St. John Lutheran

Shaped by Christ to Serve

At St. John, you'll see all backgrounds and walks of life. You'll see that our gracious God is present too. Our church and school can be found on the city block at the corner of Main and Stafford in downtown Plymouth, WI. Our sanctuary was built over 100 years ago and is a classic combination of traditional Protestant ornamentation, including beautiful stained glass windows, and many modern touches as well. Our school building, the core of which was built in the 1950's, has been regularly expanded and remodeled into a building that we are proud to call home.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23:6)
A History of Legacy & Faithfulness
A History of Legacy & Faithfulness

We are not a church that only exists “in this city,” we are a church that exists “for this city.” In 1855, a group of 13 families from the community of Plymouth began to hold monthly worship services. We met in school buildings and in farm houses until a church building of our own could be constructed. We were supported by other congregations until we could grow large enough to support ourselves. The pastor rode in a horse and buggy to visit people living in the area. We spoke German and were originally known as Evangelische-Lutherische St. Johannes Gemeinde.

So much has changed. And so much has stayed the same. Thousands have called downtown Plymouth their spiritual home as, together, we proclaim God’s Word and reach out into the community with service and love.
