About St. John "Sadler's"


Sadler's is a place where all people may experience God's love.  We are people called and empowered by the Holy Spirit.  We gather for worship and learning each Sunday at 9:00 am.  Our teachings are from the Bible which we use as the basis of our life together.  Sunday morning service follows the traditional Lutheran liturgy, utilizing the "Green" Lutheran Book of Worship, with variations throughout the seasons of the church year.

The services include scripture readings, prayer, choir anthem, and sermon by Pastor Robbins. Pastor Ed preaches with energy and passion about the Good News of God's Love in words we can easily understand.  The services are filled with scripture reading, prayer and reflection, and joyous singing. A service of Holy Communion is observed on the first Sunday of each month and on major festival Sundays throughout the church year.  Special services are held on Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Easter Sunday, and Thanksgiving Eve. 

A fellowship time with light refreshments follows the service on the second and fourth Sundays of each month.

Confirmation class as well as classes for Prospective Members are offered.
 
Numerous fellowship activities are offered throughout the year, including candy making, monthly breakfasts, Easter breakfast, congregation picnic, spaghetti supper, movie nights, Christmas covered dish supper, etc.
