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.

On the night of the resurrection Jesus appeared to His fearful disciples, of which Thomas either left early or was not present at all. Later, when the disciples told him about it, Thomas didn’t believe them. Yet on Sunday of the following week, Jesus showed up again, and this time Thomas was there. Words cannot express Thomas’ emotion. He only offers his deepest thought: “My Lord and my God.”
All the pieties of this day are nothing if there is not also faith. All the decencies observed, Hallelujahs sung are nothing without trust in His Word.
The Vigil of Easter brings a conclusion to the sacred Triduum, ushering in the celebration of the Resurrection of our Lord. By morning, the whole world will know of an open, empty tomb. But you are here tonight…on the most holy of all nights—watching and waiting. This is the night when the chains of Death are broken forever and Light breaks out from the darkness of the grave.
