ST. JOHN'S MISSION

In response to Jesus' words (Matthew 28: 18-20) and in the power and presence of the Holy Spirit, we will reach out into our community and the world with the Gospel.  We will share God's gifts of love and salvation through the teaching and preaching of God's Word, the Sacraments and the living witness of this congregation and each of its members. We will do all this out of love for God and for our neighbors. We pray that God will use us to increase His kingdom, and that we might grow in faith, love and obedience to the Will of God. 

 

WHY US?

Located in beautiful Medical Lake, St John's Lutheran Church offers congregants an opportunity to participate in a traditional service wrapped in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Lutherans teach that we are who we are because of God's grace- that is, God's love for us without our deserving it in any way. That is shown most clearly in the good news that we are saved only through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. All are invited to participate in Communion. We take care of each other here at St. John's. We take care of each other and our community through physical acts and prayerful acts. We believe in the power of prayer. The power of prayer and genuine love for Jesus and his message for us to love each other creates an accepting and welcoming place for all.
