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 Friends and Fellow Members of the Body of Christ:

God bless America! Land that I love! Stand beside her, and guide her, through the night with the light from above! I don't think it's just me. As a nation we seem to be stumbling in the dark. We're angry. We're fearful. We're short with each other. We're forgetting some things, like-10 year old Jake reminded us in worship Saturday evening: "Seems to me that if people would just keep the Golden Rule, they would be keeping most of the commandments!" And we're forgetting that we are 'blessed to be a blessing.'

There's no easy way 'out!' But we can start by remembering who we are, and what we're called to be and do: We can remember we are God's own; that we belong to one another; and that the call to love our neighbors as ourselves has no boundaries. We can also remember that "We Are Church Together" and we have partners in our ELCA who will help us advocate for good policies. They'll remind us that people matter more than politics. Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (www.lirs.org) has been at their task since WWII. They know the people. They know the issues. They know the scriptures. They can help us learn and help us act.

All of us have a duty to educate ourselves. We can talk with each other. We can reach out to members of Congress. We can remember the Golden Rule. And we can pray that God will guide this nation, and that we might be ready to be guided, in Jesus' life-giving ways!

-Pastor Paul
