Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ:
It is with great joy that we welcome you into the midst of the congregation of Saint John in Ponca Hills (Omaha). We like to think of one another as “family” and we invite you to check out our worship services and Bible studies. We strive to make every worship experience a fresh and enriching experience and hope you will join us on Sunday to see it for yourself. We are Missouri Synod Lutherans which means we hold the Bible and all it’s teachings to be God-inspired and without error. We teach the whole of Scripture and abide by its teachings in all we say and do.
While we are “family”, like most families we are also individuals, each valued and loved by God, and each with their own set of life situations and gifts from God. We try to live as God would want us to, but in accordance with Romans 3:23, (…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God) we recognize that each of us are sinners in need of the forgiveness God freely gives and the heavenly salvation we receive through faith, not works, as a gift of the Holy Spirit. We have people of all sorts from singles to families, kids, no kids, and grand kids, blue-collar to professional, and life-long Lutherans to those just now exploring the claims of Christ.
We want to be your neighborhood church and we hope that we will see you sometime soon. Don’t hesitate to call upon us with any needs or questions. We are here to serve the kingdom of God by serving our neighbors.
