and Abraham and David and the three young men and Simeon. It’s the smart‐aleck Jew who wants to earn heaven. And it’s you.
