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,

Our Greater Milwaukee Synod Bishop, Paul Erickson, was invited to give the opening prayer at a recent Interfaith Conference in Milwaukee, where members of Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and Sikh congregations gathered around the topic of "Faith in Democracy in Troubled Times," regarding the place of faith in our civic life. Bishop Paul gave this prayer, and I invite you to pray it too:

Creator of us all, we delight in the glorious diversity of your creation. We come from different places and are shaped by different experiences. We think differently, we worship differently, we act differently, and we vote differently. And yet, we are also united in many ways; we all dream and despair, rejoice and suffer on this, our common home. Guide us as we seek to deepen our relationships with you, with one another, and with the world around us, shaped by curiosity, courage, and compassion. Help us to refrain from using confusion and conflict as an excuse to remain passive bystanders to the challenges facing us. Keep us humble, reminding us that none of us can hold the fullness of truth in our small hands. Inspire us to come together, across all the gaps that divide us, to reweave the fabric of our torn society, until the day when the whole creation will experience the peace, reconciliation, and joy that we all so deeply long for. Amen.

We can add the words, "Through Jesus Christ, our Lord" while we keep praying, and listening, and speaking the truth in love! Amen!

-Pastor Paul

Between Saturday's "Service of Remembrance" and today's "All Saints' Sunday" worship, I am grateful to all you saints who gathered as a faith community. You came to hear God's Word; to offer prayer and praise; and to be 'church' together. Thank you to guests who came for Lilianna's baptism as well! It amazes me how the Spirit gathers us, equips us, and sends us back out into the world to be those ordinary saints who have extraordinary serving to do! ... See MoreSee Less
