Welcome to St.John

 We the members of St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church believe that in response to God's Good News we give God praise in all that we do, especially through worship together, Bible study groups, fellowship and mission outreach. We also believe that we can't always live our faith perfectly. That is why we need the forgiveness of our Savior Jesus.


 I was glad when they said to me,
"Let us go to the House of the Lord!”
Psalm 122:1 

  • We encourage the members of the Body of Christ at St. John to continue gathering for worship. In these strange and difficult times, the strength given to us by our Savior in His Word and Sacrament is what we need the most.  Per the executive order , we ask that all people who attend services bring a face covering for worship.   

  • Private Confession & Communion For those who are concerned about this mandate, either for or against, we continue to offer private Confession and Absolution and Holy Communion for individuals and family units.  Please, contact the church office with any questions or to schedule an appointment.  

Worship services are at St. John...
