Are you looking for a church? Please join us! Our ministry programs serve all ages from newborn to senior adults. From Sunday School each Sunday morning to Word of Life on Wednesday evenings, our children enjoy a full field of opportunities. In addition to Sunday morning Bible Studies, our youth are engaged in various types of activities from small group studies on Wednesday nights and mission trips to M-Fuge, to fun fellowship activities. St. John’s also has a strong adult ministry program. Our 11:00am service is a blended worship with traditional choir and worship team leading the congregation in hymns, anthems, as well as praise and worship music.Read More
We are dedicated to ensuring that your children have a safe, fun, and meaningful experience when they come with you to worship. To that end, we provide free childcare ministry staffed with competent, enthusiastic, loving, and screened workers from infant to Kindergarten. Older children may worship with their family for the entire service, or may be dismissed to Children’s Church prior to the sermon.
We hope you’ll join us for our Sunday School Bible studies at 9:30am, and then for our 11:00am worship service to see what we’re all about. Through diverse music and practical messages, the truths of the Bible are presented in a format that are easy to understand and practical to apply even if you’ve never been to church
We hope the information on this page will be helpful as you plan your visit. A full list of our services is available on the “About” page. For more information about St. John’s or to have someone contact you, click here.
EVERYTHING FOR GOD’S KINGDOM
April 13 at 7pm
WHAT IS MAUNDY THURSDAY???
During the waning days of what we now observe in modern orthodoxy as Lent, Jesus and His disciples slowly made their way through the Judean hillsides towards the city of Jerusalem. As they neared Jerusalem, they stopped at the home of Mary and Martha, ardent followers of Jesus, in the tiny village of Bethany. After a period of rest, they then resumed their journey. Approaching the city of Jerusalem, they were tired and weary, and needing a respite from their travels. It was during this time, on Maundy Thursday, that this small group of travelers made its way to the upper room for a time of supping together in what has become known as the Last Supper.Read More
Did Jesus and His disciples refer to this particular Thursday as “Maundy Thursday?” No, not at all. This is a term that Christians, much later, attached to the Thursday before Easter Sunday. The term “Maundy” is derived from the Latin word “Mandatum” which means commandment. During this Last Supper, or “Passover” meal, Jesus commanded His disciples to “Love one another as I have loved you” (John 13:34). Thus, Christians commemorate the Last Supper of Jesus with His apostles, and this commandment that our Lord gave and demonstrated as He supped with the apostles.
Over the years, St. John’s has presented Maundy Thursday programs, sometimes alternating with Good Friday programs. These presentations are worship programs used to give our congregation a better understanding and feel for the anguish that Christ felt, and the agony brought on by the events that led up to His crucifixion.
In our presentation this year of THE GIFT, a musical program written, developed and narrated by one of our members, the presentation endeavors to draw the audience into a feeling for the days leading up to that fateful day in the life of Jesus.
We hope you will want to join us for this observance, so mark your calendar for April 13 at 7 p.m. for this important and inspirational worship service at our church. You won’t want to miss it. See you then!
