Who We Are?


We are all here because the Lord loves us unfathomably, cherishes us continuously, and has saved us everlastingly. We have come to thank and praise Him for this wonder and to grow in His grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ and to deepen our trust in Him.

To Our Guests

We pray God’s blessings, extend a warm welcome, and encourage you, especially if you seek a church home, to consider how the Lord might desire to bless you and use your gifts and talents to be a blessing to many through this family of His named St. John Lutheran Church.

We believe, teach, and confess the Lord’s Supper is:
It is the true body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ under the bread and wine, instituted by Christ Himself for us Christians to eat and to drink for the forgiveness of sin, salvation, and eternal life.

We cordially invite everyone to join us for coffee and fellowship after each worship service.

Our worship services are; A Contemporary Worship service on Saturday night at 5:00 pm and two Blended Worship services at 8:30 am and 11 am on Sundays with Bible Study between the two Sunday services.
