The celebration of Easter is not a one-day event. All the hopes that Christians have rely on the resurrection of Jesus from the dead; the resurrection is the central truth of the Christian religion. That means that every Sunday is a "little Easter." The Christian Church devotes a season of Sundays to the specific blessings of the resurrection and these will be the focus from April 11 through May 20.
Come and worship with us at
10:00 a.m. on Sunday.
Sunday sermons are available under
"Sunday Sermons" on this site.
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. Rest rooms 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.
Although protocols seem to be relaxing, we desire to make concerned guests and members feel safe at worship.
If you feel ill in any way, have an unusual cough, or have been exposed to someone who has the Coronavirus, please stay home.
If possible, please be seated only in designated pews. Households may sit together.
We prefer (although we do not demand) that worshipers wear masks.
We sing in worship. Significant studies indicate that singing in situations with masks and social distancing is not a threat to good health.
The offering is gathered by making plates available near the doors of the church.
Holy Communion is offered on our regular communion Sundays, the second and fourth Sundays of the month. We follow safe distribution prodecures.
Members of St. John's and our sister congregation, Trinity in Mequon, gather for Christian education on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. at St. John's Church. Study courses include Bible books and topical studies connected to our faith.
A new course begins on April 7 which will focus on the mission and ministry of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS), the denomination to which St. John's belongs. The course intends to explain how our members and other believers in WELS carry out the Savior's commission to be faithful to his Word and spread the good news around the world.
