“Mighty Fortress” Vacation Bible School
Come join us for a “mighty” week at Saint John’s Mighty Fortress VBS, where children will learn through Bible lessons, games, crafts and snacks. Children confidently celebrate that Jesus, their champion, has power over sin, death and Satan. Because the victory is won, every day is a day to celebrate!
Our typical Sunday morning schedule:
- 9:00 AM: Divine Service (first, third and fifth Sundays) with Holy Communion or Service of the Word (second and fourth Sundays)
- 10:00 AM: Fellowship Time (Coffee, donuts and conversation in the Large Fellowship Hall)
- 10:30 AM: Bible Study Hour for all ages.
Please join us!
After He rose from the dead, Jesus presented Himself alive to the Apostles, appearing to them and continuing to teach them about the kingdom of God. These visits came over the course of forty days, until the time arrived for Him to ascend to the right hand of the Father. Though the Gospel of Luke ends with Christ’s ascension, the book of Acts, St. Luke’s continuing account to Theophilus, opens with it. The Ascension is not the end of the story! Just as He promised, Jesus would not leave His people as orphans, but would come to them in a greater way. Therefore, Jesus tells the disciples to wait for the Holy Spirit, who would clothe them with “power from on high.”
“A cloud took Him out of their sight,” but Jesus remains with His people through His Gospel and Sacraments. He comes to us in the Word, by the promise of His Father and the power of the Holy Spirit, whom He pours out upon “the church, which is His body.” We bless God and worship Christ with joy, for He blesses us with forgiveness, lifts us up in His hands, and seats us with Himself “in the heavenly realms.”
