Please read the Church's Response regarding COVID-19


We have an amazing God, who does amazing things! At the Lutheran Church of St. John, we focus on God's love given to us in Jesus Christ. We respond to God's love by growing in faith through hearing God's Word in worship and studying together in our small group opportunities. All ages gather in faith to encourage one another in our women's ministries, men's ministries, youth and children's ministries. Then together we serve in faith, sharing God's love with our community. We invite you to join us in receiving and responding to God's amazing love in Jesus.


Happy Memorial Day Everyone.

In the midst of your BBQs, gardening or bikes ride, I pray you will take a few minutes to take advantage of our worship resources below.

While we are getting closer to opening up the sanctuary for worship again, we are not quite there yet.  In the meantime I will see many of you this weekend for a celebration of the Lord’s Supper.  At last check there were still a few times available late in the afternoon. 

Parking Lot Worship – On Sunday, June 7 at 9:30 am we will gather together for worship in our parking lot. When you arrive you will be directed to a parking spot.  You will stay in your car and tune your radio to the proper station where you will be able to hear the worship service.  Watch next week for more details about the service.  I hope you can all join us.

I pray that your families are all doing well.  IF you have any concerns or needs, don’t hesitate to let me know.  May God’s grace fill your life in abundance.

Grace Overflowing

       Bringing Faith to Life through God’s Unchanging Word

In light of the serious nature of the Corona virus pandemic, we are going to have to make some unwanted sacrifices in regard to our worship life for the next few weeks. As of today, we will not be holding public services.  We are working on making worship resources available online and will have information to share very soon.  It pains us all to be in this situation, but we have an obligation to follow the advice of our government on the one hand and on the other hand to do our best to look out for those who are most vulnerable.  In the face of this crisis we need not panic. The church has survived other such pandemics in the past and because we have a gracious God the church will survive this as well.  In the meantime, pray for our church, pray for our nation, pray for all nations as we struggle together.  Stay engaged in God’s Word and hopefully soon we will gather together again in the Lord’s house.

Please check back for further information.
