Welcome to St. John's Lutheran Church!

God has blessed St. John’s since 1862 with faithful members, pastors, and newcomers. We’re a congregation of sinners and saints of all ages. Our worship blends traditional and contemporary, with opportunities for growth, fellowship, and service. We extend Christ’s welcome to all who seek to worship, know, and serve the Lord.


Pastor's Message
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

August is sometimes a quiet month. Families go on vacation. Congress leaves Washington. Co-workers might be away. I hope August allows some sabbath time for each of you; some chance to relax and to rest in God.

We might even slow down as Church, a bit in August. Then again, we're looking ahead to fall, asking "Who might be ready to teach Sunday School?", and "What shall we do for the church picnic?", and "How do we stay connected with our students who are off to college?", and always: "What can we do to be church together?"

If you're around, we'll look for you in worship! If you're away, look for a church to visit! When you're back, we'll have a Family Fun Night on 8/15, and a final Cookout and Campfire on 8/29. In the meantime, keep thanking God for summer days; keep praying for those who are hurting or at risk near and far; and keep asking for the courage and imagination to love your neighbor! Oh, and we're in the short Book of Ruth this month, which actually does help us see what it takes to love one another!

-Pastor Paul
