The message at St. John’s is simple: We preach Christ and Him crucified. In every Divine Service, Christ is with us, offering grace and forgiveness where He promises they’ll be: in His Word and in His Sacraments.
We welcome you to join us.Visitor Information

The kingdom of heaven does not operate according of our fallen human reason—to the way we expect or anticipate… Rather it operates on a completely different set of rules. We think the kingdom of heaven should operate on fairness, on earning and on people getting what they deserve, but the kingdom of heaven does not do that. Though that may be fine elsewhere, Jesus does not deal with us on the basis of fairness—He deals with us on the basis of favor. Jesus does not deal with us on the basis of merit—Jesus deals with us on the basis of mercy.
But the road to the glory we glimpse in the Transfiguration isn’t by way of glory. It’s by way of suffering. And death. The suffering of the Son of God for the sins of the world. The death of the Son of God, the only Righteous, for the many unrighteous. For you. The hideous curse of the accursed tree that the accursed might be blessed in the forgiveness of their sins.
We come this morning to yet another great Epiphany of the Lord Jesus: Jesus has authority over the wind and the waves, in that they recognize His voice and obey.
