Welcome to St. John’s Ev. Lutheran Church – Brule, Nebraska. We are a small, rural congregation and a member congregation of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS)
After a long year and enduring times of adjusting, we have once again returned to our usual schedules and routines here at St. John’s. We are encouraging all members and guests to also return and join together in weekly worship services. The writer to the Hebrews declares:
“…let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” (Heb. 10:24-25, ESV) It may be easy to continue staying away from church because that is what you have become accustomed to do so; it may very well be easy to continue to stay away from church out of fear. But remember, dear friends, Christ is greater than our fears. Jesus has removed the fear of death and the penalty of sin from us! Jesus Christ is our Great Physician of both body and soul. He comes weekly to us who are plagued–not only with COVID, but more importantly, with sin. Jesus brings a healing that is vitally important for your life. No need to put your name on a list or stand in line for a vaccine. Jesus gives the healing medicine for souls through His Word and Sacraments here in His House! Jesus bids us, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Mt. 11:28, ESV)
For those who still have reservations about being out in public, we continue to LIVE STREAM the Sunday Divine Services as well as other special services (see times in the margin to the right), through our website. Click HERE to be taken to that page. Bible Class will also be LIVE STREAMED beginning around 10:15 a.m.
You also have the opportunity and are encouraged to join us for Morning Devotions, held each Tuesday and Thursday in the sanctuary at church, beginning at 7:00 a.m.
God’s richest blessings to you as you serve both our Lord and your neighbor in your daily vocation.
Peace to you in Christ,
