About Our Church


Who We Are

  • Serve one another and all those in need inspired by our faith and hope
  • Love, welcome, and invite all people in the name of Christ.


 St. John's Position on The Lord's Supper:

  • As Lutheran Christians, we believe Christ’s body and blood are truly present with the bread and wine, offering forgiveness of sins to all who believe in Jesus Christ.  We ask those who commune to share this unity of faith in Christ and understanding of the Sacrament of Holy Communion.  Since the Scripture teaches that we are “to examine ourselves before eating of the bread and drinking of the cup” (1 Corinthians 11:28), if you are not certain of the meaning of Holy Communion or have not been baptized or instructed in the Christian faith, please speak with the Pastor before communing.
  • St. John offers First Communion to youth only after instruction during the confirmation class.  Children and youth who have not been confirmed may come to the altar to receive a blessing.
