Welcome to St. John’s Lutheran Church of Schuyler, NE!  We are a community of ordinary folks trying to follow the way of Christ in our daily lives.  Our ministry is in the middle of an exciting period of change and transformation and renewal, open to the movement of the Spirit in our midst.  Please come with us on the journey as our future continues to unfold.

We worship together in person and online every Sunday at 9:30am. You can find us in person on the southwest corner of 9th St. and Denver (a few blocks west of the middle school). You’ll can also find links to our live-stream and other resources on our Virtual Church page. If you are on Facebook, we also encourage you to connect with our group there and like our page.

Holy Week and Easter services
We invite you to accompany us during Holy Week, the last stage of our journey toward the cross, and to celebrate with us the joyous feast of Easter. All services will be in person and live-streamed:

  • Palm Sunday: April 2, 9:30am CDT – We join Jesus’ triumphal march into Jerusalem, waving palm branches and shouting ‘Hosannas’ that turn into shouts of “Crucify him” as we read the Passion story.
  • Maundy Thursday: April 6, 6:30pm CDT – We sit with Jesus and the twelve at the Last Supper and wash one another’s feet as Jesus commanded us; this service ends in silence with the stripping of the altar.
  • Good Friday: April 7, 6:30pm CDT – We gather silently in the shadow of the cross for a solemn, reflective service on the day commemorating Jesus’ crucifixion.
  • Easter Vigil: April 8, 6:30pm CDT – On the great Vigil of Easter, we gather around the lighting of a new fire to hear the great story of God’s faithfulness, from creation through to the life and death of Christ, as hope begins to shine forth from an empty tomb. This service will also be followed by a celebratory reception — with cake!
  • Easter Sunday: April 9, 9:30am CDT – On this joyful day of days, we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Come worship with us! All are welcome — come as you are.

If you are seeking after the God of life, if you are looking for somewhere to belong, if you’re just trying to figure out what it all means, there is a place for you here.  Whether you’re a life-long churchgoer, or you haven’t been in a while — or you’ve never been — or you’re still not completely sure about this whole church thing altogether, you are welcome here!

Please consider making an offering to support our ministry. Thank you!
