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.

Weather permitting we’ll gather for a drive-in worship Saturday at 5:00 pm.    We’ll meet you in the parking lot, and invite you to stay in your vehicle or bring a lawn chair to sit outside your vehicle. 

9:45 Sunday Service will move indoors on July 12th.  The Sunday service will also be on Facebook Live!  Drive-in worship will continue Saturdays at 5:00.

Pastor's Message
Dear St. John's Friends and Family,

To say "it's been an unusual spring and summer" would be an understatement! I've had a couple of folks ask "does this seem like the 'end times'?" One could only hope! We're in an endurance race, some of us face quite a bit of disruption and anxiety. Some of us are doing ok. Many around the world are struggling, and as a nation-we're struggling too.

There's a Taize song (short, scripture songs by the monks of the Taize community in France), that I'll be humming and singing this week: Wait for the Lord, whose day is near. Wait for the Lord, be strong, take heart! (Psalm 27). While we wait, we pray-for God's kind of kingdom to more fully come; for God's will to be done in our lives and world. While we wait, we learn-things we didn't know during 'normal' times-about ourselves, about our neighbors, about our shared vulnerabilities. While we wait, we trust-that the Spirit of unity and love and power-can help us come together as a people and grow in faith, hope, love, and service even in times like these! -Pastor Paul
