Welcome to St. John Lutheran Church
Third Week of Advent
What is Advent?
Advent means the arrival of a notable person, thing, or event. The Advent season is a preparation period as we await the celebration of Christ's birth at Christmas.
How do we celebrate?
Each Sunday we light a candle placed around an evergreen wreath. We read the Scriptures and pray, drawing our hope, love, joy, and peace that Christ brings.
How is God using St. John during Advent season?
By embracing tradition we are drawn into the rich history of our Christian faith and we are reminded of our place in God's story of being saved from our own sin through faith is Christ. We would like to share that with you by inviting you to three services.
Sunday Worship 10:00 am with lighting of Advent candles
Wednesday Evening 7:00 pm Holden Evening Prayer
Christmas Eve Candlelight Service 7:00 pm
(St. John will not have a Christmas day service this year)
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.
