Catechesis & New Membership

Catechesis means "Instruction in the Christian Faith." Catechesis begins when one inquires about membership in the Evangelical-Lutheran Church and continues in various forms throughout the life of a Christian.

Those desiring membership at St. John are asked to speak with the pastor. In order to receive the Lord's Supper, instruction in the Christian faith according to the Scriptures and Luther's Small Catechism is necessary. There is no fee or obligation for instruction.

Those who are already members of St. John mature and deepen in their understanding of the faith and their love for the Lord and neighbor by attending Divine Service and, as schedules permit, partaking of one or more of the following forums for ongoing catechesis:

  • Adult Bible Class, held Sundays at 10:30 a.m.
  • Midweek School, for Grades 4–8 preparing to receive the Lord's Supper; meets Wednesdays during the school year from 6:30 – 7:45 p.m. in the basement.
  • Adult Catechesis (new member instruction) contact the pastor for the current schedule or to schedule a time.
Visitation of the Hospitalized and Homebound - From the Pastor

There are circumstances in life that might land someone in the hospital. As your pastor, I consider it a high priority to visit when one of our members is in the hospital. But I might not always get the message. Sometimes people forget. Sometimes you might assume that someone else will let me know. If I should know that someone is in need of a pastoral visit in the hospital, please let me know. I would rather get five calls or messages letting me know than none. Thank you, Pastor Toensing
