US FOR WORSHIP!
A Spoken Service of Communion at 8 AM
A Sung Service of Communion at 10:30 AM
Lenten Worship Opportunities
Every Wednesday during Lent, services
will be held at 7:00PM, preceded by "Soup'er Supper" at
Lenten Midweek Evening Vespers
Through psalmody and plainsong, the
St. John Choir will bring the hauntingly beautiful music of Vespers
to life. Vespers services are a wonderful opportunity for you to
quietly and faithfully reflect on your day.
As part of our Lenten Midweek series,
Vespers will be sung every Wednesday night during the 7PM service.
Lent several changes are observed. The crosses are draped in black
to symbolize that what is now a sign of victory, began as an instrument
of punishment and death. In addition, flowers do not adorn the
altar until the celebration of the resurrection. These changes
suggest that Lent is a time of austerity, purification and spiritual
Lutherans are sinners... but we are forgiven. We believe that it is God acting
for and in us that brings forgiveness.
Lutherans are evangelical... and as forgiven people reach out to share the
message of God's grace. We welcome others to worship and work with us.
Lutherans are hopeful people. We believe that with God, anything is possible.
We invite others who are not now active in Christian communions to join us in
the challenges which a trouble-filled world presents, and to rejoice with us in
the promises with which a loving God greets us.
