Join us as we sing, worship & celebrate this Easter!
You and your loved ones are welcome to join us this Holy Week and Easter Season. St. John has a full schedule of services for our members, friends and families to attend.
The Easter Story will be shared throughout Holy Week. We will gather to remember the Lord’s Supper on Thursday, we will remember the trials and sufferings our Lord endured on Good Friday, and on Saturday, we will start our Easter Celebration with the Vigil.
What is the Vigil? From the Living Lutheran Magazine: The Easter Vigil is the pinnacle of the church year. Held between sunset on Holy Saturday and sunrise on Easter morning, it is the first celebration of Easter (traditionally holy days are considered to begin at sunset). The Easter Vigil begins outside of the church building where a new paschal candle is blessed. Worshipers are reminded of the connection between the Passover of ancient Israel and the new Passover, which is Christ’s victory over sin and death. The alleluia is used for the first time since the beginning of Lent. Our readings all reflect the acts of salvation, told in the Old Testament. The Vigil of Easter remind us of our history while looking forward to our glorious future, provided by
On Easter Sunday, we will gather to celebrate the news of the empty tomb! Join us as we once again sing, Alleluia!
