The founding fathers of this congregation chose for its name, Saint John Evangelical Lutheran Church, not that we believe that in St. John lies salvation, but like St. John, and his gospel, our purpose is clear and concise, to present the grace of God as revealed in His Son. "But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have eternal life in His name. The mission and ministry of St. John has been and continues to be to provide a place where people of all ages can grow in grace and knowledge. As we seek "to grow in grace and knowledge", St. John is committed to provide for our children through Sunday School and Confirmation classes. Also to provide for mature Christians a place to worship and receive God's grace and continue to grow in knowledge through Bible study and to provide for a place where we can have fun and fellowship in a Christian setting.
2010 marked St. John Lutheran Church's Sesquicentennial (150 Year) Anniversary, then 493 years since Martin Luther hammered onto the church door at Wittenburg 95 theses that would emphasize the notion of individual and collective freedom.
We dedicated a new flag pole July 15, 2018 in memory of DA Winkler.
