What can I expect during the worship service?

Every Christian church has its own style of worshiping Jesus. We try to create a reverent and relevant worship experience at St. John. Our services meet you where you're at - whether you're brand new or have been worshipping with us for years.

Our services are liturgical, meaning they usually follow a similar pattern each week, of carefully selected Bible readings and fitting hymns. Both the readings and the hymns will speak to the need that we have for a Savior and what that Savior did for us.

How long will the service last?

The service will last about an hour.

What it I'm late?

Don’t worry about it! Just come on in!

Ushers will be there to help you find a seat if you’re a few minutes late.

What should I wear?

There is no dress code at St. John. You’ll see some people dressed in jeans and a polo, and others will be dressed in khaki shorts and a t-shirt.

Come as you are! We're much more concerned about your heart than your wardrobe.

What kind of church are you?

We’re a Lutheran church, part of the Wisconsin Evangelical Luteran Synod (WELS). You can learn more about our church body by clicking the link below. You can also learn more about what we believe and teach by clicking "Our Beliefs" link.

Wisconsin Synod (WELS) Our Beliefs
What about my kids? Will they attend worship with me?

We love having children in our worship services. We believe that worshipping together as a whole family is important, so children are always welcome. At the same time, we know that this is sometimes challenging for both children and parents. If your child makes some noise, no problem! We believe that those cries are the cries coming from our church's future!

However, if you feel the need to take your child out of church, there is a cry room right off of the entry way in church so you can still participate in the service. You may also take your child to the lower level if you feel the need to do so.

Can I talk to someone first?

We understand that visiting a new church can be hard. From new faces to unfamiliar traditions, the experience can be overwhelming. We'd love to connect with you and learn more about you.
