What is ADVENT

Advent begins the 4th Sunday before December 25, or the Sunday closest to St. Andrew (Nov. 30) and ends with midday prayer on December 24.

The calendar of the Church begins with Advent (from Latin adventus, which means "coming into"), a 4-week period of preparation before Christmas. The story of Jesus in Advent is the story of hope coming into the world. When the time was just right, God sent His Son, Jesus, into the world. The Advent season teaches us to prepare to receive Jesus, the hope of the World.

It has become common to use an Advent wreath to mark the season. An Advent wreath has four candles – one for each week in Advent. As these candles are lit each week, our anticipation mounts as we look forward to Jesus' coming.

Jesus Resurrected What is the resurrection of Jesus



Monthly Bible Verse 

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
    and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
    and he will make straight your paths.

St. John’s Lutheran Church Prayer Chain

phone    Prayer


We are renewing the prayer chain list and are seeking church members who would like to be part of the prayer chain. Serving as “a pray-er” is quite simple and very rewarding.


          The way the chain works is that prayer requests are phoned into Anita Neitzel at (718) 442 2519. She writes down the request, prays, and then passes the prayer request on to the next person. If no answer, she leaves a message and calls the next person on the list to keep the chain of prayer going. When the last person on the chain receives the prayer request, they will let Anita know.


      Please pray about your participation and call me if God leads you to be part of this ministry.



Thank You and God Bless You, 

Joan Mohlenhoff

(718) 273 2644
