Learning at St. John Lutheran Church
Are you looking for a place to belong? People to grow alongside and make a difference in the world? Friendships that could change your life? We invite you to explore St. John Lutheran – find your next step – and discover the meaningful ways that Jesus will shape you in order to bless others.
Every worship service includes a combination of readings from the Bible, songs and prayers, a time of confession and absolution, a sermon, an offering, and Holy Communion. Baptisms are celebrated with frequency. A typical service lasts about 60 minutes long. Our services make use of hymns, choral and instrumental music, and today’s modern worship music. Each service offers preaching, drawn from Scripture, that speaks to everyday life and is centered on Jesus, His redeeming work for us, and the life as a disciple.
Our Worship services are Saturdays at 4:30pm, Sundays at 8:00am & 10:30am, and Monday nights at 6:30pm.
New Member Welcome Event
The New Member Welcome Event … is where it all begins. Over breakfast and lunch, we’ll answer your questions, introduce you to church leaders, and share how God is moving in and through the people of St. John Lutheran. Whether you are exploring Christianity for the first time or have been a long-time believer, our conversations together will assist you in your walk with the Lord.
All Children (3K – 5th Grade) are invited to gather for Kids Ministry time. These special classes provide opportunities to hear Bible stories, sing songs, make new friends, and learn of their Savior, Jesus Christ, in an age appropriate setting. Our mission is to help your child learn to love the God who created and saved them in Jesus. And we want to make lifelong memories and friendships along the way. Kids Ministry groups meet on Sunday (in the School classrooms) from 9:30-10:15 AM.
Confirmation classes are open to youth of the congregation and their friends. Confirmation instruction occurs in 6th, 7th, & 8th grade. During this time, youth are formally taught to best appreciate what God has done in their lives with the gift of faith begun at their baptism. After considerable study they are given the opportunity to “confirm” that faith and to dedicate themselves towards greater faith maturity, especially in confessing the truth of the Scriptures.

Sunday Morning Education for All
Jr. High students (6th, 7th, and 8th grade) are invited to attend a Bible class just for them. Every Sunday morning from 9:30-10:15 students are led through understanding the Bible and how God’s Word shapes our lives. Mrs. Paula Huebschman leads this group in the conference room next to the school cafeteria.
Sr. High students (9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade) have a Bible class in the youth room during the education time on Sunday mornings. From 9:30 AM to 10:15 AM, High School students read through and discuss the many books of the Bible…bit by bit. Being a part of this class helps in reinforcing a strong Faith base.
Adults are encouraged to come to the cafeteria to participate in a Bible class led alternately by Pastors Schultz and Thompson. Sometimes the conversation is guided by the Pastors and sometimes the conversation is guided by questions from the attendees. Every week provides a thoughtful experience to dwell on through the week.
Forms & Information
At St. John, we take our cues for serving others from Jesus Christ. He is the one who, in a single sentence, sums up the value of being available to others: “I came not to be served, but to serve” (Matthew 20:28).
The opportunities for you to serve others and express your faith are more than anyone can count. There’s a place for you to serve at St. John. Long-term membership is not a prerequisite for serving. Simply bring your fresh ideas, energy and enthusiasm. Keep your eyes open. Daily you will notice ways to extend a helping hand to your neighbor next door, around the block, or through countless St. John channels.
We believe that our campus, buildings, and facilities are a blessing to our congregation and to the community around us. We are a congregation being shaped by Christ to Serve. This handbook and agreement are designed to give users information on how our facility may be used and serve others in the support of the mission of Christ in this place.
St. John Lutheran Church and School requires that ALL volunteers (18 years and older) working with children or youth in service to our ministry fill out and submit a Personal Lifestyle Screening form annually. Please contact the church/school office at 920.893.3071 to complete a background check.
Realm brings our church community online, so that we can stay in contact throughout the week. You can manage your personal and contact information, edit financial gifts, see your giving history, and connect easily with others in the congregation all from a computer or mobile device. Realm requires each user to log in with an email address and a password.
