We are

St. John
Lutheran Church

The congregation of St. John Lutheran Church is close knit (approximately 225 members), welcoming, friendly, and actively involved in the life of the church.

Visitors are always encouraged and welcomed.

The congregation of St. John Lutheran Church is a community of diverse talents and backgrounds, gathered around the Word of God and what He gives in Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.

From the Pastor

Pastor Duke

“You are witnesses of these things,” Jesus says to his disciples. John
the Evangelist says, “The witness knows that his witness is true.” He
witnessed a flow of blood and water.

We believe the witnesses, and we rejoice that, in baptism, we are washed
in that flood from the cross of Jesus. He is our Lord, and we are
actually happy because of it. As such, we ourselves are witnesses.

We are witnesses of the works of God, and we are amazed by his grace. We
may not understand what he is doing, but we believe all things work out
for the good of those who love him. As Joseph says to his brothers, “You
meant it for evil, but God meant if for good.” And because God is good,
he works to bring good out of evil. As witnesses of these works, we marvel.

We witness together, here, in our congregation, loving one another, as
commanded by Jesus, about whom the Scriptures bear witness. We come to
him because he has eternal life, and he gives it to us.

We, in turn, bear witness about that life, and we give witness to each
other about it, and we continue to bear witness, to our family, to our
friends, and to all those we know and have a relationship with, of any
sort, whether evil or good: God is doing his works among us.

Come to us, so that you may receive the works of God with us, and so
that we might show each other God’s love with you.
