What people are saying
He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation." [Mark 16:15]
I am so pleased to be able to express my love and gratitude to my brothers and sisters at St. John. Although I have been blessed to have Pastor in my life for many years it was just four years ago that Jesus work me up from a deep sleep and told me to leave my current church and come to St. John. Because he knows what is best for me I made that change and my life has only become more happy and blessed. Also, joining Rebekah Circle introduced me to some of the most awesome ladies I have ever met. Our study of the Bible with Beth Moore has only brought us closer. Thank you all for allowing me to love you unconditionally.
God is Great and with us all here at St. John. - Sue T.
How do I feel about St. John? It is my home, a place where I feel loved and appreciated. It is where I am nourished in God’s Word. It is where I feel connected to so many in our congregation. St. John has offered me a chance to teach children which is what I was called to do. I delight in the opportunity to teach children of children I have taught in the past and my own granddaughter’s. I have established lasting relationships with so many in the congregation and I cherish that. God has blessed me so richly in my membership of the community we lovingly call St. John. I wouldn’t be anywhere but at St. John for worship. God blessed all of us when He sent Pastor Phillips and his family to us. We are bound together through the love of Christ Jesus. I love St. John. - Bonnie L.
When I was called to be the Pastor of St. John, I found a congregation that is Christ-centered, Spirit-filled, service oriented, and people who are engaging and welcoming. The friendly atmosphere of the members of St. John creates a place that is not only a church, but a home where Jesus Christ is worshiped and served. We not only focus internally, but also beyond the four walls of the church. No congregation is perfect, but if you want to embrace a congregation of vibrant worship, an amazing Sunday School program, active youth programs, outreach ministry, dynamic organizations, and the warmth, joy, and friendship of a spiritual family, you will experience all this and more at St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church. The St. John family awaits you with open arms and welcoming hearts. God's blessings be with you. - Pastor Tom Phillips
I have been a member for 47 years, my whole life. I tried other churches when I first moved out of the area but never found any that offers as much as St. John. I like having a personal connection with my Pastor. We have the most compassionate Pastor and he is always there for his parishioners. We offer Bible Studies, Men's group, women's circles, youth groups, choir, bell choir, kids ring, bluegrass free music school and jams, Sunday School for all ages, Bible School and best of all The Word of God is at the center of it all. The church is so beautiful. I love the stained glass windows and the beautiful music that fill our sanctuary. If you are looking for a place to worship with other Christians, learn more about Jesus, or just share in fellowship with other believers, please come see me at St. John. God bless. - Stacy R.
