Welcome to the St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church website. (Evangelical means we are Gospel Centered). We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers, and lovers of the word of God. St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience for yourself the fellowship of Christ.

On behalf of the Board of Evangelism/Social Ministry I am writing to request the assistance with the 2018 Easter Food Drive for the needy beginning Sunday, February 4.

The last day for food collection will be on 3/16/18 for the school and 3/18/18 for the church as distribution of the Easter Food Baskets will be on Saturday, 3/24/18.

We welcome various types of can food items such as soups, beans, pasta, fruits and vegetables; as well as boxed starch items such as rice, and instant potatoes.  We can also accept  boxed cereals, cake mixes, and can gravy.

Low sodium food items are requested as some of our recipients have special diets.

Thank you for your thoughtfulness and continued support.

Chair of Board of Evangelism
