All Saints' Church, commonly referred to as Schlosskirche (Castle Church) to distinguish it from the Stadtkirche (Town Church) of St. Mary's

The royal banners forward go;
The cross shines forth in mystic glow
Where He in flesh, our flesh who made,
Our sentence bore, our ransom paid.
Where deep for us the spear was dyed,
Life’s torrent rushing from His side,
To wash us in that precious flood
Where mingled water flowed and blood.
Fulfilled is all that David told
In true prophetic song of old;
Amidst the nations, God, saith he,
Hath reigned and triumphed from the tree.
Venantius Fortunatus
The Lutheran Hymnal 168, stanzas 1-3

Fr.  Daniel Pfaffe

The Faithful of St. Johns Church are committed to the Gospel of Christ fully presented in the Holy Scriptures, rightly explained in the Evangelical-Lutheran Confessions, and reverently proclaimed in the Holy Mass. The Faithful of St. Johns live this chief commitment in two ways: in faith and in love.
