About Us

St. John's Lutheran Church, through the work of the Holy Spirit, empowers its people to be disciples of Jesus Christ, proclaim the gospel and witness Christ's love to all people. We are part of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod - a confessional Lutheran church with more than 6,000 congregations and about 2 million members in North America.

As Lutherans, we believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God. It teaches that God the Father created the world and still cares for it. Although we are dead in sin and unable to do anything to save ourselves, by His death on the cross Jesus paid the full ransom price to free us from sin and eternal death. The Holy Spirit brings us to faith in Jesus through Holy Baptism and empowers us to live as His people.  

Please join us Saturdays at 6:00 p.m. for Worship and Sundays at 9:00 a.m. for Sunday School (September through May) and Adult Bible Study (year round), followed by Worship at 10:15 a.m.

We Gather to Receive

God has promised to give generously of His mercy and His Holy Spirit through His Word and Sacraments.  We are confident that we receive them because their reception is not dependent on us, but rather on God's promises.  We receive God’s grace even when we feel unworthy or our hearts are distracted, or we doubt.  We receive God’s grace because He is the one who does the work to provide them for us. St. John's baptizes people from newborn to adult; this gift which creates faith is for all people (Acts 2:38-39, Matthew 28:18-20). We also celebrate the Lord's Supper weekly, recognizing the immense benefits of forgiveness of sins and the strengthening of our faith through this Sacrament (Matthew 26:27-28), as well as the benefits of receiving it as often as we gather in God's house.

We Gather to Celebrate God's Grace, Confess the Faith, and to Encourage Each Other

God is good and gracious, and we give thanks and offer songs of praise in celebration of His love for us. Our participation in the worship life of the congregation is a public witness of our confidence in God. Worship is not only about receiving God's gifts, but also boldly confessing what we believe, teach, and confess as God's people. We do so in the liturgy, the Creeds, the hymns, the prayers, the sermon, the Lord's Supper, and everything else in the service. Our gatherings also enable us to demonstrate our love and support for one another.  For us, it is all about a very real and powerful impetus from God's Word to love as Christ first loved us, a pledge we make to our neighbors and to each other.

We Gather to Care

We are a community of faith which not only gathers in worship, but also in community service. As we work together and share our resources, we are better able to love our community and assist people who are in need.
