Worship this Week

The First Sunday after Pentecost
The Holy Trinity

June 4, 2023
The Triune God Blesses His People
Today we focus our worship on the Holy Trinity. All Christians confess the truth that there is one God in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God reveals to us in the Bible how we benefit from the triune nature he possesses. In that way, this special Sunday is no different from any other Sunday. It simply shines the spotlight on the indescribable blessings we receive every time we gather in the name of our Lord, our triune God.
Prayer of the Day
Almighty God and Father, dwelling in majesty and mystery, filling and renewing all creation by your eternal Spirit, and manifesting your saving grace through our Lord Jesus Christ, in mercy cleanse our hearts and lips that, free from doubt and fear, we may ever worship you, one true, immortal God, with your Son and the Holy Spirit, living and reigning, now and forever. Amen.

Our Way of Worship

Our Sunday worship follows a worship pattern used in Christian churches for almost 1,500 years but in contemporary language and a variety of styles. The entire service is printed in an easy to use folder. We hear readings from the Bible and join together in prayer. We sing psalms and hymns found in a hymnal called Christian Worship which contains hundreds of well-known hymns. The high point of Sunday worship is the message or sermon, a twenty-minute explanation of a reading from the Bible and its meaning for our lives in the 21st century.

Some of our older members dress up for church, but casual dress is perfectly fine. The Lord looks at our hearts and attitudes, not our clothes. Members support the congregation’s work with offerings, but guests should not feel obligated to participate. Restrooms are located in the lower level of the church.

On two Sundays a month we celebrate Holy Communion, a special meal that forgives our sins as we receive the Savior’s body and blood in bread and wine. The Bible teaches that receiving Holy Communion with others symbolizes our unity in faith, and so communion is offered to St. John's members and members of our denomination.
