The Divine Service

The Divine Service is the center of our life of faith in Christ. It is celebrated every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. The Sacrament of the Altar is celebrated on odd Sundays of the month and festival days. Holy Communion is also offered on Wednesday evenings during portions of the year.

Parish Services


Thank you Pastor Hayes

Our congregational time spent in joyful memory of the blessings we received while Pastor Hayes was in our midst will linger for some time to come. We were thankful to have had an informal meal prior to the voters meeting held earlier. His parting was emotional, yet understandable. We all pray for the Hayes family in their safe move to Colorado and that God will bless them continually in the future. As we continue forward in determining the steps leading toward St. Johns' future call process, we are also left reminded to pray for each other and remain focused in but one direction; Jesus Christ our Redeemer.

From the Pastor

A Farwell Message

Pastors are expendable. I don’t mean they are unnecessary. God has instituted and commanded the Office of the Holy Ministry. A congregation must call a pastor or it is no congregation at all. I also don’t mean that a congregation can dispose of its pastor. Only the pastor who has disqualified himself by persistent false teaching, scandalous living, or persistent and willful dereliction of duty may rightly be removed from office. What I mean is that no individual pastor is Jesus.  (Read more...)

  • Flowers on the Altar

    A calendar has been placed in the entryway of the church to reserve a date to place flowers on the altar. If you would like to donate toward flowers, the Ladies’ Aid Altar Committee will purchase the flowers and place them on the altar for you. Only live flowers are placed on the altar. (Flowers will not be placed on the altar during the seasons of Advent and Lent). If you have questions please contact LaVonne Nitzel, JoAnn Renner or Diane Kahle.

Sunday Bible Class

Join us on Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. for adult Bible class where a variety of topics, always Gospel centered, will be presented by our visiting Pastors.

Jesus Christ brings the Gospel (from older English, "Good-spel," "good news") to the world. He announces that in His person the kingdom of God has come to mankind and that through faith in Him people might find new and eternal life. He is Himself the Good News, or Gospel.
