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 Fellow Members of the Body of Christ:

Remember this, please: the opposite of fear is faith. (Faith is also the antidote for fear!) We live in a world of fear. Much of our political speech centers around fear. And yes, there are things to fear! But fear doesn't make us smart. And it doesn't make for good theology or good personal or public policy. (More people will die today in the U.S. of car accidents than have died in the U.S. since 9/11 in terror attacks. Guess which ranks as the #1 fear?) Jesus warned his disciples there would be all kinds of things that could make them afraid. And he constantly coached them "do not be afraid!" I think we all can heed Jesus' words and find ways to talk others (and our society) down from our fears. At the same time, we keep praying "deliver us from evil." And you know what? God says "I will!"

Remember, the opposite of fear is faith! I am always open to talking about any of the things that might make you afraid. And if you're curious, I'm usually willing to talk about the things that make me afraid, and how I deal with those.

-Pastor Paul
