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:

Human beings have trouble figuring out what is true and what is false. This is not a new characteristic of being human! Know anyone who was 100% sure that it was "true love", and then found that not to be the case? Know anyone who has been lying to themselves and their loved ones about addiction or faithfulness or....? Heard any 'fake' news lately? Yes-to all the above! Jesus spoke truth; lived truth; died for the truth; and claims to be the Way, the Truth, and the Life! Right now is an essential time to listen to the truth of Jesus' teachings, and the truth of scripture. And it's an essential time to help each other sort out fact from fiction, truth from falsehood, for the sake of our life together as a people and as a nation.

Though the truth about ourselves or about our world is sometimes painful, it is always preferable to falsehood and denial. And the greater truth is always that God loves us (and our enemies) enough to claim us, to forgive us, to renew us, and to help set our feet onto a solid path. Will you let this be your prayer? Speak to us through your Word, Lord; your Word is truth. Help us also to speak the truth in every way and make us willing and able to search for truth, and listen for truth, and defend truth. In Jesus' name. Amen.

-Pastor Paul
