About Us

People often connect with us for the first time in worship on a Sunday morning.

All are welcome to join us in Sunday morning worship at 10:00 am. At worship you will find adults and children in worship together.

At St. John’s we highly value meaningful worship each week. We enhance our worship through:

  • Slide Projections of our service including music, in addition to printed bulletins
  • Large format bulletins and hearing assistance devices
  • Communion consisting of traditional bread and wine, as well as grape juice and a gluten-free option. All are welcome to receive Communion including children, toddlers and older.
  • Children’s sermons to engage youngsters

Throughout the week a variety of activities occur at St. John’s including:

Affirmation of Welcome

Called to fulfill our baptismal covenant, while seeking reconciliation with God and with people, we live in faithfulness, through Jesus Christ, by:

Trusting in God, we believe there is a place for people of all ages and physical and mental abilities at the Lord’s table.

Proclaiming Christ in word and deed, we open our doors to people of every nationality, race, and ethnicity, while confessing the sin of racism and the harm racism has caused.

Caring for others and the world God made, we invite and support people of all sexual orientations and gender identities and expressions into our community, as we commit ourselves to removing unspoken barriers to participation and leadership.

Working for justice and peace, we seek to include people of every social, economic, cultural, and faith background in the life and decision-making of the congregation, and strive to overcome injustice, discord, and fighting in our community and world.

We, the people of St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, invite all people—believers, doubters, and seekers—to join us in creating space to explore the intersection of faith, life, and society.

Our Mission Statement

We believe in the Word of God and respond to the Holy Spirit within us by praising the Lord through Worshipping, Praying, Learning, Caring, Sharing, and Serving as Witness to God’s saving Grace.

Our Vision Statement

As people of God, we move forward in unified mission, offering our gifts of time, talents and treasures to the ministries of St. John’s.
