About Us

 


Worship at St. John's
 

Meet Jesus!  
Wherever God’s people are gathered, Jesus is among us. Here we meet Jesus in His Word, in communion with fellow members of the Body of Christ, and in our song and prayer.

 

Experience the Support of a Church!
St. John’s is committed to resources and equipping people for the ministry Jesus gives us. As workers together in His Kingdom, our mission is to support and encourage one another through relationship building, prayer, study and service.

Live as His Disciples!
As Jesus sent out His first disciples, so He sends us out to be His ambassadors in the world. At St. John’s we take our calling to serve in the Kingdom of God seriously and thus provide many avenues to serve the physical and spiritual needs of our neighbors in this community, our neighborhoods, cross-culturally and even to the ends of the earth.

Serve with Us

Cups of Blessing
A year ago our coffee hour turned into a Mission Café. Not only is it a great opportunity to gather and have fellowship but it is a great way to help others in need. The coffee served is from Fair Trade, a partner of Lutheran World Relief, which supports South American coffee farmers who are paid poorly and cannot support their families. Coffee hosts are asked to donate $20 to cover the cost of cups and coffee. This last year, our donations have taken our coffee fellowship a step farther by providing support for a mission.

Through your generosity, the following groups or organizations have received donations throughout the year:

Lori Wilbert – Prison Ministry
Illinois Flood Relief – The Brown Family
Washington Tornado Relief
Oklahoma Tornadoes
Vacation Bible School Kid-to-Kid Mission
LWML Sunglasses
BEDS Plus
Care Net
Habits
Rob Johnson’s mission trip to New Guinea
Sherrie Smith’s mission trip to El Salvador
Diane Bulkeley’s mission trip to China
Mayors Small Group Refugee family

If there is an organization you would like to help, please be our host. Being a host is an easy way to meet new people, be involved and help out a great cause.
 


“Serving our church family is just what we do when someone has the need that we can and should fill; that is what God wants from us. Opening our home to the Brown family took the effort of not just Bob and I, but six generous women who helped clean the basement and get it ready for a family of 6. I was particularly humbled by the generosity of two women who washed the basement floor on their hands and knees and the energy of others to move a lot of furniture, and carry heavy items up the stairs and generally get an ordinary basement ready for habitation. We could not have done it without them.” -Shirley (Mission Cafe)
