St. John's Lutheran Church, as a family of faith, strives to worship and praise the Lord by hearing and learning God's Word, living it out in service, and spreading it joyfully!
Join us for worship service at 9:00 am each Sunday. All are welcome to remain following the service when we enjoy refreshments and conversation during Sunday Fellowship. Sunday school at 10:30 on Sundays .
If you haven't already liked St. John's Lutheran Church on Facebook, please check it out. There are videos from past performances by our choirs and other talented musicians we are blessed to have in our church family. You will also have access to video messages from our Sunday School along other sources of information and inspiration. Something new and exciting is the video Sermons from our new Interim Pastor, Rich Mcleer. This is another way to connect with St. John's and the Word of the Lord.

FROM THE OFFICE:
As many of you may know, our website is having problems displaying the bulletin and message documents. Weebly, the web publisher, is aware of the issue and is trying to resolve this problem in a timely manner. I know, especially during times like this, we want connection with one another and His word so I will be posting the lessons and message from our bulletins on Facebook. If you'd like I can email those documents to you or even mail out a copy. They are also avaible in the church office during office hours. To make arrangements to receive the bulletins & messages, please reach me at 375-5855 between the hours of 8am and noon, Monday thru Friday. You can email email@example.com, or leave a message here to request desired materials.
Until further notice office hours will be 8am to noon, Monday thru Friday. Doors will be locked once I leave the building. If you have any questions or need anything form the church or office outside of that time frame, please give me a call at the church office to make arrangements, 375-5855.
There has been concern expressed regarding how to still be able to make offerings to St. John’s during this time that we are unable to gather together for services. If you would like, offerings can be dropped off at the office, mail checks to the church (208 Mary St.), or if you’d like, here on the website at the top of the page click the green “GIVE NOW” option, you can make your offering electronically.
- Thanks, Val Brandes - St. John's Office Administrator
