Welcome to St. John's from Pastor Ed

Jesus promises, "I have come to give you life, life in abundance." What a joy it is for us to share with you our Lord's gift of abundant life!
At St. John's, we seek to be God's community of grace where all people are welcome. Here we lift high the cross of our Lord Jesus and proclaim His love for all people. Here we welcome everyone to our Lord's Table of love and forgiveness.
Here we help parents nurture the faith of their children. Here we share our joys and our sorrows, knowing God can heal. Here we celebrate each person's gift of faith and service.
Come and see the place our Lord has prepared for you at St. John's! We welcome you to worship, grow, pray and serve with us.
God bless!
Pastor Edgar Schambach
