"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself."

(Matthew 22:36-40)

Welcome to St. John Lutheran Church...

Logocreating and nurturing life changing relationships based on the love of God in Jesus Christ, so that we may grow in faith, serve God, and serve our neighbor.

Faith Practices

Faith Practices  I would like to challenge you to practice discipleship.   In sermons and committee meetings we have been talking about Faith Practices. Like a musician playing through the scales on the piano or basketball player shooting 100 free throw shots, these are the practices that will help us become better at discipleship.  A worthy goal for any Christian.


Financial Peace University

FPUSt. John will be hosting Financial Peace University classes starting Sunday October 5th. The classes will begin at 7:00pm. Contact the church office or click here for more information.



Essential Jesus Challenge

Essential Jesus logoYou are invited to join with your St. John family as we re-commit ourselves to the study of scripture with the Essential Jesus Challenge; 100 readings in both the Old and New Testaments about life/teaching/ministry of Jesus. Instead of 3 each week, like we did last time with the E100, we will focus on one reading each week. Hopefully this will give us more time on each reading rather than feeling rushed and behind each week. The Adult Sunday school class will be focusing on the readings each week. The reading as well as questions for thought and discussion will be post on the St. John Facebook page and therefore the "News" tab of this site. Please contact Pastor O'Brien with any questions.
