Please join us as we prepare for Christmas throughout the Advent season in December and celebrate the birth of our Savior on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Our Christmas services will be:
3:30 & 5:00 p.m.
This is what's happening at St. John throughout December.
The season of Advent is a season of waiting and anticipation. During this season, we eagerly anticipate the celebration of the birth of Jesus, who was born over 2,000 years ago in order to give us life. But we also spend this season waiting for Christ’s promised return, when He will make all things new. Throughout Advent, we will be doing two different sermon series, one of which will emphasize Jesus’ first coming and the other His second coming.
Who is Jesus? (Sunday Sermon Series)
Time: 8:00 & 10:30 a.m.
Since the dawn of time, about 60 billion people have walked on Planet Earth. Of those 60 billion people, only a handful have made any real, lasting impression. In that handful of people, one stands far above all of the others. His name is Jesus. On Sunday's in December we'll explore the answer to the question “Who is Jesus?” by focusing on the genealogy of Mary’s son as it is given to us at the beginning of the Gospel of Matthew 1:1-17.
2 Thessalonians (Advent Wednesday Sermon Series)
Time: 7:00 p.m.
The focus of 2 Thessalonians is on Jesus’ return. The ESV Study Bible puts it this way, “Paul wrote 2 Thessalonians (1) to reassure those terrified by the thought that the day of the Lord had come, (2) to strengthen the Thessalonians in the face of unremitting persecution, and (3) to deal with the problem of some of the church members refusing to earn their own living.”
