Advent in the Christian church calendar is the period of preparation for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ at Christmas and also of preparation for the Second Coming of Christ.
Christmas Eve Candle Light Service
Friday, December 24 at 7:00 pm
In winter's deepest night, we welcome the light of the Christ Child. Isaiah declares that the light of the long-promised king will illumine the world and bring endless peace and justice. Paul reminds us that the grace of God through Jesus Christ brings salvation to all people. The angels declare that Jesus’ birth is good and joyful news for everyone, including lowly shepherds. Filled with the light that shines in our lives, we go forth to share the light of Christ with the whole world.
Won't you join us?
Welcome to St. John Lutheran Church
Welcome to St. John
On behalf of St. John Lutheran Church we want to welcome you (even before you get here!) as you explore our website.
We hope you’ll find this a helpful tool in discovering a little of what our church is about. But for as much as we appreciate our website we continue to believe that the Christian faith is centered around the great reality of a personal God who has entered our world in Jesus Christ. We want to encourage you to come and visit and introduce yourself to us. Nothing can take the place of a personal encounter and relationship. Blessings in Christ to you!
NEW TO OUR CHURCH?
We are an active and vital congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and are actively committed to the lifelong process of becoming followers (disciples) of Jesus Christ. Visit us and we hope you will see signs of welcome, signs of remembrance of who we are as God’s children, and signs of the community of God’s people. We love seeing people of all ages coming together in worship, learning, and living lives of holy service.
As His disciples, we are called to Meet God in our everyday lives. St. John Lutheran seeks to provide a place and opportunities for that to happen.
Warm smiles and greetings are shared by our members and ushers each Sunday morning as guests arrive for worship. Conversation fills the narthex as people make their way into the sanctuary to the sound of musical preludes that are enjoyed before service begins.
If you're new to St. John Lutheran or you're considering joining us for a worship service, our doors are wide open to people of all backgrounds.
We're a place to explore Christianity in a comfortable environment, regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey. We hope you will be warmly welcomed and feel at home.
We have a “come as you are” atmosphere, so dress casual.
If you have any questions before or after the service, please don’t hesitate to ask the person next to you. You'll find people here eager to help in anyway they can.
A Welcome Folder is available for you by our Guest Book as you enter the sanctuary.
St. John, Ingomar is a strong, loving congregation with a commitment to compassionate service. As our membership ages, we hope to pass on this legacy to a new generation of those who love Jesus Christ and share His word.
Built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. 21 In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. 22 And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
