Facebook welcome to St John's Lutheran Church! thanks for visiting.

The Common Good

St John’s finished 2016 strong with 125 attending Christmas Eve worship and total benevolent giving to the community/causes of over $30,000 for the year. Biblical studies were strong, a new children’s ministry was started, and the general fund and building fund finished the year in the black.

In the spring of 2017, we plan to improve the lighting in the fellowship hall, have a congregation meeting on the future of our broadcast ministry (channel 20 and streaming), and have a new web page that will enhance our communications with visitors and members. In addition, we are streamlining our building usage process to improve communications between those who use our facilities and those responsible for coordinating the calendar. Considering the legal environment we now live in, and the increased activities of the congregation, council has tasked the property committee to develop a new building use policy by July.

Under the new constitution, both approved and ratified unanimously by the congregation in 2016, we have some new teams (see pages 32-34).

  • A.02
    There shall be a BIBLICAL STUDIES Team: In association with the pastor it promotes the deliberate and organized study of the Bible and the Lutheran confessions. It provides periodicals of the church and devotional material for the homes of all the disciples of St. John’s. It identifies and promotes potential candidates for rostered clergy and commissioned lay ministry in the NALC.
  • A.03
    There shall be a CONGREGATIONAL MISSION Team (CMT): This team will assist the pastor in stimulating and leading all members of the congregation in a continuous and concerted discipleship effort by living out the
    “Great Commission” Matthew 28:18-20 in all ministries of the congregation.
