News' by growing
inward through God's Word, Sacraments and Fellowship; and by growing
through words, actions and mission outreach." - St. John Lutheran Church
The Divine Service is the center of our life of faith in Christ. It is now being celebrated every Sunday at both 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. worship opportunities.
Seventh Sunday of Easter - May 16, 2021
The following represents the
schedule for upcoming Sunday Worship and Bible Class. Please know that evaluations
will continue as the pandemic remains.
We thank all who have been patient and understanding of our efforts to consider and meet the need for the safety of our members and community friends. We will continue to evaluate the worship needs and adjust services as needed. We look forward to seeing all who are able to attend in-person worship each week. Every effort will be made to accommodate our visitors when needed. God’s peace in Christ Jesus be with you all.
St. John’s members rejoice in receiving the gift of salvation from
God our Savior through Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. We
rejoice in the gift of Baptism through which our sins are washed
Many have been blessed to attend our in-person worship. Others have worshiped from afar through digital means. The ability to stream and record services is a blessing from God—but in-person is still preferable. If you are in the Crete, Nebraska, area and are considering worshipping with us in-person, we certainly welcome you to attend. Please contact us for times and sign-up.
If you would like to visit with me as Pastor, please send me an email with information on how best to contact you. We seek to serve others—especially in sharing the Good News of Christ—as Christ has served us with His gift of salvation. We pray that God’s peace would be yours in Christ Jesus. - Pastor Toensing
Beginning Sunday, May 9, we will begin transitioning toward more “normal” worship services. We continue to offer two worship opportunities, but signing up will no longer be required. We will still encourage the practice of distancing in the early service by using only every other pew. The early service will begin at 8:00 a.m. and the late service at 10:30 a.m. Adult Bible Class from 9:15 to 10:00 a.m. in the sanctuary. Sunday School will be at the same time, 9:15 to 10:00 a.m., but will be held in the Fellowship Hall. Sunday School classes will begin summer break on May 16.
Vacation Bible School Registration is now open for VBS 2021 at St. ! Mark your calendars for July 18-22 as we begin an exciting start to the planning of an in-person 2021 Vacation Bible School (all things considered)! (...read more)
Worship services at St. John are scheduled each Sunday and Wednesday. Sunday morning Communion services are held on the odd numbered weeks each month with non-communion services held on the even numbered Sundays. (Seasonally adjusted Service Times...)
Join us on Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. for adult Bible class where a variety of Christ centered topics are covered.
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.
