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 in Christ:

My summer has flown by. I suspect yours has too! Sometimes living in this culture consumes every moment of our time. (And sometimes we let it consume us!) September will be full, too! School starts. Sunday School and Confirmation and Youth Group happen. (Something named "Packers" happens?) We'll want to invite and get to know new people at church. Let me encourage you to stay centered in worship, in Holy Communion, with your church family, and in serving in the community. Clearly life can get very busy very quickly! We also trust that in the days and hours God gives us, "there is time for every purpose under heaven."

Praying that we all find some moments each day to rest in God's grace and in God's presence!

-Pastor Paul

Tonight is our last Wednesday supper (6:00-6:30) and worship (7:00). The "Half-Truth" we'll unpack is "Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin." Once again, this is not in the Bible! Rather, in the Bible we hear Jesus teach: "Do not judge, that you may not be judged" and especially we hear him say "Love your neighbor as yourself."
The cliche "Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin" tends to put us in a position "over" someone whose life or whose choices or whose issues rub us the wrong way.
Ghandi made this point: "'Hate the sin but not he sinner' is a precept, that although easy enough to understand, is rarely put into practice, and that is why the poison of hatred spreads in the world."
