About Our Church

St. John's is a congregation in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) - part of the "one, holy, catholic and apostolic church." We worship the holy and blessed Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) and share in a rich apostolic heritage in both Word and Sacrament that is catholic, evangelical, and reforming. As baptized disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, marked with the sign of the holy cross, we celebrate a "Living Faith" as we worship, pray, study, invite, encourage, serve, and give..."God's Work~Our Hands"
