Sunday Mornings @ 10:30
What to Expect
As Lutherans, we do have a structure to our service, or “Liturgy”. But we know that not everyone is familiar with this structure, so everything is described in the bulletin! Even if it feels a little unfamiliar at first, our service is set up in a way that is both accessible and honors tradition.
You can expect the service to be about an hour long, with communion on the first Sunday of every month (and all who believe in Christ are welcome to celebrate communion). Sometimes we have celebrations mixed in the service such as a baptism or first communion, and these are opportunities for you to see how we celebrate life’s events within our community.
Worried about being new to church? We will welcome you in the way YOU want to be welcomed. If you want to engage fully right away, we will celebrate your bravery. If you are more timid and need some time to warm up, we won’t push you to participate more than you are ready. But know that here at St. John’s, we truly want you to feel welcome and appreciated just by your presence.
Second Sunday Contemporary Service
What is a Contemporary Service?
Our contemporary services use a variety of instruments including guitars, piano, and percussion to accompany praise songs. It is an accessible service that is relaxed and open, where we can sing and find fellowship together in the evening. Rather than a traditional sermon, we will use a contemplative style discussion around a particular theme or topic, led by the pastor. It is a time to welcome questions and find new information. But don’t worry – it is okay to just listen!
Worried about “fitting in”?
No matter your faith tradition, this contemporary community service is approachable, engaging, and ecumenical. We welcome all friends and visitors to worship with us.
