What is a Lutheran?

We are Christians, we accept Jesus as God’s son, our risen Savior and Redeemer who believe:

  • We are saved by the grace of God alone.
  • We are saved through faith alone.
  • We believe in the Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Worship

God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.   (John 4:24)

As Lutherans we gather together in worship to hear the Word of God and celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion. We follow a traditional Lutheran service with time-honored liturgy, but great contemporary significance. Communion, hymns, beautiful music, and a hopeful message send us week after week to share Christ’s mission of grace for the world.

  • Worship with Holy Communion is celebrated every Saturday evening at 5:30 PM
  • We offer two Sunday morning services at 8:00 AM and 10:45 AM. Holy Communion is celebrated on the first and third Sunday of each month. (In the summer, Memorial Day through Labor Day there is only one Sunday morning worship service at 9:00 AM)
  • Sunday School for All Ages on Sunday mornings at 9:15 AM (no Sunday School during the summer)
    St. John’s invites all congregants to get involved in worship!

Baptism

In Baptism, God frees us from sin and death, seals us with the Holy Spirit, and marks us with the cross of Christ forever. We recognize one Baptism: God’s promise we are His, and forever part of Him. As Lutherans, we baptize children and adults. Baptism classes are held monthly. During the class, the meaning and importance of Baptism are presented and any questions concerning the ceremony or sponsorship are addressed.
