Theme of the Day

Christmas begins Act 5: Jesus & the Gospel of John.

Our mission is to welcome all, tell the story, grow as disciples. The Word is the foundation of our shared story. St. John’s will focus on a story each week, not just in worship, but also in children’s ministry, youth ministry, and adult groups.

We cross over from the Old Testament (Hebrew Scriptures) to the New Testament with John’s Gospel as the primary reading. John was written almost 50 years after Jesus’ death and is different from the synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. John focuses on signs and symbols. In other words, “Where Matthew, Mark and Luke are detailed and descriptive. John’s gospel is an interpretation of who Jesus is”—Rev. Randy Terry.
