Welcome to the St. John Lutheran Church Website
IMPORTANT - Pastor's dad, Chuck Jones, has graciously offered to create and maintain a YouTube site which contains all of the Sunday sermons and Wednesday Night dramatic presentations from past Sundays and Wednesdays.  Please press the connection button right below to take you to the You Tube site where the videos are stored.  Or, for the newest videos, continue to look below on this page.
This next Sunday, June 20th, we will have a single service at 9:00 a.m. outside by the Pavillion as a Drive-In Worship Service.  Sit confortably in your car, bring a lawnchair and sit closer to the pavillion, or enjoy one of the picnic tables that will be put out.  There will be special music, the worship service, a sermon and more.  We will celebrate Holy Communion on the last Sunday of each month starting on June 27th (you will receive your cup & wafer together in a compact, professionaly sealed portion as you drive in per person.)  Make sure to join us for this special and beautiful service!

Sunday School has come up with a way to have remote learning for our young people.  Please check the Sunday School page (listed along the column to the left) to access the news on the website page!  Sunday School is at 10:15 a.m. right after the Summer Drive-In Worship Service!
Unfortunately, we are unable to serve food and drinks in the church for now, so there will be no coffee/donut hour as well.  We will remedy these inconveniences as soon as it is safe to do so.

VERY IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER AS WE ARE STILL UNDER SOCIAL DISTANCING DIRECTIVES :  Our Treasurer(s) would like to remind you that the bills to the Church do not stop.  Please make sure that you send in your Offering to the church by mail, or drop it off at the office.  As we stay at home this can be forgotten.  Please keep your church from falling into a financially difficult position!  Thanks!
