What is the ELCA?

The ELCA – or Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – is the national religious body to which St. John’s belongs. Visit the ELCA website for more information about this affiliation of Lutherans in the USA.


What do Lutherans believe?

Lutherans believe in the Triune God who is loving, forgiving, and nurturing. We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who died to free us from our sins. And we believe in the Holy Spirit who is active in our lives bringing inspiration and transformation to each of us. For more about what Lutherans believe, take a look at the Statements of Belief of the ELCA.


Is Communion open to everyone?

Yes. We believe that the gifts of God are free. We commune by intinction most of the time. You will be handed bread and will dip it into the cup. The red liquid is wine; the clear liquid is grape juice. To read more about the Sacrament of Communion, visit our Baptism & Holy Communion page.

Special Announcement

Celebrate the Cookie Lady!

After decades of working to make sure we all get tasty treats during the coffee hour, our resident Cookie Lady, Bernice Jurach, will be retiring from her post.

To honor and celebrate her important role in our church family, we invite the St. John’s community to participate in a cookie celebration on Sunday, November 30th!

As part of our annual Advent Festival, we ask that individuals and families bring batches of their favorite homemade cookies to share in Goethe Hall between the 9am and 11:30am services.

The Manifold Grace of God
A Note from Pastor Frank

Bless the LORD, O my soul.
O LORD my God, you are very great.
You set the earth on its foundations,
so that it shall never be shaken…
O LORD, how manifold are your works!

- Psalm 104: 1-5, 24

The Day-Before-Thanksgiving Meal

“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40

On Wednesday, November 26 we will again open the doors of Goethe Hall to serve a holiday meal for the needy in our neighborhood.

Do you want to help?

Over 100 volunteers are needed to cook, serve, set-up, clean-up, decorate, and hand out fliers before the meal to get the word out.
