Services Return to Church!

            Please join us every Sunday morning for three worship opportunities. Our early traditional service has returned to the sanctuary at 7:45 a.m., and our NewSong contemporary service has returned to the fellowship hall at 10:15 a.m. Please wear a mask and follow social distancing guidelines, and masks are available at the entrance for those who need one. If you prefer to worship from home, our 7:45 a.m. service will be live streamed on our Facebook page and then made available in the app. If you prefer to worship from home and are not receiving the order of worship via email, please contact the church office to be added to the list.

Lectionary Bible Study 

We meet each week to sift through the scripture passages for the upcoming Sunday sermon. You will gain a deeper understanding of the Word, Lutheran theology and preach as Pastor Douglas teaches the class. This is a wonderful way to dive into the Scriptures before hearing the sermon.

  • Mondays @ 6 pm.
  • Starts November 30th.

Congregational Prayer Group

They Raised Their Voices Together in Prayer to God. (Acts 4:24)

Throughout the Book of Acts we read how amazing healings, conversions, rescues and testimonies happen for the Church. These miracles of THE Spirit happen because the people of Jesus relied upon prayer.

We are recruiting people to join together to ask the LORD to empower the ministry of St. John’s.

We are praying the Holy Spirit would move us to love Jesus Christ more dearly. We are praying to see the Holy Spirit working powerfully among us and through us to bring the Kingdom of God to others.

Particulars:

·  Monday mornings at 9 am.

·  75 to 90 minutes of scripture study and prayer.

·  to pray for every single person associated with this church.

·  to pray for the ministry of this church, for the welfare of our community and country, and we pray for ourselves.

Requirements

·  Do not have to be an expert in prayer or scripture

·  Must have a willingness to grow in faith

·  Must have a willingness to learn how to pray

·  Do not have to be there every Monday.

If you would like to inquire about the prayer group, please contact Pastor Douglas

Friday Morning Women’s Bible Study

The Friday Morning Women’s Bible Study will begin a new study on Isaiah on Friday, January 8, at 9:00 a.m. All women are welcome to join!

Daily Devotions Options

Daily devotions and spending time listening and talking with God is imperative not only for encouragement to face each day, but also to continue to grow in your faith.  There are many devotional ideas to consider. Here at St. John’s, we have the “Our Daily Bread” daily devotional booklets available in regular and large print form.  Ask an usher and they can get one for you.  Also, for those who have a smart phone, there is a free app called “Our Daily Bread Ministries” (ODB.org) that you can download. This is a great, convenient way to begin each day.  We encourage you to pass this information to your family and friends, especially to those who may be away at school or on the road and do not have access to a written form of devotion.  This message is from the Worship Committee who want to support you in your personal journey and inspire you to spend time with the Lord every day.
