Celebrating 150 Years

As of July 21, 2017, St. John's Lutheran Church will mark her 150th Anniversary. We are celebrating this milestone with a series of special services to recognize God's continued blessings throughout our history and into the future. Come join us!

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him in love.
