WELCOME TO ST. JOHN'S LUTHERAN CHURCH
We are a community of faith strengthened by the incredible history gifted to us through God's grace. We are a worshiping community that has worshiped together for more than 250 years. And even though our building may be old, our Spirit isn’t. We continue to offer God's Word and Sacrament to the community and the world we live in. We hope that the welcome we speak to you is one that looks and feels like a welcome that comes to you from God. Whenever or however you choose to be with us, may you know that God has a special place and love for you.
